Planning Your Setup

Architecture

Pick your options

Pick which features you want to activate

  • Media Isolation
  • Media Traffic Isolation
  • Web Traffic Isolation
  • Media Replication

AWS Account Creation

Before going further, you will require an AWS Account. If you don’t already have an AWS Account, create your AWS Account.

Choose an AWS Region

Choose an AWS Region for your AWS S3 bucket and VPC. Which region to use? You should chose the a region that is the closest possible to your studio.

If your company is located in different locations, consider enabling the media replication feature to reduce latency and improve performance

Plan the VPC IP ranges

Plan your AWS VPC and subnets IP ranges.

IP Range Example

Region VPC Subnet 1 Subnet 2 Subnet 3
ap-southeast-2 10.1.0.0/16 10.1.0.0/24 10.1.1.0/24 10.1.2.0/24

Plan how you will privately access your AWS VPC

If you plan to activate any of the Traffic Isolation feature, you will need a way to connect your AWS VPC and your network infrastructure. The main options are:

  • AWS Direct Connect
  • Other VPN solution

We highly recommand you to leverage Direct Connect. Direct Connect guarantees the lowest latency possible to the Shotgun services, a consistent network experience, and allow you to leverage the optimization AWS is relying on to guarantee an optimal performance across the globe.

Next Step

With your plan layed down, you are ready to start implementing the AWS building blocks that will allow you to activate the isolation features. To avoid disruption on your production site, you will first materialize and test your setup on your Migration Test Site
