Don’t miss this opportunity to join Nick Matthews, Principal Solutions Architect at AWS, Sherry Wei, CTO & Founder at Aviatrix, and Stuart Scott, AWS Training Lead at Cloud Academy for an exclusive webinar as they unpack the latest advancements and updates related to networking in AWS.
AWS Transit Gateway is a new service to connect VPCs and consolidate edge connections to on-premises networks. You can connect existing VPCs, data centers, remote offices, and remote gateways to a managed Transit Gateway and control network routing and security.
In addition to a recap of this week’s networking and security news, you will learn how to:
- Ensure the VPC network meets security best practices
- Limit lateral movement during a breach
- Minimize blast radius due to misconfigurations
- Avoid delays due to tedious, manual configuration
- Use Existing Direct Connect to support on-premises resources
Aviatrix — an Amazon Web Services Networking Competency partner — is the pioneer in software-defined cloud routing that makes cloud networking as simple and dynamic as cloud compute and storage. Aviatrix enables cloud engineers to easily and securely route traffic across any public cloud, on-premises and remote-user networks
Sherry Wei, CTO & Founder - Aviatrix
Sherry Wei quit her job at Huawei in 2013 and bootstrapped Aviatrix. The idea behind the technology was to extend the enterprise datacenter to AWS without touching the underlying network infrastructure. Aviatrix was able to acquire a couple of enterprise customers using its hybrid cloud solution before receiving funding. Prior to Huawei, Sherry worked at Cisco for 13 years. She led and developed a few Cisco first generation products, among them the first Intel-based Cisco Integrated System Router (ISR) and the first Cisco T1/E1 Voice and WAN Interface Module. Sherry joined Cisco as part of the acquisition of Ardent Communications where she was the first employee and wrote a significant amount of code. Prior to Ardent, Sherry was an early employee at Centillion Networks that was acquired by Bay Networks (Nortel). Sherry holds a Ph.D from Purdue University in EECS.
