If you are part of a CloudOps team or a cloud network engineer, you probably receive daily tickets from developers that look something like this: My instance suddenly cannot “ssh” into this server. Is something wrong with the network? Please help resolve. I get my instance up and running, but it cannot access the Internet. Is something wrong with the network? Please help resolve. No one can access my application. Is something wrong with the network? Please help resolve. …. You get the idea. For any connectivity problem, the network is always the first to be blamed.

The Aviatrix AWS Global Transit Solution has been published on the AWS Answer page as a partner solution.

Aviatrix has received some nice kudos in a report from the Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) industry analysts. The just-released ESG Lab report validates the business value to enterprises of integrating Aviatrix cloud connectivity software with Amazon Web Services (AWS).
