Migrating Network Operations to Cloud Enterprise Network

Cloud Enterprise Network (CEN) can help build a a global network easily and cost-effectively. In this tutorial, we will introduce how to migrate network operations to Alibaba Cloud CEN.

Multinational enterprises benefits immensely by moving to the cloud. Most enterprises want to connect global offices with the HQ but building a cross-border network is very difficult, especially during the expansion period due to limited resources. Companies require a networking solution that helps them build a global network easily and cost-effectively.

Express Connect (EC) can help you build private network communication channels between VPCs or between a VPC and your local IDC. But Cloud Enterprise Network (CEN) allows you to create a global network for rapidly building a distributed business system with a hybrid cloud computing solution. In this tutorial, we will introduce how to migrate your networking services from Express Connect to Cloud Enterprise Network.

If a physical connection is established for access, no change is needed for the physical connection between your IDC and Alibaba Cloud Virtual Border Router (VBR). You simply need to change the connection mode from the VBR to the VPC instance. In this tutorial, we will introduce how to migrate to Cloud Enterprise Network offline.

  1. Create a CEN
  2. Console > Express Connect > VPC Peering Connections > VBR-to-VPC
  3. Click ... on the side of the page
  4. Click Delete on the menu that expands
  5. Load VBR and VPC instances on CEN
  6. Setup Configurations

Migrate a VBR in a peering connection to a CEN instance

This topic describes how to migrate a Virtual Border Router (VBR) that uses a peering connection to a Cloud Enterprise Network (CEN) instance. By using CEN, you can build private network communication channels between VPCs or between VPCs and on-premises data centers. CEN uses automatic route distribution and learning, which can improve the network convergence and the quality and security of cross-network communication, and achieve the interconnection of all network resources.

Building a Global Enterprise VPC in 3 Minutes

The procedure involved only three steps: powering on a PC, connecting its WAN port to the Internet, and connecting its LAN port to another PC. The on-site PC successfully connected to the enterprise SAP system deployed on Alibaba Cloud through the VPC without any other operations on this PC.

In addition, the network quality test results showed that the network quality of the enterprise VPC built using SmartAG was improved in aspects of delay and packet loss.

Cloud Enterprise Network (CEN) provides communication channels between cloud resources, and between cloud resources and Internet data centers (IDCs). Through automatic route distribution and learning, CEN also supports fast network convergence and high-quality cross-city communication. CEN is devoted to helping users build a globally interconnected enterprise-scale network with communication capabilities.

Building Hybrid Global Networks with Cloud Enterprise Network (CEN) and VPN Gateway

This tutorial outlines the necessary steps and highlights the caveats when enabling Alibaba Cloud's Cloud Enterprise Network (CEN) service to support VPN Gateways routes to either connect to an Internet data center (IDC) or another Virtual Private Cloud (VPC).

This document describes the following scenarios:

  1. CEN and VPCs all belong to a single billing account
  2. CEN and VPCs are spread across multiple billing accounts
