Have you noticed that while cloud is all about infrastructure agility, the networking to the cloud is static and not agile at all. This means while it takes minutes to provision compute and storage in a VPC (virtual private cloud), it can take months to network to the same VPC. This is an impedance mismatch and often leads to performance issue, architectural challenges, slowdown in cloud projects and overall poor experience for hybrid cloud networking.
If you’ve ever deployed AWS Direct Connect or are in the process of deploying it, you know that it is a long and arduous process. It can take weeks if not months before you can send even one bit from your enterprise network to your network in AWS. In addition to time, there is also the added overhead of hardware, networking ninjas, and cost that makes AWS Direct Connect beyond reach for most companies. But before we dive into this dilemma, why do people want AWS Direct Connect?
The definition of hybrid cloud typically involves attaching a part of an enterprise network to the cloud or vice versa. AWS Direct Connect is the ultimate hammer to a hybrid cloud problem, but you don’t always need a hammer for all hybrid cloud problems. There are easier and quicker ways to build a hybrid cloud.
Aviatrix’s hybrid cloud solution is 100% software and deploys in minutes. The solution looks like this…
We are proud to announce that Aviatrix Cloud Gateway now supports GCP, in addition to AWS and Azure. Last week we attended GCP Next 16. It was a great show for us as over 200 visitors came to our booth and learned first hand what Aviatrix Cloud Native working is all about. Aviatrix Cloud Native networking provides simplified scalability, connectivity to any cloud architecture and end to end network security.
Sounds fancy and what’s in it for me, you may wonder.
