Cloud Networking Workshop

4 hours
Many organizations have cloud initiatives or a desire to get out of the data center business. To achieve these goals, you need a foundational understanding of the networking constructs that will become the on-ramp to your cloud experience, as well as a networking plan that provides an optimal platform to execute your cloud initiatives.

What to Expect

Work with WWT experts to compare and contrast the various cloud provider networking constructs. In this workshop we'll cover the following:
  • Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform and AWS overview
  • Utilizing third-party virtual appliances in your cloud networks
  • Benefits of using a carrier neutral facility in your architecture
  • How to leverage network function virtualization (NFV) in your designs

Goals & Objectives

Our Cloud Networking Workshop is a strategic discussion focused on helping you understand the aspects of connecting securely to the cloud and connectivity within the cloud. There are numerous ways to set up connections to the cloud depending on the provider you are using and the goals you are trying to achieve. High availability, dedicated bandwidth, redundancy, cost and security are some of the considerations in connecting to the cloud. All of these connectivity decisions will impact your design; they will also affect the cost and efficiency of the resulting product.


Participants will leave with an understanding of available options for connecting locations to the cloud, the unique challenges of combining multiple clouds into their connectivity, how to optimize connectivity to the cloud and how to design for availability zones and fault domains.
