Amazon Web Services (AWS) supports an ever-growing ecosystem of products and services built by AWS Partner Network (APN) Partners.
AWS Solution Space allows top APN Partners to display customer-ready solutions that are quick, cost effective, and repeatable.
Each solution is based on architectures validated by AWS and are meant to create new business opportunities for both APN Partners and AWS customers, leading to increased production workloads on AWS.
AWS provides the networking tools that enable you to securely connect to the cloud and then isolate, control, and distribute your applications across Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) resources and other AWS services.
Networking solutions available from APN Partners can help you establish your secure, scalable, cost-effective cloud presence more rapidly. Whether you’re planning to migrate to AWS or are looking to expand your established network capabilities on the cloud, there are readily available tools and resources at your disposal to accelerate the realization of your goals.
Integration is the main concept behind AWS solutions for networking. The focus is on highlighting three key areas:
- Integrated Network Solutions
- Managed Networking
- Hybrid Network Architecture
These solutions integrate with other AWS products and augment native AWS networking services such as Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC), AWS Elastic Load Balancing, Amazon CloudFront, Amazon Route 53, AWS Direct Connect, and AWS PrivateLink.
Integrated Network Solutions
As enterprise workloads and migrations get more and more complex, the need for the underlying network to handle applications in a fault-tolerant and high-performance manner is paramount to the success of AWS networking.
Integrated Network Solutions from APN Partners enhance the network to provide the performance needed to advance your AWS journey.

Managed Network Solutions
With Managed Network Solutions from APN Partners, you can choose to outsource both AWS native and hybrid cloud services. They often include the hybrid network architecture and public/private connectivity that leverages SD-WAN, VPN, Transit VPC, AWS Direct Connect, and IPSec/SSL encryption.
If infrastructure design and connectivity deployment is not your strength, you can leverage one of these solutions and keep your focus on building cloud applications.

Hybrid Network Solutions
Deploy a Hybrid Network Solution from the APN Partners to define your AWS Cloud architecture.
These solutions connect your on-premises and AWS resources through a common network to establish one environment. You can then extend your on-premises network configuration and business applications so AWS resources and services operate as part of your existing on-premises network environment.
VMware Cloud on AWS Solutions
VMware Cloud on AWS is an integrated cloud offering jointly developed by AWS and VMware. It allows organizations to seamlessly migrate and extend their on-premises VMware vSphere-based environments to the AWS Cloud running on next-generation Amazon EC2 bare metal infrastructure.
VMware Cloud on AWS is ideal for enterprise IT infrastructure and operations organizations looking to migrate their on-premises vSphere-based workloads to the public cloud, consolidate and extend their datacenter capacities, and optimize, simplify, and modernize disaster recovery solutions.
With three new customer-ready solutions for VMware Cloud on AWS, you can optimize your hybrid cloud strategy with pre-integrated solutions and pre-defined services from AWS and VMware.
Each of these customer-ready solutions are based on architectures validated by AWS. They include access solution briefs, reference architectures, and links to additional resources.
