Learn the basics of AWS cloud networking.
- [Instructor] So now let's get into this particular cloud networking services, and we're gonna start with Amazon Web Services. So, what's important here is that if you leverage AWS, you're likely to leverage these networking services really as part of your overall networking system that's going to access the resources that Amazon provides. Keep in mind that they are, unto themselves, not a network; as we talked about prior. Ultimately, this is about a few tactical network resources that align with some of the resources or cloud services that the public cloud provider provides.
In this case, Amazon Web Services. Keep in mind you're integrating these services with internal and AWS resources. So, this is about you leveraging these services, but figuring in how they work and play well with existing native Amazon Services, cloud services. As well as how they work and play well with your internal resources. So, VPS is your own private cloud. So ultimately this, as we mention previously, is functionally a private cloud for you, but it actually is hosted on AWS.
And so we have a secure line, which is encrypted pipe that exists between the on-premise systems. And the AWS virtual servers that we're leveraging on Amazon Web Services. And by doing that, we're in essence simulating a private cloud because no one else is able to leverage it. But, ultimately, since it's on the cloud it's gonna be a little bit more cost effective than if it was on-premise. And there's no private cloud instance of AWS. CloudFront, another AWS service. A global content delivery network, CDN, that accelerates delivery of your websites.
So, ultimately, if you're leveraging a CDN this is a contender. There are other ones out there you're able to leverage that work just as well. But, if you're working directly from Amazon, out to your website you're looking for an automated mechanism to deliver content out to those websites, this is an option. So Direct Connect allows you to establish private connectivity between AWS and your data center by using a dedicated network connection. And then Load Balancing, the ability to balance loads leveraging the network to push processes between compute instances and storage instances as you need to to allow AWS to provide better reliability and better performance because we're leveraging resources in a balanced way.
So VPC communicates with the user, application, and the device. So, ultimately, if I'm on premise, I may have a device that communicates to the VPC, my virtual private cloud, an application that communicates to the VPC, and the users that may want to leverage those applications directly. And so the VPC for all practical purposes, is a private cloud that sits within a public cloud. So we use it just like any other private cloud. CloudFront, website, website, website, website, website. So, ultimately, this is about content distribution whether you're distributing from a single source to multiple websites, or several sources to multiple website, this provides the capability of managing a CDN for you which is delivered through AWS.
