"Amazon VPC is a great resource to leverage"

What do you like best?

With Amazon VPC, network segmentation becomes a reality, increasing the security posture of your cloud-native apps, with easy-to-use security groups (Firewalls) to monitor access between VPCs. Amazon has done a great job enabling organizations to have a good, Defense in Depth security posture with the introduction of VPCs.

What do you dislike?

There's nothing that I can think of that I dislike about Amazon VPCs. It's been extremely helpful in offering more secure ways for developers to build cloud apps.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're looking into using Amazon VPC, get yourself comfortable with Security groups, IAM, and Security Roles. These will be extremely helpful to know when setting up VPC.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

One specific example that this offers is the ability to have Amazon Lambdas run inside a VPC, so a Lambda can access an RDS instance that lies within the "Data" VPC.

"VPC is the most important feature of AWS"

What do you like best?

VPC has given us significantly more adaptability to make secure administrations facilitated on AWS by taking into consideration inner systems that are accessible just to us. The interface is generally basic and you don't should be a Citrix ensured designer to make your own surroundings. It gives you a chance to have a protected virtual cloud on AWS.

What do you dislike?

Some components like VPC stream logs are not yet upheld by CloudFormation. I'd lean toward that to be least 5 in order to get more subtle elements from the basic VPC assets. This may be the greatest weakness if IPv6 backing is required. I've been a client since they initially dispatched VPC, and it was hard to comprehend and use to start with. Some of the phrasing utilized all through the administrator interface is somewhat dark, and the relationship among various administrations could be made clearer;

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Overall, our needs were catered to. It gives numerous layers of securities and agreeable setups. particularly for system security, while conversing with our client or proposing our clients to move from existing system to cloud, we stick point the VPC security and its straightforwardness highlights. Lots of our stuff does not should be web confronting and VPC is ideal for that.

"VPC - your personal private cloud"

What do you like best?

Virtual Private Cloud allow you to create dedicated, fully separated environments with it's own network. Most important features are: NACL - firewall on Subnet level, EIP - routable IP on demand, ability to chose between NAT instance, NAT gateway and internet gateway, easily accessible route tables and vpc peering which allow you to connect with other VPC (you need to have different IPv4 CIDR block in each of connected VPC ).

What do you dislike?

Lack of tagging for EIP, it would be nice if NACL were stateful not stateless, lack of Layer 2 and build in network debugging tools.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You can't create big, secure environment in AWS without it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Production, staging and DR environment separation.

"Amazon VPC is the first thing to setup when starting your AWS journey"

What do you like best?

Amazon VPC stands for Virtual Private Cloud, it's a great product by Amazon that enables us to secure the perimeter for other services. It is the first thing to setup when starting your AWS journey, before even starting EC2 instances. The use of VPC enabled us to isolate our servers (app servers, database servers, queues, etc.) and have control on the networking environment inside each VPC and in between VPCs. This was possible through the use of private subnets that can only be used inside VPCs and make the machines running inside them not accessible to outsiders (i.e. free extra security layer). Another great thing about VPC is that it can be coupled with many other Amazon services without exposing your infrastructure to the Internet, e.g. internal loud-balancers, more network interfaces to bound to EC2 instances. In addition, VPC is a free service so why not take benefit from it.

What do you dislike?

Like most AWS services, there is default limit to how many VPC someone can have. For instance, the limit per region is set to 5. Furthermore, we cannot allocate more than 200 subnet inside a given VPC. In addition, some of Amazon services are only accessible through the Internet (e.g. S3, Kinesis, etc.), which means instances inside a VPC can't access them by default and a bastion host may be needed to route traffic between the two worlds.

Recommendations to others considering the product

VPC is one of Amazon service with no cost (it's free) but even when adding extra services (e.g. hardware VPN) the cost remains raisonnable. It provides an extra level of security without having to do any complicated tasks. It should be setup before starting using any other Amazon service.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We used Amazon VPC among other AWS services we developing an IoT gateway for a client. We realised a huge productivity benefit from using Amazon services that made us focus on the business problem and not on tuning the infrastructure. Also, VPC provides a good security for servers running inside it.

"A great service that makes having a physical network a thing of the past"

What do you like best?

Amazon's VPC (Virtual Private Cloud) service gives you the ability to place all of your AWS services onto a private IP range that makes everything appear and operate just as if it is physically in one place, as they are all on the same subnet that no other machines have access to, unless you provide it through your firewall. This greatly enhances management and security, allowing your devices to freely talk to each other without having to focus heavily on security. The VPC services by AWS also give you a wide range of control and customization, allowing you to operate very quickly with basic services, while giving you the capability of using services that perform exactly like firewalls and routers, even letting you set your own custom routes. This is the main service that convinced me to give up working as a conventional network engineer and focus on being a cloud consultant / engineer. AWS also provides a direct connect service, and other options which allow you to integrate your existing physical network to your VPC, allowing them to seamlessly glow together, which lets you move to a cloud based solution much easier.

What do you dislike?

I don't have any dislikes, and I suppose all I can really say here is that more features would be welcomed, but really, every feature needed to accurately mimic a private local area network are available.I suppose the only real downsides would be cost, which can get expensive if you are a larger customer. Another downside is that you get stuck with AWS services for all of your network services, including Routing, Gateways, firewall, VPN, and etc, requiring new & additional training.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The first thing you should do when setting up your first AWS services, which will most likely be with EC2, is to establish a VPC, which is an option in the VPC set-up. This will make sure that you can add new services to your VPC as you expand, rather than having to reconfigure IP settings.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The VPC service allows a company to easily migrate to a low-cost monthly service from a physical network, which requires large upfront costs when upgrading, expanding, or repairing. VPC's let you extend your existing network to the cloud to begin upgrading your server capabilities, without having to take down and redo your entire infrastructure.

"Ok, but not great."

What do you like best?

I really love the fact that with VPC you can have a totally closed network for things like lamdba functions to RDS instances.

What do you dislike?

I setup a VPC with lamdba functions and an API gateway, by default there is no outside internet access. If you setup a NAT gateway, all (non-warm) requests take a minimum of 15 seconds for the VPC to spin up.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend to just read a lot of documentation. It is very easy to get lost in the world of VPC.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We moved from a serverless setup and are now using VPC to hold our Kubernetes clusters. It is very useful for this purpose, as AWS EKS only recently started supporting Kube clusters.

"Amazon keeps moving on up"

What do you like best?

Amazon VPC is pretty cheap for what it gives you. At our company, we do have to use the private feature because of the nature of our work, but it still does the job. Because our internet is fast, the connection works fairly quickly. Clouds are awesome because we can share data across the board.

What do you dislike?

The limitation can sometimes be grating. We have many users in the company, and when we are all on it at the same time, the speed can slow down. We end up having to pay more money in order to make the connection speed faster. When connection issues happen on the weekends, they tend to not get resolved until Monday.

Recommendations to others considering the product

For a first time user, it might take some time to get used to it. Don't be frustrated. Be patient and use FAQs and contact Amazon Support for help whenever needed. They are pretty good about responding to customer concerns.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We like Amazon VPC to share data. We use it in conjunction with other programs. It goes down a lot less than the other programs, which is very helpful. The connection being fast is awesome, for the most part.

"Increase your security with AWS VPC"

What do you like best?

Amazon Virtual Private Cloud is a great way to increase your cloud network by segregating your services.

Amazon VPC increases your security by a lot based on the fact that you can decide for some hosts to not have a public IP at all, or for some to not even be connected to the internet and connected to one of your hosts only.

What do you dislike?

The transition from AWS EC2 Classic to Virtual Private Cloud is not really that straightforward.

There is no way to make a seamless transition within the Amazon Web Services console, you have to launch your servers again inside the VPC(s) and cut over your services one by one.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Read a lot about Amazon VPC before jumping in, understand the consequences and limitations before rushing your decision.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Increasing security, unlocking new features like Security Groups for Load Balancer and more, secure exchange of data between your servers.

"Advanced network configuration capabilities for AWS"

What do you like best?

Amazon VPC allows a complete customization of the network layers underlying AWS services, allowing to configure private OSI Layer 2 VLANs as well as integrating them with your own private VPNs.

What do you dislike?

Some of the terminology used throughout the admin interface is a little obscure, and the relationship among different services could be made clearer; in general, though, most everything is quick to get used to.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're developing advanced apps and have specific requirements for development and production environments, VPC is most definitely for you. If all you need is run a few EC2 instances, you can ignore it, but it'd still do good to your security (especially if these are internet-facing). Besides... it's free.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

VPC is great for us as it allows to keep production environments separate from staging/development, which is at the same time easier to manage and safer; moreover, we can avoid exposing our internal apps to the internet, and keep them accessible through the integration with our own VPN.

"So easy to create a virtual private cloud"

What do you like best?

I really think that you get value for the money you spend. They charge for the VPN associations with the VPC system and the NAT passage utilization. The Flow Logs highlight is the following thing worth saying, it helps in following the movement coming in and escaping our private cloud and thus simple to recognize any open vulnerabilities in the framework

What do you dislike?

Some components like VPC stream logs are not yet upheld by CloudFormation. This may be the greatest weakness if IPv6 backing is required. The Flow logs limit per single system interface, single subnet, or single VPC in an area is 2. I didn't locate any huge deficiency.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The primary advantage for our situation was having the capacity to interface the inner administrations safely and without presenting them to the web, which fortifies the general security of the setup Designing secure systems that associate the greater part of the benefits together without presenting information to the open web. This has helped in giving momentum without bargaining on security.

"Virtual clouding made easy."

What do you like best?

Since it allocates space virtually, literally everything is configurable from DNS, creation of subnets and network gateways. Everything can be put here from backend to front-end. Other best thing is it's more secured than normal EC2 instances that AWS provides.

What do you dislike?

It's not very user friendly, if you've just started using it then don't take it hard on yourself, you might take some time to get a hang of it. And that it's not for free.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If security is something your company is lacking then this tool is a must to try. It might take some time to get a hang of it but it'll show results given enough time.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It's better to have everything connected locally because it gives you faster speed, not every application which is required to be exposed to internet can be made to run in the background which ensures security.

"Necessary complexity for to use AWS"

What do you like best?

Its not really something to like or dislike. Amazon's VPC service is essentially a pre-requisite to use any other AWS services like Ec2 or RDS.

What do you dislike?

Amazon VPC settings can be challenging for even seasoned administrators to fully comprehend. You are really configuring an entire subnetwork (or multiple) as a private cloud – so you can imagine the complexity can get out of hand rather quickly. Unfortunately, you really have to use VPC in order to leverage several other key AWS products.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Again, its not really a choice. You need to use VPC – its essentially a requirement if you're using AWS properly, but read lots and lots of documentation.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"VPC Cloud-based networking"

What do you like best?

VPC (Virtual Private Cloud) is a very simple solution to implement either manually or through the wizard which will configure the network for you automatically, which allows you to create cloud based resources with private IP space.

You assign a CIDR block (typically /16 although configurable) to your VPC and then carve up subnets within that addressable space. Subnets are bound to Availability Zones - that is independent data centers within a particular AWS region. It is just a couple of clicks to create subnets to which your resources can be assigned.

A virtual private gateway can be created with a few mouse clicks to establish a VPN tunnel to your on-prem networks, a NAT gateway can be created to allow your non-public IP based hosts to access the Internet, and finally a Internet gateway can be created to allow hosts with public IPs to accept non-solicited traffic from the Internet

A main route table is created for you that handles all of the inter-subnet routing on your behalf. The only routing you have to manually add is identifying with of the above gateways to send traffic through, e.g. my on-prem network is 192.168.x.x and it should go through my virtual private gateway. All Internet traffic should route through my NAT Gateway, so 0.0.0.0 (default route) should go through here

Extremely simple to implement, can stand all of the networking up in less than 10 minutes

What do you dislike?

There is some layer of abstraction that prevents the network team from having the amount of control they are used to. Keep in mind that AWS is a layer-3 network, and as such some of the familiar layer-2 concepts are no longer in play. Not a dislike per se, but something to be aware of

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is really the only option to use if leveraging EC2 resources. If you have an older account, you may have been set up with an EC2-Classic account, but there would be no reason not to upgrade the older account

All newer accounts using EC2-based prodcuts will automatically launch as EC2-VPC

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have securely migrated some of our production workloads to AWS using a VPC based network

We have only a few externally accessible endpoints to our application, while wishing to expose those to the Internet we wanted to ensure that our back-end systems, databases, etc had no presence on the Internet while allowing our on-premise user base to continue to access those systems for general maintenance and support. Running our systems in a VPC allows us to achieve all of these objectives, while also allowing us to operate separate VPCs for dev/test environments to allow for more network seperation, also a key design goal of ours

"Secured AWS"

What do you like best?

Here you can have multiple instances connected locally for faster operations without even having them exposed to outer world or internet, which makes it much more secured than usual EC2 servers.

What do you dislike?

Some of the services are a bit expensive, in general it'd be nice to have such services at cheaper price. Plus the flow isn't very intuitive, one might have to spend considerable amount of time to understand it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If security breaches is something your company is trying to handle then this is a must try in my opinion. It might be little bit on the expensive side but does perform accordingly. Value for money i'd say.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Security is a major issue when you've over 40-50 instances and servers running on cloud. Ensuring security is one of the most important aspect when business is concerned. After recent SQL injection we gave this tool a shot and it seems to be performing as of now.

"Private, Isolated VLANs for your AWS Cloud-based infrastructure"

What do you like best?

This feature allows you to have your own private, isolated OSI Layer 2 network "VLAN" between your EC2 instances. This is very useful to securely connect your services (eg. databases with web-server workers) without exposing them to the public internet. Also they recently added NAT-gateway support, so you can assign a private IP address to your internal instances, and they will be able to reach the internet securely without a public IP. They only charge for the VPN connections to the VPC network and the NAT gateway usage.

What do you dislike?

IPv6 is not supported by VPC at this time. This might be the biggest disadvantage if IPv6 support is needed. The NAT gateway feature is a bit expensive.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Using VPC for any kind of EC2 instance cluster is a must. It's free if you only need the virtual network, so there is no point to skip it. Also the VPN feature is useful and cheap if you don't need to use it too often.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We've used VPC for a customer AWS deployment. The main benefit in our case was being able to connect the internal services securely and without exposing them to the internet, which reinforces the overall security of the setup

"An essential tool for AWS hosting"

What do you like best?

VPC has given us a lot more flexibility to create secure services hosted on AWS by allowing for internal networks that are available just to us.

What do you dislike?

I've been a user since they first launched VPC, and it was difficult to understand and use in the beginning. But the product has matured a lot since then and I have no complaints now.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's basically required to use VPC now, but if you have not yet looked at everything it can do it's worth your time to investigate all the features it offers.

"Simple and effective"

What do you like best?

Amazon VPC keeps your resources isolated from others. It protects your resources from any traffic you do not allow, even from within the same account. You have complete control and can even automate your environment so you can version control it or deploy it elsewhere. The interface is relatively simple and you do not need to be a Citrix certified engineer to make your own environment.

What do you dislike?

Some features like VPC flow logs are not yet supported by CloudFormation.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Use it

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Isolating resources and achieving granular control over the network components in an environment. Amazon VPC was made for this purpose and excels at it.

"Secured AWS"

What do you like best?

You can launch almost any resource provided by AWS in a defined virtual network without compromising its security. One can create subnets, define both public and private IPs and create a whole new configuration which suits the business need.

What do you dislike?

Amazon services are not for free.

UI needs improvement as it's not easy to comprehend for beginners.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's one mixture of all the AWS services at not the expense of reliability. Plus security is one another important benefit which VPC provides.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It provides multiple connectivity options where you can choose which part of the server should be exposed to internet or which servers are connected to the local database securely or connect to S3 using an internet gateway. Overall it provides multiple layers of protections and easy going configurations.

"Does just about everything you want it to do"

What do you like best?

Provides a way to set up a virtual LAN/intranet for your servers and give them private IPs which can be assigned to public ones.

What do you dislike?

The security groups/ACLs aren't very robust at all. In particular, they are assigned at the NIC level rather than the IP address level so if a service is bound to only one IP address, that port must be opened on all ports on that NIC.

"Currently migrating ec2 classic to vpc"

What do you like best?

Ultimately the vpc set up is better security wise. You can change instance security groups more easily and create multiple network interfaces per instance.

What do you dislike?

It's non-trivial. If you're used to ec2 classic there will definitely be a learning curve getting started.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Do your homework as there are some nuanced differences. We're a small team and didn't fully start to adopt vpc until we brought on our first sys admin.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Ultimately it looks like amazon is driving everyone down this road. Lots of our stuff does not need to be internet facing and vpc is perfect for that. Also, newer instance types are only available in vpc.

"Used VPC for 5 years "

What do you like best?

The ability to set up a network that has the same characteristics as a physical on-premise network.

What do you dislike?

The ability to misconfigure the security of a subnet and to allow unexpected traffic. But this is the characteristic of any security implementation.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The original non-VPC implementation is no longer recommended and Amazon VPC provides a much more granular control over the security of your network infrastructure.
