Aviatrix has announced Aviatrix CloudWAN, a program that embraces native cloud services from Amazon Web Services (AWS), including the new AWS Transit Gateway Network Manager, and extends Aviatrix’s intelligent orchestration and control to existing Cisco IOS branch office routers.
AWS Transit Gateway Network Manager enables customers to manage and monitor connectivity between AWS and their on-premises locations from a single console within AWS.
Aviatrix CloudWAN uses the customer’s Aviatrix cloud-native network controller—centralized orchestration and control for cloud networking—to reach the customer’s existing Cisco IOS branch routers and directly reconfigure virtual private network (VPN) settings and border gateway protocol Gateway Protocol (BGP) routes to point to AWS and leverage AWS Global Accelerator, enabling optimal path and lowest latency routing to applications running on AWS.
The Aviatrix controller has full knowledge of the customer’s AWS environment and configures branch office routers to direct traffic over the optimal path to applications on AWS. Customers leverage existing Cisco branch office routers without requiring expensive upgrades to hardware or software. Combined with multiple internet (Tier-1 or broadband) connections, customers quickly enable a highly available, optimally routed multi-site-to-cloud solution.
Aviatrix’s cloud-native networking architecture embraces and extends AWS native constructs and services—delivering the agility and simplicity of the cloud through Aviatrix’s CloudCore, Cloud Access and now CloudWAN Services. For example, Aviatrix CloudWAN embraces both AWS Global Accelerator and API integration with the new AWS Transit Gateway Network Manager. Doing so extends AWS’s native capabilities by intelligently configuring on-premise Cisco IOS branch office routers to take full advantage of these services.
