MikroTik used by Amazon in their cloud datacenters

Tue Oct 31, 2017 10:41 am

CBS ran a video about "Where is the cloud actually located" and showed the Amazon datacenters. The video shows several MikroTik devices:

at 4:10 and at 6:24

Looks like Amazon uses our products in one of the worlds biggest cloud systems.
Be inspired and have a great day with your own projects :)

Sadly, it looks like the footage was probably all from inside the Raging Wire data center and not an AWS data center. It was still good to see it being used though.

Nice news!

RB3011 being used as DNS cache. Not bad at all.

PS: My RB2011 is begging for an upgrade. :)

I see a lot of Nokia 7210 SAS in that video along with Juniper MX2xx and 4xx

In New Zealand if I visit co-location style Datacentres, almost every rack will have a Mikrotik router in it. However in the big Tier3+ DC's used by enterprises it is primarily Juniper, Nokia(AlcaLu) and Cisco.

Ragingwire is part of NTT, they are data center operator and they are in business of leasing data center space and infrastructure to cloud providers like AWS, Microsoft and others ... so we actually dont know if this particular RACK is rented by AWS or somebody else ...

Congrats MikroTik, I show management products for under $100 and they think they are not good enough when in reality they are great. Disruptive pricing is hard to take seriously but you guys deserve the recognition.

Cool. I've also seen a pair of MikroTik's in a https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magnit grocery store today. They were labeled "master" and "backup" :)

I'm working at a Uk cable company and we have a whole data center core network including 2 x 10 gbps edge fibers with CCRs running multihomed BGP and OSPF core network all Mikrotik. Working away nicely.

Thank you for sharing - I have reposted the video link to our company's Facebook and LinkedIn pages, further promoting the superiority of Mikrotik devices over Cisco, Sonicwall, and Watchguard for the SMB market.

It's nice to see MikroTik devices in a data center. Congratulation MT. I am promoting MT for 5 years and people are recognizing its value here in India Now.

I've sen a couple of CRR1036 in shared datacenters, used by smaller or municipal sized ISPs. Great stuff!
Manages some CCR's, RB750Gr3, RB922 and wAP's

Could anyone care to explain use cases for cloud routers? I get that there are cases where it is needed but I cannot think of any other than VPN.

It's also a nice firewall if you want to run a DMZ in the cloud or route between VLAN's.

When you are thinking of a separate cloud server that you rent at a cheap provider, that is probably correct.
But when you have a VM host somewhere in a datacenter, it can be used as a router in front of the virtual servers you run there.
(for filtering, NAT, port forward, BGP, whatever)
