Networking Services on Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure

Learn about various Networking services and tools on Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure: Amazon VPC, Subnet, Gateway, DNS, Virtual WAN, Traffic Manager, Firewall, Network Security and more

You'll learn:

  • You would be able to create and manage Amazon VPC (Virtual Private Cloud) on AWS
  • You would be able to create and configure Subnets and other network components
  • You could create, attach and detach the Internet Gateway to the VPC
  • In this course we would explore various Network services available on Microsoft Azure cloud.
  • You would learn DNS, Firewall, Traffic Manager, Virtual WAN
  • Vnet (Virtual Network), and NSG ( Network Security Group).

In this course, you are going to learn about various Networking services and tools on Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure. We will start with the various network tools and services that can be managed from Amazon VPC console. Here you will learn about creating a Virtual Private Cloud or VPC on AWS. It is one of the key components of a cloud computing platform. Whenever you want to create a virtual server or create an environment on cloud that is hosted on shared platform, you may want to configure and manage various Network components as if it is an on-premise server. Virtual Private Cloud allows you to create, configure and control various networking components such as subnets, routing table, internet gateways and much more. In this course you will be learning some of these tools with hands-on practical examples.

Later on, after you have learned AWS VPC and network components, it would be a great idea to explore some of the networking tools and services available on Microsoft Azure. Thus, you would learn about various networking tools and services on Microsoft Azure. AWS and Azure both are the tech giants in cloud computing space. So, anyone who is looking for a professional career in Cloud Networking should be aware of the underlying capabilities of both of these platforms. You will be learning various cloud services on Azure such as DNS, Virtual WAN, Firewall, Vnet, Traffic Manager and NSG (Network Security Group).

This course would not cover entire cloud services on either of AWS or Azure, but this course would be tightly focused on Networking tools and services on Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure.

Who this course is for:

  •    Anyone who would be interested to learn Cloud Computing with Microsoft Azure and AWS.
  •    Would be interested in learning various Cloud Networking services and options available on Microsoft Azure.
  •    Want to make a career in Cloud Computing and Networking.
  •    Network Engineers and Solution Architects curious about learning Amazon VPC and other networking services on AWS
  •    Students and IT professionals interested in learning various network components on AWS and Azure
  •    Anyone interested in creating and managing Virtual Private Cloud.

In-Depth Guide to Connecting your AWS and Microsoft Azure Virtual Private Networks (VPN)

Let’s say that you have spent the last 2 years developing your enterprise services in either of the two cloud providers and now you decide to start using the other one. A possible scenario that would bring about such a requirement could be a migration from one cloud service provided to the other.

Or maybe you’ve heard about that brand new AWS or Azure service that is not available in the competing provider and you want to integrate it into your workflow no matter what.

Another scenario could be if you would like to combine services between the providers, but still keep everything behind your well protected and highly secure private network gateway. For all of the above cases, you should consider establishing a secure link between your two private networks. There is a variety of options available to achieve that, but probably the most straightforward is to connect your AWS VPC with the Azure Virtual Network using a VPN Gateway and site-to-site connectivity.

Underlying infrastructure

This guide assumes that you have already setup correctly the following resources in the cloud providers:

  1. AWS VPC with a public and private subnet (default configuration)
  2. Azure Virtual Network
  3. Azure Virtual Network Gateway

If you haven’t yet created any of the previous resources, you may use the service provider’s documentation guides to do that.

For AWS VPC use this: https://docs.aws.amazon.com/vpc/latest/userguide/working-with-vpcs.html#Create-VPC

For Azure Virtual Network and VPN Gateway use this: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/vpn-gateway/create-routebased-vpn-gateway-portal

Note down the IP address range for each one of your cloud networks, you will need it later when setting up the routing table.

You can find AWS VPC network range if you open the VPC service under the Networking & Content Delivery category. Then from “Your VPCs” you can check the IPv4 CIDR column in screen 1. In our depicted example you can see that the IP range is

How to Upload to Amazon S3 via AWS CLI and NPM scripts

Static websites are a brilliant way to create performant sites. My website is built using Gatsby and hosted on Amazon S3. I have created a simple script to help you quickly upload your site to S3 by running one simple command in your project terminal.


Before we start, you must ensure that you have completed the following:

  • Install AWS CLI (Amazon Web Services Command Line Interface) on your machine.
  • Create a bucket in Amazon S3 (this is where we will be uploading our project files to).

This guide assumes that you have some familiarity navigating the AWS Console and each Amazon Web Service.

An Introduction to Infrastructures for WEB projects in AWS

Let’s review a particular project in detail and the cost of infrastructure maintenance. And so, we have an internal WEB application that consists of a static website on React, a backend on Go, and a database DynamoDB. All code is stored on Github and for CI/CD we use Github Actions. The infrastructure code is defined in Terraform.


All traffic from clients is received by CloudFront, which acts as a CDN. With it, we can increase page load speed and reduce the load on the backend and frontend by requests caching.

Further, depending on the requested prefix (all except /api/* goes to the frontend part) requests go to S3 or ALB. S3 has the functionality to serve static websites, so it is fully suitable for this task, it is also possible to implement different types of routing depending on the requests.

At ALB, we authorize clients using AWS Cognito, which has extensive functionality for working with different types of authorization and registration.

Important note: when using the ALB+CloudFront bunch, remember to close your balancers (so that traffic can only go through CloudFront), as this will help you avoid problems with direct attacks on the balancer (DDoS). And for more protection, use WAF and Shield services.

And later we transfer the execution request to AWS ECS (Fargate) cluster. Thanks to this, we get autoscaling basically from the box, the ability to configure access to other resources (IAM), logs and metrics (sent to CloudWatch), and much more.

AWS Docker registry stores Docker images which will be later used in ECS. Thanks to the image tagging policy as well as the image rotation, we have achieved efficient and easy work during deploys and troubleshooting sessions.

AWS vs. Azure: Key Differences and Business Benefits

The Big Three, Amazon, Azure, and Google, are driving the cloud computing market. The variety of opportunities they offer to businesses is endless which makes the decision even more difficult — which cloud will benefit my business the most?

In 2019,  Canalys reported that 32.4% of the market preferred AWS to its competitors. However, there is a very curious ‘but’ — the annual growth in Azure is twice as high as in AWS.

Does this mean that more and more enterprises find Azure more effective than Amazon? Why? Is Azure going to outrun AWS soon? Let’s see.
