Earlier this month, we introduced AWS PrivateLink, a new service that allows customers to privately access select AWS services from their Virtual Private Cloud and from on-premises via AWS Direct Connect. We are now extending this capability to customer and partner services hosted on AWS.

With AWS PrivateLink, you can now make services available to other accounts and Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) networks that are accessed securely as private endpoints. Clients connect to these private endpoints in the normal manner, while on the service side, AWS PrivateLink works in combination with a Network Load Balancer to route traffic to your instances, containers, or IP targets and allows you to identify the origin of incoming connections. You can also choose to offer AWS PrivateLink services for subscription in the AWS Marketplace, and always terminate private connectivity from a specific endpoint at any time.

AWS PrivateLink is available in US East (N. Virginia), US East (Ohio), US West (Oregon), US West (N. California), EU (London), EU (Ireland), EU (Frankfurt), Canada (Central), Asia Pacific (Mumbai), Asia Pacific (Seoul), Asia Pacific (Singapore), Asia Pacific (Sydney), Asia Pacific (Tokyo) and South America (São Paulo) regions.
