Traditional networking engineers entering the world of Amazon Web Services for the first time often feel like Alice in Wonderland. Everything looks and sounds familiar, and yet it all feels a bit different – ACLs sit in front of servers instead of on a router, there is no router, NAT happens somewhere behind the scenes, each subnet has its own routing table…

This workshop will help demystify the networking aspects of Amazon Web Services. We’ll start with the high-level concepts, cover security aspects, and conclude with inter-VPC routing and hybrid cloud implementations.

Topics covered
High-level concepts

  • Private and public addressing
  • VPC and subnets
  • Packet forwarding in AWS
  • Internet access and elastic load balancing
  • Related AWS services
  • Provisioning and orchestration


  • Internal and external addresses
  • Multiple IP addresses per VM instance
  • Elastic (floating) IP addresses
  • Using IPv6 in AWS


  • Security groups
  • Network ACLs

Beyond a single VPC

  • VPC peering
  • Building hybrid clouds

Who should attend
This workshop targets architects and designers who are planning, designing or building networking infrastructure within Amazon Web Services, or connecting AWS workloads with on-premises data centers.

It will also help server, virtualization, security and networking engineers understand the advantages and limitations of AWS Virtual Private Cloud and Elastic Load Balancing.
