Simplifying Hybrid Cloud Adoption with AWS

By: Frankie Costa Negro

Overview of this book

The hybrid edge specialty is often misunderstood because it began with an on-premises-focused view encompassing everything not running inside the traditional data center. If you too have workloads that need to live on premises and need a solution to bridge the gap between both worlds, this book will show you how AWS Outposts allows workloads to leverage the benefits of the cloud running on top of AWS technology. In this book, you’ll learn what the Edge space is, the capabilities to look for when selecting a solution to operate in this realm, and how AWS Outposts delivers. The use cases for Outposts are thoroughly explained and the physical characteristics are detailed alongside the service logical constructs and facility requirements. You’ll gain a comprehensive understanding of the sales process—from order placement to rack delivery to your location. As you advance, you’ll explore how AWS Outposts works in real life with step-by-step examples using AWS CLI and AWS Console before concluding your journey with an extensive overview of security and business continuity for maximizing the value delivered by the product. By the end of this book, you’ll be able to create compelling hybrid architectures, solve complex use cases for hybrid scenarios, and get ready for your way forward with the help of expert guidance.

Security Aspects in Outposts

We finally had our hands-on session accessing the AWS Management Console to see the Outposts rack in action and we have established that AWS delivers on its promise to create an offering that operates as an extension of AWS in your data center.

If you have already invested in becoming an AWS professional, mastering the concepts of AWS Outposts will be smooth. However, if you are new to AWS, you will realize that AWS gives you the power to create apps operating at a massive scale for global deployment.

When operating within the confines of an AWS Region, you can rely on AWS to provide security. In this chapter, though, you will learn about the various aspects of AWS security when AWS Outposts is running in your data center.

The following topics will be covered in this chapter:

  • AWS capabilities and data protection in Outposts
  • IAM in Outposts
  • The physical security of Outposts
  • Resiliency and compliance
