Aviatrix CloudWAN Deployment with AWS Global Accelerator

In this blog post I explained what Aviatrix CloudWAN solution is. Here let us actually deploy it and appreciate the simplicity of implementation.

Recently I worked with an enterprise (lets call is netJoints Inc., as I cannot share the actual name of my customer) and connected their branches (Cisco Routers) in various regions to Aviatrix Global Transit Network.

I will show how to connect a branch in Singapore.

Step1 – Register Cisco Router to Aviatrix Controller

Step2 – Attach Cisco Router to Public Cloud Transit

In this step Aviatrix Controller will automatically builds IPSec tunnel to connect branch router in Singapore to Public Cloud Transit Network. This Transit network could be

1- Aviatrix Transit GW (AVX-TGW)
2- AWS Transit GW (AWS-TGW)

AVX-TGW is preferred option as it allows to build a true Global Transit across multiple-regions and multiple-clouds. AWS-TGW is limited to only single region and obviously is only available in AWS, hence is not recommended for enterprise multi-cloud customers.

Prepare to attach:

Attach to cloud now:
