Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC)

If you are going to deploy within AWS, you need to know how to leverage VPCs. VPCs have several items you must configure for them to be usable and to even link one VPC to another. If you are only going to deploy a few resources or use some of the default configurations, you still need to have working knowledge of how a VPC functions. If you are used to working with VLANs and the ideology behind those, that is the best direct reference to how a VPC can be described, but with additional layers on top of that with route tables, internet gateways, etc.

IBM Cloud File Storage

IBM Cloud File Storage is well suited if you have a fairly large organization that needs an effective way to store your information and files where it can be accessed anywhere as long as your employees have a stable internet connection. Where it is less appropriate is that you're not able to access any of the information if you don't have access to the internet.

Cons

Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC)

  • The biggest issue with VPC networks is knowing how you can leverage VPC endpoints to ensure your resources within the VPC are not reaching out over the Internet to get to AWS services such as S3 and others.

Alternatives Considered

Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC)

We utilize both AWS and Azure resources for our cloud deployments. The deployment of resources initially was smoother through AWS VPC due to their powerful CLI and Powershell cmdlets. In the past couple of years, the differences between some of the features of AWS VPC and Azure Vnet have diminished. However, the ease of putting things together in a logical flow still belongs in my opinion to AWS.

My company also uses Citrix for academic course purposes. But we are in the service sector, Citrix was not appropriate and also slower. Our purpose has been well served by the features of IBM Cloud File Storage such as great capacity, and faster and safer tech

Return on Investment

Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC)

  • AWS VPCs are actively used for following various compliance and regulatory needs such as network separation for PCI DSS. The ability to keep resources and access to those resources controlled through the initial steps of creating VPCs has helped tremendously.
