Amazon VPC Ingress Routing Makes it Easy to Insert Virtual Appliances in the Forwarding Path of VPC Traffic

Posted on: Dec 3, 2019

You can now associate route tables with internet gateway and virtual private gateway, and redirect incoming and outgoing Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC) traffic through virtual appliances in your VPC.

You can also segment your Amazon VPC traffic based on individual workloads and route this traffic through different virtual appliances, thereby creating fine grained network and security policies for each workload. You can pick a wide variety of appliances from the AWS Marketplace or use custom virtual network functions for specialized network and security features.

This feature is available in all AWS commercial and AWS GovCloud (US) Regions at no additional charge. For more information on Amazon VPC ingress routing, please read about gateway route tables in our documentation, the blog post, and the Amazon VPC product page.
