Cisco SD-WAN Integration with AWS Transit Gateway Connect Raises the Bar for Cloud Scale and Overall performance

Because the SD-WAN enterprise clients increase their usage of business-critical applications from cloud or directly as SaaS on the internet, there exists a growing dependence on on-demand SD-WAN extension to the SaaS or cloud of preference.

Cisco has partnered with AWS, to provide Cisco SD-WAN Cloud OnRamp to increase our SD-WAN material to AWS workloads.

As our customers changeover their workloads to AWS, Cisco continues to create with this partnership to accelerate our customer’s SD-WAN journey to AWS.

Inside our current integrated solution between Cisco AWS and SD-WAN Transit Gateway, Cisco SD-WAN Cloud OnRamp allows users to connect with their AWS workloads utilizing the Cisco SD-WAN controller(vManage). The Cloud OnRamp function automates Cisco SD-WAN material expansion from branch routers to Amazon VPCs. Furthermore, the integration with TGW System Manager allows seamless network visibility either through AWS or vManage console. This provides a thorough look at of the on-premises system, like the WAN, and the customer’s AWS system. All underlying duties such as for example spinning up Cisco SD-WAN cloud routers, such as for example Catalyst 8000V Edge Software program, generating Transit VPC, and establishing IPsec VPN tunnels to AWS TGW and forming BGP adjacency are usually completely automated. Furthermore, customers can extend system segmentation guidelines from on-premises to AWS Cloud with a simple-to-create use of GUI in Cloud OnRamp.

The prevailing solution with Cloud OnRamp automates the complete orchestration of the VPC and TGW networking, reducing the time-consuming guide task to moments hence.

We have built-in further with AWS upon our present solution, for clients requiring throughputs more than the 1.today with an IPsec tunnel link 25 Gbps that is possible, and preferring never to manage establishing several tunnels to level bandwidth beyond 1.25Gbps. Although some some other clients have security/compliance factors and have to establish personal IP addresses across the entire route from branch to AWS.

In reaction to our customer specifications, we are thrilled to announce our newest integration of Cisco SD-WAN Cloud OnRamp with AWS Transit Gateway Connect.

This latest offering with AWS Transit Gateway Connect, builds upon our existing AWS relationship to supply a integrated solution with additional key benefits tightly, like:

  1. Reduced costs with increased bandwidth connections: The brand new integration between Cisco and AWS utilizes native GRE tunnels rather than IPsec tunnels, offering around 4 periods the bandwidth and getting rid of the challenges and expenses of establishing and sustaining a variety of IPsec tunnels.
  2. Enhanced safety: By removing the necessity for open public IP addresses, customers along with strict security requirements may deploy the answer using personal IP addresses to significantly decrease the attack surface area reducing risk and streamlining compliance.
  3. Increased path limit: This brand new architecture will increase the amount of BGP system advertised routes many-fold on the existing 100 route restrict. **
  4. Increased visibility: Integration with Transit Gateway Network Supervisor provides an increased degree of visibility such as efficiency metrics and telemetry information not merely from the third-party home appliances but additionally from the branch devices sitting behind them. This enables customers to monitor end-to-end network across on-premises and AWS. ***

“AWS has been functioning closely with Cisco to supply a cloud native method for clients to seamlessly onboard Cisco SD-WAN to AWS. The most recent start with AWS Transit Gateway Connect allows Cisco SD-WAN to significantly enhance throughput around 20x. Customers can start using a single orchestration system from Cisco SD-WAN to take AWS workloads across areas worldwide and extend business segmentation plans into AWS,” mentioned Mayumi Hiramatsu, Vice President, Amazon EC2 Networking.

Our recently enhanced solution with Catalyst 8000V cloud router seeks to handle evolving customer demands because they expand their presence within AWS. Every product is really a journey rather than a destination just. We anticipate ongoing our collaboration with AWS and enhancing our integration as time passes, while seeking your valuable comments always.
