Direct Connect gateway enables you to connect between your on-premises networks and Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC) in any commercial AWS Region, except for the AWS China (Beijing) and AWS China (Ningxia) Regions, using AWS Direct Connect connections at any AWS Direct Connect location.
Prior to multi-account support, you could only associate Amazon VPCs with a Direct Connect gateway in the same AWS account. To use the Direct Connect gateway, you had to create and manage a Direct Connect gateway per AWS account. With the launch of multi-account support for Direct Connect gateway, you can associate up to 10 Amazon VPCs from multiple accounts with a Direct Connect gateway. The Amazon VPCs and the Direct Connect gateway must be owned by AWS Accounts that belong to the same AWS payer account ID.
There are no additional charges to use multi-account Direct Connect gateway. Data Transfer Out is billed to the AWS account that owns the private virtual interface. Multi-account support for Direct Connect gateway is available in all commercial AWS Regions, except for the AWS China (Beijing) and AWS China (Ningxia) Regions.
