Implement and configure AWS Backup for VMware Cloud on AWS VM workloads

In our previous post we saw the design of the AWS Backup on VMC. In this post we’re going through the implementation steps As per the design and best practice, we are going to use the ENI for the Backup traffic CREATE A VPC ENDPOINT  TO CREATE AN INTERFACE ENDPOINT FOR AN AWS SERVICE 1. Open the Amazon VPC console at    2. In the navigation pane, choose Endpoints 3. Choose Create endpoint 4. Name the endpoint   5. For Service category, choose AWS services 6. For Service name, search “ Backup ” and select “ backup-gateway ” service from the dropdown 7. For VPC, select the VPC which we used for SDDC deployment and extension 8. To create an interface endpoint for Amazon S3, you must “uncheck” Additional settings, Enable DNS name. This is because Amazon S3 does not support private DNS for interface VPC endpoints 9. For  Subnets , select one subnet per Availability Zone which we used for SDDC VMC selection  10. For Security group , sel

When was the Routing Information Protocol Invented?

Hedrick of Rutgers University invented the Routing Information Protocol in the summer of 1988. Since then it has become the most common routing protocol on LANs and WANs and continues to be used today. Hedrick’s work was based on the Unix computer program “routed,” which was distributed with the 4.3 version of the BSD branch of the OS. At that time, the “routed” protocol was the de-facto standard for research laboratories to communicate via network gateways. The RIP protocols use the Bellman-Ford algorithm for distance vector computation and other work completed as early as 1969 on the ARPANET. The PUP protocol preceded Hedrick’s work and later became the RIP.
How does the Routing Information Protocol Work?

RIP relies on a routing database that stores information on the fastest routes that exist between destinations on the network. This lets each router tell others the fastest route(s) and uses an update algorithm that revises route updates for each router based on the latest information from neighboring routers. Each database stores the IP address, gateway, distance, route change flag, and timers for each destination within a given routers purview.
What is the Routing Information Algorithm?

The RIP algorithm requires each router to transmit an update message on regular intervals that describes its routing database’s contents to all of the routers it communicates with. Sometimes routers have to send this message as often as twice a minute in order to keep the networks’ routers updated with the most up-to-date information on the computers and routers that are currently on the network. Once a router discovers that a neighboring one has a shorter or faster path to a given destination, it revises its local database to include this faster path. This new path is then sent to the neighboring routers through the protocol’s update process until the entire network is updated. The RIP protocol uses the UDP data transmission packet to improve efficiency since it can rely on sending future updates on regular intervals.
