6 WHITE PAPER WHITE PAPER ActiveMesh – ECMP Active-Active Full Mesh Network HA Aviatrix secure network transit is designed with active- active high-availability and redundant pathing. Pairs of Aviatrix Gateways, deployed in separate availability zones, establish a full mesh, multi-path connection that maximizes both throughput performance and network availability. Deterministic and Optimal Path Selection ActiveMesh allows gateways to take BGP metrics such as MED, AS-PATH into consideration for the same route from different neighbors and use that to make the optimal path selection. The path selection algorithm is prescriptive and provides significant flexibility options for multi-region designs. For example, allowing for on-prem route manipulation setting preference for between neighbors in different regions. Asymmetric Routing and Loop Avoidance To support multi-region HA, both on prem data centers advertise the same routes into multiple regions through the cloud access layer into each of the Aviatrix Transit gateways. Overlapping CIDRs heard by Aviatrix Transit gateways in both regions are advertised over the transitive peering connection to the other region's transit pair. This would normally cause serious asymmetric routing or routing loop challenges. However, the Aviatrix Controller, by default, has the intelligence to ensure the local region route is preferred over the transitive peering route, avoiding any loops or asymmetric issues. Aviatrix CoPilot Visualization Platform Aviatrix CoPilot provides a global operational view of your multi-cloud network not available from AWS, Azure or any other cloud provider. Enterprise IT teams – who need day- two operational visibility for cloud networking – use CoPilot's dynamic topology mapping to maintain an accurate view of their global multi-cloud networks, FlowIQ to analyze global network traffic flows and global heat maps and time series trend charts to easily pinpoint and troubleshoot traffic anomalies. CoPilot leverages the intelligence and advanced network and security services delivered by the Aviatrix cloud network platform. With Aviatrix, cloud network and security operations teams have familiar day-two operational capabilities such as packet capture, trace route and ping to resolve problems faster. Operational features include resource tagging, resource clustering, infrastructure monitoring and alerting, all specifically built for multi-cloud network operations.
