Learn practically implementing the AWS Transit Gateway between VPC's
Understand and implement Transit Gateway concepts (Attachments, Association and Propagation)
You will learn practically implementing Transit Gateway with default route tables which are auto generated (Full Mesh Architecture)
You will learn practically implementing Transit Gateways with custom Route Tables (Control the connectivity between VPC's using TGW Route Tables)
You will learn practically implementing Transit Gateway sharing across cross accounts to enable connectivity to cross account VPC's.
You will learn practically implementing AWS Resource Access Manager basics when implementing cross account transit gateway sharing.


  • Should have basic understanding about AWS Cloud Services primarily VPC & EC2.
  • You must have an AWS account to follow with me for hands-on activities.


Welcome to this Amazing course on AWS VPC Transit Gateway. We will learn by practically implementing AWS VPC Transit Gateway in 3 practical scenarios.

1. Implement Transit Gateway using default route tables.

2. Implement Transit Gateway by sharing it with cross accounts.

3. Implement Transit Gateway by creating multiple custom route tables and controlling the traffic between different VPC's as desired.

4. During the process, we will create VPC's, Subnets, Route Tables, Internet Gateways and EC2 VM's where we gain knowledge about these features by practically creating them 4 times during the course.
