What is the definition of Multi Cloud Network Architecture?
Because all of the cloud service providers have their own limitations and challenges, there is an architectural gap when enterprises start using the cloud. This is because there is no reference architecture to help guide enterprises as they transition into the cloud, causing issues with the networking itself and security.
This is where Aviatrix comes in with the Multi-Cloud Network Architecture. It provides a cloud agnostic framework that can easily be replicated.
The Components of the MCNA
- The Cloud Core has the applications connecting to the Global Transit Layer, which is a unified, global data plane across multiple/single clouds.
- The Cloud Access Layer is where the on-prem components connect to the cloud.
- The Cloud Security should be embedded in the Cloud Core Layer and the Cloud Access layer, because the public cloud is a shared infrastructure. This can be seen in the MCN Architecture when the Cloud Security layer cuts through the others.
- Similarly, the Cloud Operations layer makes Day 1, 2, and 3 operations accessible to all the parts of the cloud. This allows troubleshooting and visibility.
The Benefits of the MCNA Approach
- The architecture is easily replicated in the Aviatrix controller.
- There is a normalized data plane.
- Service insertion and chaining are easily configured through the transit layer.
