Managing multiple connected AWS VPCs, and how a few simple Ansible tricks can save your sanity

Standing up your first compute instance in EC2 is easy, but networking multiple solutions can get complex very quickly, especially if your data has any regulatory requirements.

Illumina manages over 10PB of genetic and healthcare data around the world, and this talk covers how Illumina automated the creation and management of a mesh network spanning over 20 application VPCs in multiple AWS regions, peered with DMZ VPCs with DMVPN links to our corporate WAN, and a DNS infrastructure that makes things appear seamless.

Prerequisites: Basic understanding of AWS services, IP networking and DNS
