Network Load Balancer, designed to handle millions of requests per second while maintaining ultra-low latencies, is now available in the AWS GovCloud (US) Region. Network Load Balancer is optimized to handle volatile traffic patterns while using a single static IP address per Availability Zone. It operates at connection level (Layer 4), routing connections to Amazon EC2 instances, containers, and IP addresses based on IP protocol data. It also preserves the client-side source IP, allowing applications to see the IP address of the client that can then be used by applications for further processing. 

With this regional launch, Network Load Balancer is now available in 16 AWS Regions: US East (N. Virginia), US East (Ohio), US West (N. California), US West (Oregon), South America (São Paulo), EU (Ireland), EU (Frankfurt), EU (London), EU (Paris), Asia Pacific (Seoul), Asia Pacific (Sydney), Asia Pacific (Singapore), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), Asia Pacific (Mumbai), Canada (Central) and AWS GovCloud (US) Regions.
