Abstract

AWS customers often rely on hundreds of accounts and VPCs to segment their workloads and expand their footprint. This level of scale often creates challenges around resource sharing, inter-VPC connectivity, and on-premises to VPC connectivity.

This whitepaper describes best practices for creating scalable and secure network architectures in a large network using AWS services like Amazon VPC, AWS Transit Gateway, AWS PrivateLink, and AWS Direct Connect Gateway. It demonstrates solutions for managing growing infrastructure — ensuring scalability, high availability, and security while keeping overhead costs low.
