AWS has made its Cloud WAN solution now generally available, enabling businesses to set up and operate a whole WAN system from a solitary cloud-based panel.
AWS Cloud WAN, which has been available in preview since last year, is a cloud-based managed WAN service that will allow businesses to integrate all their on-premises data centers, branch offices, and cloud infrastructure into a single global network.
David Brown, vice president of Amazon EC2 at AWS, commented, “As the edge of the cloud continues to be pushed outward, and more customers move their applications to AWS to become more agile, reduce complexity, and save money, they need an easier way to evolve their networks to support a modern, distributed model that allows them to reach their customers and end users globally with high performance. With AWS Cloud WAN, enterprises can simplify their operations and leave the time-consuming task of managing complex webs of networks behind.”
The approach eliminates the need for businesses to create numerous overarching networks to connect all their network settings, which frequently results in a complicated network of separate networks, each of which has a specialized function, such as connectivity, security, and monitoring. They can now connect to different AWS cloud environments and regions, as well as Local Zones and AWS Outposts environments located in customers’ on-premises data centers, more quickly and effectively. This allows them to build, manage, and monitor a so-called “unified global network” more quickly and effectively.
Additionally, the solution connects with SD-WAN environments from third parties, including those from HPE Aruba, Aviatrix, Checkpoint, Cisco Meraki, Cisco, Prosimo, and VMware.
Administrators can use the service’s central console to assign policies and keep track of the WAN environment’s overall health. Additionally, through the panel, they may automate setup and security operations, for instance, by sending network traffic from offices through a specialized firewall before it accesses cloud resources in an AWS region.
