The Aviatrix AWS Global Transit Solution has been published on the AWS Answer page as a partner solution. Since then we are often asked by customers why they should consider the Aviatrix solution, and for that matter, why they should consider Aviatrix over all other virtual appliance-based solutions. This article tries to answer some of the questions. 1. Who should use the Aviatrix solution? If you are not a CCIE with domain expertise in VRF, BGP and IPSEC, you should not consider the CSR-based solution. While the CloudFormation and Lambda scripts make it easy to set up, you wouldn’t know…




Multicloud Adoption: Is Your Cloud Connectivity an Enabler or an Obstacle?

In its 2015 research report “The Future of the Data Center in the Cloud Era,” Gartner asserted that “a multicloud strategy will become the common strategy for 70% of enterprises by 2019.” And in its “2018 Planning Guide for Cloud Computing,” Gartner predicts that “multicloud will become the de facto standard.” First, let’s clarify what we mean by ‘multicloud,’ because the term is used in many different ways. Some people use multicloud to mean the use of two or more cloud computing services of any kind, including private clouds. But the industry seems to be settling on defining multicloud as…




Are your Ops tools encrypted?

We recently did a survey on popular DevOps tools and discovered some normal stuff — most of them are client server based; also learned something new — most of them are not encrypted. Tools like Chef, Puppet, Jenkins, etc, where data packets between client and server travel in clear text. Typically in a cloud deployment, there is a shared service VPC or management VPC where DevOps tools are deployed. Application instances are hosted in spoke VPCs. Most of the application images have agents installed, enabling them to be managed by servers residing in the management VPC. DevOps tools, either for build, configuration or test,…

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). The small irony is that the ESG Lab Review report is all about SD-WAN integration with AWS—and we’re not even an SD-WAN company! But our comprehensive cloud connectivity solution includes the SD-WAN capability of establishing encrypted connections between an enterprise’s datacenter or sites with AWS. Because Aviatrix is able to deliver this same capability as SD-WAN vendors, AWS requested that we…

Cloud Migration is Complex with Uncertainty If you take a look at AWS guide to enterprise on how to migrate on-prem VMs to cloud since 2014, you’ll find the workflow is getting more complex each year and the task more daunting. The Current Migration Process Before getting started, you need first to run some inventory tool to scan what VMs and their operating systems are in your organization, then use dependency tool to map dependencies between VMs or Apps on these VMs. The dependency map quickly turns into a spider web as apps need database and need other apps to…




An Architectural Evolution for Networking in the Public Cloud

As cloud technologies evolve, so do the requirements for cloud networking. Now, it’s time for an entirely new architecture for networking in the public cloud. The Shared Service Architecture for DevOps Consider the evolution of Amazon Web Services (AWS). In 2006, AWS started with EC2 Classic where there was not much networking to do: an EC2 instance either has a public IP address or a 10.0.0.0/8 network. Later in 2009, AWS introduced Virtual Private Cloud (VPC). Nowadays you cannot launch an EC2 instance without specifying which region, VPC, and subnet the EC2 instance will be deployed on. You can think…

In the previous blog, my teammate Jorge outlined the How-to of Transit VPC on AWS. Many of our prospects, partners and customers asked us – Why do you need Transit VPC in AWS and how does it connect with the global transit network in play? Before we get into the details, does your company use Amazon Web Services (AWS) for cloud infrastructure and also need to connect multiple cloud networks across the globe? Or maybe you want to implement a hybrid network architecture, or you have rigorous worldwide security or compliance programs in place? If you answered, ‘yes’ to any…




Transit VPC — Management and Troubleshooting

We have recently heard from many customers that the Transit VPC architecture is hard to manage and troubleshoot. On one hand, there is the management of the third-party software at the hub and Amazon’s VGW from every spoke. On the other hand, there is the troubleshooting of multiple software, vendors, routing tables and lack of visibility overall. And on top of that, as cloud adoption increases, customer are now dealing with tens or hundreds of tunnels between all their VPCs, manual and complex solutions are not the right approach. This blog only discusses the hub and spoke architecture, the full mesh architecture…

As enterprises move more of their applications to both public and private clouds, it’s becoming impossible to ignore the friction involved in hybrid cloud management. Until now, hybrid cloud management has meant slow, error-prone manual provisioning; expensive operations and scaling; and highly skilled networking experts for even the simplest change requests.

To ease this friction, Nutanix and Aviatrix announced a joint solution at Nutanix .NEXT 2017 that aims to reboot the hybrid cloud. Nutanix customers can now have the one-click power of Aviatrix Cloud InterConnect (ACX) from inside Nutanix Calm, and can create an integrated hybrid cloud fabric across their private data centers and Amazon AWS in minutes, with a click of a button! Thanks to the one-click power of Aviatrix Cloud InterConnect (ACX) software, Nutanix customers can now enjoy seamless networking across their entire hybrid cloud infrastructure!
