Before we get into the details, does your company use Amazon Web Services (AWS) for cloud infrastructure and also need to connect multiple cloud networks across the globe? Or maybe you want to implement a hybrid network architecture, or you have rigorous worldwide security or compliance programs in place? If you answered, ‘yes’ to any…

We have recently heard from many customers that the Transit VPC architecture is hard to manage and troubleshoot. On one hand, there is the management of the third-party software at the hub and Amazon’s VGW from every spoke. On the other hand, there is the troubleshooting of multiple software, vendors, routing tables and lack of visibility overall.

As enterprises move more of their applications to both public and private clouds, it’s becoming impossible to ignore the friction involved in hybrid cloud management. Until now, hybrid cloud management has meant slow, error-prone manual provisioning; expensive operations and scaling; and highly skilled networking experts for even the simplest change requests.

To ease this friction, Nutanix and Aviatrix announced a joint solution at Nutanix .NEXT 2017 that aims to reboot the hybrid cloud. Nutanix customers can now have the one-click power of Aviatrix Cloud InterConnect (ACX) from inside Nutanix Calm, and can create an integrated hybrid cloud fabric across their private data centers and Amazon AWS in minutes, with a click of a button! Thanks to the one-click power of Aviatrix Cloud InterConnect (ACX) software, Nutanix customers can now enjoy seamless networking across their entire hybrid cloud infrastructure!

IT organizations have consistently overlooked one risk category that has haunted their cloud projects and agility aspirations: Operational connectivity to your cloud provider. An analyst put it this way: “Cloud providers built a beautiful highway, but left the on-ramps for the drivers to figure out.”

Amid all the excitement around Cloud-powered scalability, Network Engineers are still responsible for operating this organically growing animal that started off as a small pet (project).
