AWS Transit Gateway Briefing

2 hours
AWS Transit Gateway is the long-awaited cloud-native solution that simplifies connectivity of the multiple VPCs and also provides the ability to connect the on-premises networks. This lab briefing provides a detailed overview of the Transit Gateway architecture and then dives into the NGFW integration and more advanced routing topologies.

Goals & Objectives

AWS Transit Gateway is a service that enables customers to connect multiple Amazon Virtual Private Clouds (VPCs) and their on-premises networks via VPN or Direct Connect. It was designed to simplify the networking connectivity to the cloud from the on-premises networks, provide an option to connect multiple VPCs together across the different accounts, scale the bandwidth elastically based on the application requirements and manage connectivity policies within the AWS cloud.

Goals and Objectives 

This lab briefing is designed and built to provide hands-on experience with the following: 

  1. Explore AWS Transit Gateway Architecture.
  2. Tests the case for providing connectivity between on-prem and AWS.
  3. Review the Transit Gateway Reference Architecture and test the service insertion functionality.
