What is VPC
Architecture of VPC
The outer line represents the region, and the region is us-east-1. Inside the region, we have VPC, and outside the VPC, we have internet gateway and virtual private gateway. Internet Gateway and Virtual Private Gateway are the ways of connecting to the VPC. Both these connections go to the router in a VPC and then router directs the traffic to the route table. Route table will then direct the traffic to Network ACL. Network ACL is the firewall or much like security groups. Network ACL are statelist which allows as well as deny the roles. You can also block the IP address on your Network ACL. Now, move over to the security group that accesses another line against the EC2 instance. It has two subnets, i.e., Public and Private subnet. In public subnet, the internet is accessible by an EC2 instance, but in private subnet, an EC2 instance cannot access the internet on their own. We can connect the instances. To connect an instance, move over to the public subnet and then it SSH to the private subnet. This is known as jump boxes. In this way, we can connect an instance in public subnet to an instance in private subnet.
Some ranges are reserved for private subnet:
What can we do with a VPC?
Note: Non-Transitive Peering means the networks that you want to connect are directly linked.
Let's understand the example of non-transitive peering through an example.
The above figure shows that VPC B has peered to the VPC A, so instance in VPC B can talk to VPC A. However, VPC B cannot talk to VPC C through VPC A. This is known as Non-Transitive Peering, i.e., both VPC C and VPC B are not directly linked so they cannot talk to each other.
So, to communicate between VPC B and VPC C, we need to peer them as shown in the below figure.
