Amazon’s Virtual Private Cloud

Posted on 8.25.2009

Amazon Web Services launched Amazon VPC, a bridge between a company’s existing IT infrastructures and the AWS cloud.

Amazon VPC (which integrates today with Amazon EC2) enables companies to connect their infrastructure to a set of isolated AWS compute resources via a virtual private network (VPN) connection, extending management capabilities such as security services, firewalls, and intrusion detection systems to include their AWS resouces.

“For the last three years, AWS has provided companies of all sizes with on-demand, highly elastic and highly reliable technology resources in the cloud. As more and more enterprises leverage the cloud, they want a simple, seamless way to migrate their large and complex IT infrastructures to AWS, and to use the security and management controls that their IT teams already know,” said Andy Jassy, Senior Vice President, Amazon Web Services. “We built Amazon VPC for this purpose—to allow any company to seamlessly connect their existing resources to the AWS cloud as if it were a part of their own datacenter.”
