AWS Certified Solutions Architect - Professional (#559)

A Solutions Architect is designing a network solution for a company that has applications running in a data center in Northern Virginia. The applications in the company’s data center require predictable performance to applications running in a virtual private cloud (VPC) located in us-east-1, and a secondary VPC in us-west-2 within the same account. The company data center is collocated in an AWS Direct Connect facility that serves the us-est-1 region. The company has already ordered an AWS Direct Connect connection and a cross-connect has been established. Which solution will meet the requirements at the LOWEST cost?

Provision a Direct Connect gateway and attach the virtual private gateway
(VGW) for the VPC in us-east-1 and the VGW for the VPC in us-west-2. Create a private VIF on the Direct Connect connection and associate it to the Direct Connect gateway.
Create private VIFs on the Direct Connect connection for each of the company’s VPCs in the us-est-1 and us-west-2 regions. Configure the company’s data center router to connect directly with the VPCs in those regions via the private VIFs.
Deploy a transit VPC solution using Amazon EC2-based router instances in the us-east-1 region. Establish IPsec VPN tunnels between the transit routers and virtual private gateways (VGWs) located in the us-east-1 and us-west-2 regions, which are attached to the company’s VPCs in those regions. Create a public VIF on the Direct Connect connection and establish IPsec VPN tunnels over the public VIF between the transit routers and the company’s data center router.
Order a second Direct Connect connection to a Direct Connect facility with connectivity to the us-west-2 region. Work with a partner to establish a network extension link over dark fiber from the Direct Connect facility to the company’s data center. Establish private VIFs on the Direct Connect connections for each of the company’s VPCs in the respective regions. Configure the company’s data center router to connect directly with the VPCs in those regions via the private VIFs.
