iO Associates are delighted to bring you our next AWS Virtual Meetup! The topic of this session was ‘Network Connectivity in AWS: VPC Communications & Workload Acceleration’, which was delivered by David Gendel, Solutions Architect Manager at AWS for the Southeast United States.

This session focused on two critical parts of running your workloads in AWS: 

• How do you enable communication between different VPCs.
• How do you ensure that your workload maintains the lowest possible latency for your users.

In the first half, we discussed options and best practices for VPC Peering, Transit Gateway, and the concept of a networking hub VPC where you can run 3rd party products you already know. In the second half, we discussed options and best practices for CloudFront, Global Accelerator, and VPN Accelerator.
