Abstract

Amazon Web Services (AWS) customers often rely on hundreds of accounts and virtual private clouds (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 facilities to VPC connectivity.

This whitepaper describes best practices for creating scalable and secure network architectures in a large network using AWS services such as Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC), AWS Transit Gateway, AWS PrivateLink, AWS Direct Connect, Gateway Load Balancer, AWS Network Firewall, and Amazon Route 53. It demonstrates solutions for managing growing infrastructure—ensuring scalability, high availability, and security while keeping overhead costs low.
