    • Secure Remote Access to AWS: Why OpenVPN & Jump Hosts Aren’t Enough
      Secure Remote Access to AWS: Why OpenVPN & Jump Hosts Aren’t Enough Aviatrix CTO Sherry Wei and Neel Kamal, head of field operations at Aviatrix Recorded: May 14 2018 6:20 pm UTC 48 mins
    • OpenVPN is a popular and respected solution for enabling remote access to AWS VPCs for IT personnel, cloud developers, and a wide variety of end-user roles. While OpenVPN may be all that is needed to enable cloud access for a few users, it alone cannot meet the needs of growing organizations – particularly those that have security or compliance requirements. Similarly, Bastion hosts or jump hosts are often used when AWS is primarily focused on developers, but these tools likewise have scaling and security limitations.

      As part of our fact-filled AWS Bootcamp series, Aviatrix CTO Sherry Wei and Neel Kamal, head of field operations at Aviatrix, review key requirements and compare the remote user VPN options available for managing and securing access to AWS VPC resources. They also demonstrate features that ensure your remote access tools and methodology are “enterprise cloud-ready.”

    • Introducing AWS Marketplace
      Introducing AWS Marketplace AWS Marketplace software solution application Recorded: Apr 21 2017 1:20 pm UTC 2 mins
    • AWS Marketplace is an online store that makes it easy for customers to find, compare, buy, and immediately start using the software and services they need to build products and run their businesses.

      The AWS Marketplace joins existing AWS partner programs such as the Amazon Partner Network and is another example to AWS's commitment to growing a strong ecosystem of software and solution partners.

      Visitors to the marketplace can use AWS Marketplace's 1-Click deployment to quickly launch pre-configured software and pay only for what they use, by the hour or month. AWS handles billing and payments, and software charges appear on customers' AWS bill.

    • Seven Criteria for Building an AWS Global Transit Network
      Seven Criteria for Building an AWS Global Transit Network Aviatrix CTO Sherry Wei Recorded: May 1 2018 4:35 pm UTC 32 mins
    • Global Transit Network architecture is critical to the success of your AWS cloud deployment. Implemented correctly, a Global Transit Hub enables traffic to securely flow from on-prem to VPCs, or from VPC to VPC, in a way that minimizes complexity and cost and maximizes agility and availability. Implemented poorly, it becomes a choke point that is time-consuming – and costly – to maintain and troubleshoot.

      As part of our fact-filled AWS Bootcamp series, Aviatrix CTO Sherry Wei reviews seven best-practice topics for Global Transit Network architecture.

      Free Evaluation Checklist
      In addition to the slides, you’ll also receive a handy spreadsheet-based checklist with 50 architecture and business goals to consider when evaluating solutions for your own Global Transit Network.

      Who Should Watch?
      Anyone responsible for connectivity of cloud resources, including cloud architects, cloud infrastructure managers, cloud engineers, and networking staff.

    • What You Need to Know About Operationalizing Your AWS Transit Hub
      What You Need to Know About Operationalizing Your AWS Transit Hub Aviatrix CTO Sherry Wei and Neel Kamal, head of field operations at Aviatrix Recorded: May 4 2018 7:50 pm UTC 43 mins
    • Once you've designed and secured your Global Transit Network, are you done? Are you ready to hand day-to-day responsibility over to an operations team? Or, are there other elements you need to ensure that the day-to-day operation of your transit hub is efficient and effective?

      As part of our fact-filled AWS Bootcamp series, Aviatrix CTO Sherry Wei and Neel Kamal, head of field operations at Aviatrix, demonstrate the best practices they've gleaned from working with operations teams, all who require:

      - Visibility: Do you have a way to centrally view your network, see performance bottlenecks, control security policies, and set other configuration details?
      - Deep Analytics: Can you easily gather performance and audit data and export it to Splunk, DataDog, or other advanced reporting tools?
      - Monitoring and Troubleshooting: Do you have a real-time view of network health, and how easily can you access the data needed to locate and fix issues?
      - Alert Management: When issues do occur, what real-time alerting is available?

      Who Should Watch?
      Anyone responsible for connectivity of cloud resources, including cloud architects, cloud infrastructure managers, cloud engineers, and networking staff.

    • As incumbent enterprises move to the cloud, questions arise how transform the legacy IT culture to maximize the agility and flexibility AWS provides. Speed and dexterity must be implemented in a consistent manner, minimizing the impact to the organizational structure, but taking into account the existing skill sets and knowledge base. With AWS Service Catalog, you can manage commonly deployed AWS CloudFormation template versions, enable controlled self-provisioning, and leverage those same products in your automated deployment pipelines to AWS. In this session, developers, operations leads, architects, and IT managers learn how to leverage AWS Service Catalog and AWS CloudFormation to transform IT culture to maximize the agility, flexibility, and value that the AWS platform provides. Additionally, John Wiley & Sons, a 200-year-old enterprise, demonstrates how AWS Professional Services helped them balance the velocity achieved by moving to AWS with a structured governance model to deploy their cloud infrastructure and application code.
