Using AWS Network Manager Events to manage and monitor your global network

AWS Network Manager is a great tool that lets you monitor changes in your network and create automations. In this post, we cover how to leverage events in Network Manager to get notified about network changes and how to use AWS Serverless technologies to enrich the information provided by these events. Let’s start with a simple question: What is Network […]

Understand your network traffic trends using AWS Transit Gateway Flow Logs

AWS Transit Gateway is a network transit hub that enables you to connect thousands of Amazon Virtual Private Clouds (Amazon VPCs) and your on-premises networks using a single gateway. This simplifies your network connection and puts an end to complex peering relationships. AWS Transit Gateway Flow Logs enables you to export detailed telemetry information, such as source/destination […]

Improving Performance on AWS and Hybrid Networks

In this post, we provide recommendations to improve network performance on AWS and hybrid networks. In today’s enterprise networking environment, it is becoming common for customers to have multi-gigabit connectivity to AWS either through AWS Direct Connect or over the Internet. Although network bandwidth is fundamental, several other factors come into play for network performance, […]

How to use AWS Network Manager to visualize Transit Gateways across multiple accounts in the AWS Organization

When you migrate or build a new applications in AWS, you must connect multiple Amazon Virtual Private Clouds (Amazon VPCs) spread across different accounts and your on-premises systems with these VPCs. AWS Transit Gateway is one of the most popular and commonly used services in these scenarios. When you want communication/isolation between VPCs, and they also […]

Integrate SD-WAN devices with AWS Transit Gateway and AWS Direct Connect

Many AWS customers like to use their existing Software Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) devices when connecting their on-premises networks to an AWS Transit Gateway. When doing this, a large number of prefixes must be advertised to and from AWS Transit Gateway. In this post, we show how to use the Transit Gateway Connect feature […]

Monitoring AWS Transit Gateway route limits using a serverless architecture

AWS Transit Gateway simplifies your network and puts an end to complex peering relationships. It acts as a cloud router and scales elastically based on the volume of network traffic. It can centralize connections (known as attachments) from your on-premises networks, and attach to Amazon Virtual Private Clouds (VPC) Virtual Private Networks (VPN), AWS Direct […]

Simplify SD-WAN connectivity with AWS Transit Gateway Connect

SD-WANs, or Software Defined Wide Area Networks, have long been used to connect data centers and branch offices over the public internet. Today, those networks must also extend to the cloud. However, traditional SD-WAN infrastructure is not always well suited for this task—significantly increasing complexity and operational burden. At the same time, many AWS customers […]

Whitepaper: Simplifying Global Network Architecture

Deploying new applications and workloads can require big changes to your network. Read what the Enterprise Strategy Group found during their technical validation of AWS Transit Gateway. This report, Simplifying Global Network Architecture, dives into the tradeoffs and benefits of building networks with AWS Transit Gateway. It details their findings from technical validation with three […]

Advanced Troubleshooting with AWS Transit Gateway Network Manager Route Analyzer

At re:Invent 2019, we introduced additional capabilities to build, manage, and monitor global networks using AWS Transit Gateway and AWS Transit Gateway Network Manager. In 2020, we published a number of articles expanding on the topic of global networks. First, a blog post addressing why would you build a global network on AWS. Next, how to build […]
