Aviatrix Extends Its AVX Software-Defined Cloud Routing to Automate Management of New Amazon Web Services Transit Networking

November 27, 2018

LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 27, 2018--(AWS re:Invent 2018) — Aviatrix, a pioneer in software-defined cloud routing today announced a new feature of its AVX cloud router called the Aviatrix Orchestrator. This new Aviatrix feature helps enterprises to deploy and manage Amazon Web Services (AWS) Transit Gateway, a service that allows organizations to connect their Amazon Virtual Private Clouds (Amazon VPCs) and on-premises networks to a single gateway.

“Our software-defined approach allows organizations to automate the management of all cloud networking through our AVX Controller—whether it’s the AWS Transit Gateway or another AWS networking service—to simplify networking for organizations doing business in the cloud,” said Steven Mih, CEO of Aviatrix. “Aviatrix software helps organizations meet all their cloud networking requirements—from VPC egress filtering and remote-user VPN to global transit VPCs and encrypted peering—using a single architecture.”

Aviatrix Orchestrator builds on the Aviatrix strategy to unify management of both AWS native networking services and Aviatrix services via a single management console. The new feature is available as part of the AVX Controller, which already provisions and monitors native AWS capabilities such as VPC creation, IP address management, inter-region (PCX) peering and AWS Direct Connect (i.e., virtual gateway) configurations. Using the Aviatrix software-defined approach, cloud practitioners can easily deploy the optimal routing and network security services to meet the budgetary, functional and performance requirements of their business.

“Our customers are increasingly looking for innovative networking technology that can help them manage their workloads more efficiently,” said David Brown, vice president, EC2 Compute & Networking, Amazon Web Services, Inc. “We’re delighted with Aviatrix’s AVX Orchestrator and its integration with AWS Transit Gateway, to offer customers a software-defined cloud routing approach that can help them further automate and simplify their cloud networking use cases.”

AWS Transit Gateway allows enterprises to interconnect many VPCs and easily connect VPCs to on-premises networks. AWS Transit Gateway route domains enhance cloud networking security and compliance processes by allowing VPCs to be isolated and segmented according to business requirements using layer 3 (i.e., IP routing-level) networking policies.

Aviatrix Orchestrator enhances AWS Transit Gateway by adding a powerful automation layer that allows cloud practitioners to not only provision and implement route domains securely and accurately, but also configure and propagate segmentation policies automatically. Aviatrix Orchestrator also integrates built-in troubleshooting and visualization tools for monitoring the entire environment.

Availability and Price

The Aviatrix Orchestrator is available now as an optional feature of the Aviatrix AVX Controller. New Aviatrix customers can obtain the AWS Transit Gateway Orchestrator functionality by launching the Aviatrix Secure Networking Platform (metered) AMI from AWS Marketplace. Existing customers can obtain the new functionality by performing a one-click upgrade of their AVX software to the latest version. Customers choosing to activate the feature will be billed via AWS Marketplace on a per-hour, pay-as-you-go basis. Aviatrix also offers tools and services to migrate existing configurations to the new AWS Transit Gateway service.
