This session will cover how to use the Cloud Services Router (CSR 1000v) to build secure, hybrid cloud networks. It is meant to address enterprise requirements to extend on-premise networks into public clouds in a way that maintains operational consistency. We will review the basics of installation and configuration of a CSR 1000v in an AWS Virtual Private Cloud (VPC). Specific use cases covered will include IPSec VPN overlay designs, Direct Connect integration, Transit VPC and Transit Gateway integration, SDWAN integration, high availability, and automation using tools like Cloudformation and Ansible.
