About the course

In this course, *Centralizing Egress Traffic via AWS Transit Gateway, you’ll learn to create an AWS environment with AWS Transit Gateway for routing egress traffic to the internet. First, you’ll explore VPC peering. Next, you’ll discover NAT gateways, transit gateways, and AWS Network Firewall. Finally, you’ll learn how to put this all together as a challenge lab, whereby you will be modifying an existing decentralized solution into a centralized approach for internet egress traffic. When you’re finished with this course, you’ll have the skills and knowledge needed to develop this approach in your own environments.
