Although the basic concepts underpinning traditional networks and networks for the cloud are similar, there are many issues that are specific to each. In this session, we explore the fundamentals of networking in AWS. First we look at the basics of designing and building VPCs, including selecting your IP space, subnetting, routing, security, and more. We then discuss different approaches and scenarios for connecting your VPC to your data center with AWS VPN or AWS Direct Connect. This mid-level architecture discussion is for architects, network administrators, and technology decision-makers interested in understanding the building blocks that are available with Amazon VPC.
