Advanced Architectures with AWS Transit Gateway

Advanced Architectures with AWS Transit Gateway

In this session, we discuss the need for AWS Transit Gateway, dive into common use cases, and discuss reference architectures. The session will prepare you with the fundamentals to understand AWS Transit Gateway operations and create advanced architectures. Learn how AWS Transit Gateway interacts with other services, like Amazon Route 53 Resolver and AWS PrivateLink, to provide enterprise scale service in large operating environments.

  1. This presenter is EXTREMELY organized and easy to follow. I’ve found a small mistake in his presentation at 18:30. His VPC is defined as So far so good. But then he uses the following example…’I have a host that wants to communicate with an on-premises host 172.x.x.x’. Anyone? Anyone? The is reserved for the router. And just to be crystal clear – I think this presenter is FAR FAR more knowledgeable about AWS networking than me. I’m under no illusion.

  2. Does Amazon ECS service discovery work with this Centralized private link with Hybrid cloud architecture reference in this video ?

    Could you share us more details how it works with conjunction with shared service VPC hosting all private hosted zones and R53 DNS resolver endpoints setup ?

  3. Hi Alan, I'd also like to get some more details regarding how exactly the Transit GW Routing Domains share routes with each other? For instance, you have your two VPC's connected to a VPC Route Domain, and then an outbound route domain, did those prefixes have to be manually created or is there a way to have automatic propagation with an approval review process?

  4. Dear Alan, thanks very much for the excellent explanation of Transit Gateway. However, I have two questions:
    1. when you mentioned about the blackhole rule, I think there is a pre-requisite that the SNAT instance is single-nic. In a typical NAT setup, you would have traffic flowing from inside to outside. because both source and destination reside behind inside, the SNAT instance should return the traffic without NAT.
    2. could you please explain more about the Availability Zone affinity rule for Transit Gateway? For example, if one VPC attaches with two subnets in two AZs, and the other VPC attaches with three subnets in three AZs, what would happen to/from traffic from the third AZ?
