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 Internet Services

IBM Cloud Internet Services is the best solution to provide security for your applications if you plan to integrate your applications with IBM Watson Services such as the Natural Language Classifier, Text-to-Speech, Speech-to-Text, Watson Assistant etc. These services are very easy to integrate and manage through IBM Cloud, and in turn, have out-of-the-box configurations for security provided by IBM Cloud Internet Services. It is not the best security solution to use if your applications are running on other cloud infrastructure providers' platforms

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.

  • Request proxying is done by way of DNS name resolution, which is inflexible.
  • Proxy services do not work on wildcard DNS entries.

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.

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.
