AWS Fargate now has support for AWS PrivateLink. PrivateLink allows you to privately connect your Amazon VPC to AWS services including Amazon ECR. When you create PrivateLink endpoints for ECR, Fargate can pull container images without needing to traverse the public internet.

PrivateLink endpoints are easy to configure. They provide reliable connectivity to Fargate without requiring an Amazon Network Address Translation (NAT) Gateway. With PrivateLink endpoints, you can protect your Fargate tasks from internet traffic, and reduce the exposure to threats.

To learn more about how Fargate support PrivateLink, read our documentation. Fargate integration with PrivateLink is available in all regions where Fargate is available. To learn more about where Fargate is available, visit the AWS region table.
