Recently AWS announced the general availability of its Cloud WAN solution allowing enterprises to set up and manage a complete WAN environment from a single cloud-based console.

AWS Cloud WAN, which has been in preview since last year, is a cloud-based managed WAN service that will enable enterprises to bring together their entire network of on-premises data centers, branch offices, and cloud infrastructure in one global network.

With the solution, enterprises no longer have to set up various overarching networks to bring all their network environments together – which often leads to a great network complexity of different networks, each of which has a specific task, such as connectivity, security, and monitoring. They can now build, manage, and monitor a so-called “unified global network” more quickly and efficiently by connecting to various AWS cloud environments and regions, as well as Local Zones and AWS Outposts environments located in customers’ on-premises data centers.

Furthermore, the solution also integrates with various third-party SD-WAN environments such as the SD-WAN solutions and services from HPE Aruba, Aviatrix, Checkpoint, Cisco Meraki, Cisco, Prosimo, and VMware.

The central console allows administrators to use the service to assign policies and monitor the health status of the global cloud-based WAN environment. Furthermore, they can also automate configuration and security tasks via the console, for example, by routing network traffic from offices through a dedicated firewall before it reaches cloud-based resources in an AWS region.

The cost of AWS Cloud WAN is based on usage. Four factors determine what customers pay: the number of Core Network Edges (CNEs) deployed, the number of connections to these CNEs, the number of Transit Gateways peered with the CNEs, and the data handling of traffic.

Lastly, the AWS Cloud WAN service is available in AWS regions across the US, Asia Pacific, Europe, Canada, Cape Town, Africa, and Bahrain in the Middle East.
