Need of conventional BGP support in the cloud
The only way to run BGP in the cloud between any two networking devices is via tunneling protocol like IPsec. There are scenarios where it is critical to use such tunneling protocols for example when “encryption” is a requirement. The use of BGP with IPsec limits the performance to 1.25G which in many cases is a bottleneck and add unnecessary complexity in the design and troubleshooting.
Aviatrix new feature “BGP over LAN” allows Aviatrix Transit Gateways to run BGP without IPsec. Enterprises can now take advantage of all the available fabric bandwidth within a VPC/VNet.
A good use case is to form BGP adjacency with SDWAN devices without sacrificing the throughput. Aviatrix Transit gateways connects to the rest of the network using High Performance Encryption (HPE) and provides high throughput and inspection via NGFWs as shown below:
