In this episode of Packet Pushers, it’s AWS networking. You use AWS and think you know what you need to know? Maybe, but our guest today can probably share a thing or two you didn’t even know were things when it comes to networking in the Amazon public cloud.
Our guest is Nick Matthews, Principal Solutions Architect at Amazon Web Services. Nick focuses on networking and security.
Nick pinged us, hoping to share his perspective on cloud networking from the inside. Come and have a look.
We talk about how networking basics do–and don’t–map to the cloud, and how the architecture of cloud applications influence network design and operations.
We also explore AWS networking elements under the hood, such as Hyperplane, and how trends such as SD-WAN and SDN influence Amazon networking.
