The big three public cloud providers—AWS, Azure, and GCP—each provide a form of a private network inside of their public clouds. While the fundamental usage is the same, the implementations differ and have different constraints. This tutorial will compare and contrast the different cloud provider networking models, and provide approaches to interconnecting the clouds within each, across each, and with outside resources such as traditional data centers.
