Amazon Announces: Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC)

Amazon Announces: Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC)

The global rollout of Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC) plus new enterprise capabilities for dedicated networking and identity management. These new capabilities are designed to support the security, network management, dedicated connectivity and access control requirements of enterprises when deploying mission critical applications in the cloud.

Amazon Virtual Private Cloud is now out of beta and is generally available in multiple Availability Zones in all AWS Regions (US East, US West, EU, Singapore, and Tokyo.) Using Amazon VPC, you can provision a private section of the AWS cloud where you can a create virtual network that you control, including selection of IP address range, creation of subnets, and configuration or route tables and network gateways. You can connect your Amazon VPC directly to the Internet while also extending your corporate data center to the cloud using encrypted VPN connections.

With today’s global rollout of Amazon VPC, you can:

* Provision multiple VPCs to support different use cases, for example, a production network, a staging network, and a development and test network.
* Launch Amazon EC2 instances into subnets in different Availability Zones to protect applications from failure of a single location
* Connect branch office locations to each other and to your Amazon VPC via encrypted VPN tunnels.

In addition, this rollout also includes support for Windows Server 2008 R2 and for Windows SQL Server Reserved Instances in Amazon VPC. To get started using Amazon VPC, visit http://aws.amazon.com/vpc.

Amazon Direct Connect, also announced today, is a new service that enables you to bypass the Internet and deliver data to and from AWS via a private network connection. With a private connection, you can reduce networking latency and costs, and provide a more consistent network experience when moving data between AWS and your datacenters. With pay-as-you-go pricing and no minimum commitment, you pay only for the network ports used and the data transferred out from AWS over the private connection.

AWS Direct Connect works with all AWS services and is available today for the US-East (Virginia) Region. Additional locations are planned for San Francisco Bay Area (San Jose), Los Angeles, Tokyo, and Singapore in the next several months. To get started using AWS Direct Connect, visit http://aws.amazon.com/directconnect.

AWS has also added new functionality for AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) that enables “identity federation,” or the ability for you to use your existing corporate identities to grant secure and direct access to AWS resources without creating a new AWS identity for those users. This capability enables you to programmatically request security credentials, with configurable expiration and permissions, that grant your corporate identities access to AWS resources controlled by your business.
