Advanced networking on Amazon Web Services videoDec 22, 2016 · 1 minute read · Comments
Watching talks like this one from AWS reInvent 2016 makes me an even bigger fan of public clouds than I already am. It starts with a simple VPC setup and scales out to a multi-region network setup using a Direct Connect connection, managed AWS services and a few Cisco EC2 instances.
You can basically create a multi-region network setup as a single engineer running a few templates and connecting a few services. The license costs for the Cisco’s for the lowest bandwidth setup is a whopping $3000 per month, but that’s still peanuts compared to running your own hardware and managing that.
I admit, it’s not a simple setup and you need a deep understanding of networking, infrastructure and application development, but isn’t that a nice goal to achieve? :)
