Expand Your Datacenter to Amazon Cloud
So, far in AWS, we have provided new services to “expand our cloud offering”. Today, with the introduction of Amazon VPC, we allow our customers to expand their datacenter to the cloud by providing a secure and seamless bridge to AWS cloud.
As Werner mentions in his post, one of the significant challenges for enterprise in moving to cloud is: how to integrate applications running in the cloud into his existing management frameworks.
To put it in a simpler way, traditionally CIOs had to plan “move to cloud” initiatives as a major project as they cannot reuse their existing software management for their EC2 instances. With the introduction of Amazon VPC the bar becomes very low.
Amazon VPC enables enterprises to connect their existing infrastructure to a set of isolated AWS compute resources via a Virtual Private Network (VPN) connection, and to extend their existing management capabilities such as security services, firewalls, and intrusion detection systems to include their AWS resources.
We are really proud to launch Amazon VPC and believe this is a true milestone in the field of Cloud Computing!
