AWS Virtual Meetup - Network Connectivity in AWS
Thursday, 20 May 2021
12:00 PM - 01:30 PM
iO Associates are delighted to announce our next AWS Virtual Meetup will be on Thursday 20th May at 12:00pm! The topic of this session is ‘Network Connectivity in AWS: VPC Communications & Workload Acceleration’, which will be delivered by David Gendel, Solutions Architect Manager at AWS in the Southeast United States.
This session will focus 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 will discuss 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 will discuss options and best practices for CloudFront, Global Accelerator, and VPN Accelerator.
