VMware Cloud on AWS with Transit Gateway Demo

VMware Cloud on AWS with Transit Gateway Demo

This post was originally published on this site —At AWS re:Invent 2018 last November, AWS introduced a regional construct called Transit Gateway (TGW).

TGW can be seen as a hub and all the VPCs can be seen as spokes in a hub and spoke-type model; any-to-any communication is made possible by traversing the TGW. TGW can replace the popular AWS Transit VPC design many customers have deployed prior for connecting multiple Virtual Private Clouds (VPCs) Read more […]
