Adrian Cantrill’s SAA-C02 study course, 75 minutes: https://learn.cantrill.io/ ‘Network Address Translation and NAT Gateway’ parts 1 and 2; Review of section starting from beginning
Learning about NAT Gateways in AWS was really interesting. This helps to reinforce the notion that VPC’s are Private by default; also that again we see a regular networking concept (NAT) recontextualized in a subtle way within the purview of AWS. It has the same basic function as regular NAT (‘translating’ private IP addresses to public ones) but the implementation of the NAT GATEWAY and also that it is intrinsic to routing IPv4 to the public internet in AWS gives it a specific point of emphasis.
As I finish up this section, I am thinking about how to implement producing some more content around VPC’s, reviewing, and how I will grow this process from here on out. As I finish reviewing this section, I am also looking through my notes and planning to edit my notes into some kind of succinct, bullet-point list. Looking to be all wrapped up before the end of the week.
