Most global networks today include resources that are both located in the cloud and on on-premises networks. To monitor that entire global network, customers must stitch together data from these diverse locations. This results in an inconsistent management and monitoring experience, increased costs and efforts, and missed insights from the lack of visibility into the global network.
AWS Transit Gateway network manager provides a single global view of your private network. Start by registering your AWS Transit Gateways and defining your on-premises resources. Our partners, such as Cisco, Aruba, Silver Peak, and Aviatrix, have configured their software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN) devices to connect with Transit Gateway network manager in only a few clicks. Then define the resources appearing in the dashboard of Transit Gateway network manager as devices, sites, and links. This enables you to visualize your global network in a topology diagram and in a geographical map. You can then review utilization metrics, such as bytes in/out, packets in/out, packets dropped, and alerts for changes in the topology, routing, and up/down connection status.
AWS Transit Gateway network manager includes events and metrics to monitor the quality of your global network, both in AWS and on premises. Event alerts specify changes in the topology, routing, and connection status. Usage metrics provide information on up/down connection, bytes in/out, packets in/out, and packets dropped.
Visualize and monitor your global network solely from the dashboard of the AWS Transit Gateway network manager. See a list view, logical view, and map view of your network resources and connectivity. Transit Gateway network manager notifies you of unhealthy connections, changes in availability and performance across AWS Regions and on-premises sites.
AWS Transit Gateway network manager seamlessly integrates with SD-WAN solutions, from Cisco, Aruba, Silver Peak, and Aviatrix, making it the unified interface to manage your global network across AWS and on-premises locations. These SD-WAN management consoles are configured to automatically create AWS Site-to-Site VPN connections from your premises to AWS.
How it works
AWS Transit Gateway network manager's SD-WAN partners makes it very easy to add new on-premises locations to your network. You can automatically provision AWS Site-to-Site VPN connections on your SD-WAN devices. You can connect new network locations remotely from your SD-WAN console and the AWS global network.
Network Manager provides you with event notifications from a single interface so that you can get a global view of what is happening on your network. You can identify and troubleshoot network problems faster than if you received the information from different tools.
Transit Gateway network manager enable you to see network activity in many locations from one single dashboard. You can compare activity and identify inconsistencies between on-premises locations and the AWS cloud, or issues that affect several locations differently.
"Cisco is enabling customers to optimize security and application experience as they expand to the cloud. Through our partnership with AWS, the integration of Cisco SD-WAN with AWS Transit Gateway lets our mutual customers automate connectivity while ensuring visibility, security and simplified management of their application networking. Together, we deliver more ways for customers to save time, reduce complexity and advance hybrid IT strategies."
- Sachin Gupta, SVP of Product Management, Enterprise Networking Business, Cisco
"With branch locations scaling up to the hundreds – if not thousands – of sites, the need for flexibility and simplified management powered by the cloud is critical. The integration between Aruba’s SD-Branch solution and AWS uses the power of the cloud to seamlessly connect branches to workloads in any region by connecting to the closest AWS Transit Gateway, accelerate VPN connectivity for any branch bypassing the public Internet, and deliver branch-to-branch connectivity in different regions by leveraging the AWS mid-mile."
- Kishore Seshadri, vice president and general manager of SD-WAN Solutions at Aruba, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company
"We are pleased to expand our collaboration with Amazon Web Services, announcing integration between the Unity EdgeConnect SD-WAN edge platform and the new AWS Transit Gateway Network Manager. The new Transit Gateway Network Manager will enable joint customers to centrally monitor, manage and automate connectivity from on-premise EdgeConnect deployments to AWS network infrastructure and workload instances, providing a global view of network telemetry, events and changes to deliver the highest quality of experience to branch and remote site users."
- David Hughes, founder and CEO of Silver Peak
"We have a long history of innovative collaboration with AWS and our customers are building on a cloud-native networking architecture that takes full advantage of the global AWS infrastructure. We are excited to deliver the Aviatrix CloudWAN service integrated with AWS Transit Gateway Network Manager. CloudWAN extends Aviatrix’s intelligent orchestration and control reach beyond the cloud core to enterprise branch offices in a way that enables the millions of Cisco branch routers that are deployed worldwide to connect to AWS with the least latency possible."
- Sherry Wei, Founder and Chief Product Officer of Aviatrix
