Today on Heavy Networking, we return to the subject of networking in AWS, with a focus on AWS Transit Gateways.
The Transit Gateway is an evolution of Amazon’s transit VPC. It centralizes VPN connectivity to multiple VPCs, allowing for greater scale as well as simplified connectivity and management of the VPNs that connect VPCs.
Nick Matthews is our inside guide to this service. He’s a Principal Solutions Architect at AWS.
Nick will also peel back the onion on other networking features including Global Accelerator, TLS termination on Network Load Balancer, and odds and ends such as Client VPN.
In addition, Nick shares details about the technology and architecture that underpins Amazon’s networking services.
This is not a sponsored show. More and more listeners are involved with cloud networking, so this episode aims to help you understand what you’re getting into.
We first heard from Nick back in show 387. If you’d like some insight into what’s really happening under the hood of AWS networking, that’s a good place to start.
