Multi-Cloud Networking & Security Using Aviatrix Private Mode

April 27 - 10:00 am Pacific Time and 4:00 pm CET

Cloud networking can quickly become complex and network assets can soon start to multiply especially in a multi cloud environment. Certain enterprises follows extremely strict security policies where no workload including infrastructure components are allowed to communicate to outside world directly from their workload VPCs/VNets/VCNs. Managing these strict policies while solving public cloud’s networking and security challenges is a daunting task.

Hear from Saad Mirza and John Gonsalves who will explain why it is important to have a private and secure Cloud Out Of Band Network using Private IP addresses for your entire multi-cloud network.

How to gain unprecedented control and visibility into your AWS networking

Cloud networking can quickly become complex, making it difficult to achieve the visibility necessary to gain critical insights. This is true in AWS just like all of the other cloud service providers. AWS has continued to innovate and bring new constructs to VPC networking. However, each new features adds complexity and they are seldom shrink wrapped together to provide a holistic network offering. Hear from James Devine, Aviatrix Principal Solutions Architect, who came from AWS as a networking SME and is a co-author of AWS Certified Advanced Networking Study Guide about how Aviatrix can help provide unprecedented visibility and control into your AWS Networking.

Accelerate Azure landing zone deployment and CAF alignment

As organizations look to expand their cloud footprints in Azure, many IT teams look to the Azure Cloud Adoption Framework for best practices. Azure landing zones often guide an organizations initial footprint and accounts for scale, security, governance, networking, and identity. As with any framework, turning the design guidelines and principles into tangible components can be challenging. Whether new to cloud entirely or embracing Azure as a secondary or tertiary cloud, Aviatrix simplifies the deployment of landing zones within Azure while also providing advanced features to compensate for real-world scenarios, all while maintaining CAF foundational principles.

Meeting the challenges requires the ability to embrace the simplicity and agility everyone expects from cloud, with the operations and security enterprises require

Cloud Networking and Security Designs for Amazon EKS

Kubernetes based workloads are on the rise in both on-premises data centers and in the cloud. On-premises, enterprises leverage tight control over how Kubernetes clusters are created, deployed and networked. However, Kubernetes in cloud, while simplified, introduces challenges because enterprises lose much of the control they are used to. For example, while Kubernetes Container Network Interfaces (CNI) for intra cluster networking is very robust, a challenge many cloud architects face is networking and security for traffic egressing or ingressing Kubernetes clusters.

Cloud Networking Tips for On-Prem Network Engineers

The role of cloud architects has become critical to businesses as enterprises accelerate their migration of production workloads into the cloud. Architects need to learn new skills in the cloud, but are challenged first by understanding the new jargons and terminologies and secondly by the fact these terminologies do not always get applied the same way as in the on-prem world. Join Aviatrix Principal Solutions Architects, who have helped hundreds of enterprises transition through the multi-cloud adoption maze.

How to architect a multi-cloud network that includes Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI)

Multi-Cloud is the reality, and in 2021 the enterprise migration to public cloud will only accelerate. Oracle is leading enterprise customers to migrate their databases to OCI and is offering a broad set of services designed to help migrate and maintain the Oracle database in OCI, in addition to other IaaS and SaaS offerings. If you are an enterprise exploring this option, you likely already operating in Microsoft Azure or AWS. Learn how Aviatrix provides simple, secure and high performance connectivity between your enterprise data center, OCI, and other clouds. In this Tech Talk we will touch on the most popular scenarios we see in customer designs in the context of Oracle Cloud - DBs and much more!

Azure cloud architect’s guide to multi-cloud networking

The role of cloud architects have become critical to businesses as enterprises accelerate their migration of production workloads into the cloud. Many any IT teams began their journey to cloud leveraging the application services offered in AWS, however the migration of traditional business applications has driven cloud teams to Microsoft Azure as well. While there are clear benefits offered in Azure from an application and cost point of view, operating in a multi-cloud environment from a cloud networking point of view presents unanticipated challenges.

Whether your cloud environment is expanding into Azure or Azure is your primary cloud and you are preparing for inevitable multi-cloud expansion, cloud network architects need to understand the Azure network framework and the advanced network, security and operational visibility services that can simplify multi-cloud networking.

Aviatrix and Pureport: Maximizing Inter-Cloud and Site-to-Cloud Performance in your Multi-Cloud Network Architecture

Cloud providers offer solutions for dedicated, high-speed, private connections to on-prem. Examples are AWS Direct Connect, Azure ExpressRoute, and Google Cloud Interconnect. However, they are time-consuming and complex to operate. Dedicated hardware must be configured and maintained on-prem. Also, the traffic is not encrypted.

And more importantly, it's not natively possible to connect those private cloud connections to each other, since they are competitors. So, how can we create inter-cloud communication with a high performance and a low latency?

Join this tech talk to learn how Aviatrix and Pureport are partnering to provide an enterprise-grade private connectivity to the cloud, and between clouds, with significant advantages.

Top 5 Reasons Cisco CSR customers are Migrating to a Cloud Network Platform

Many early cloud adopters sought to maintain operational familiarity with Cisco hardware products they have on-premise by deploying the CSR 1000v virtual appliances in their AWS, Azure and GCP environments. Today enterprises are migrating away from using CSR in public cloud – it’s complex, difficult to operationalize, and lacks many of the modern, cloud-like capabilities that networking teams now require. If you are considering renewing your CSR licenses for another year, this is the event for you.

In this technical webinar, we’ll discuss what’s involved in migrating from an existing CSR deployment and the factors you should consider – including multi-cloud architecture, network segmentation, centralized management, automation, route limitations, troubleshooting and third party service insertion to name a few.

Simplified Security Service Chaining with SSL Offload in Public Cloud by using Aviatrix Transit and F5 Networks

As enterprises move mission-critical workloads to the public cloud, the need for security has increased due to proximity to internet and entities outside of enterprise control as compared to on-prem data centers. Enterprises require increased level of security and deeper inspection of network traffic. Given that most of today’s network traffic is encrypted, native NGFWs are often challenged by double burden of decrypting SSL and then doing the inspection. If there are multiple appliances that need to do inspection, such as NGFW, IPS/IDS and other appliances, decrypting/encrypting multiple times becomes very expensive. Hence, for enterprise architectures with one or more inspection points, it is optimal to offload traffic decryption to a specialized appliance which can then securely send the traffic to one or multiple service chained appliances for firewalling and payload analysis.

Join us in this session to learn how Aviatrix and F5 are solving these challenges and empowering your cloud and multi-cloud environments to provide visibility across the full security chain for any network topology, device, or application.
