AWS Transit Gateway is now available in the Europe (Stockholm) AWS Region along with the support for AWS Direct Connect. AWS Transit Gateway enables customers to connect thousands of Amazon Virtual Private Clouds (Amazon VPCs) and their on-premises networks using a single gateway. As you grow the number of workloads across multiple AWS accounts, you need to scale your networks, better control your policies, and effectively monitor your resources.

With AWS Transit Gateway, you only have to create and manage a single connection from a central gateway to each Amazon VPC, on-premises data center, or remote office. AWS Transit Gateway acts as a hub where traffic is routed to all the connected networks, the spokes. The hub and spoke model significantly simplifies management and reduces operational costs because each network only has to connect to the AWS Transit Gateway. With routing policies on the Transit Gateway, you have centralized control over how your Amazon VPCs and on-premises networks connect to each other. This model simplifies how you scale and monitor your networks. 

With this announcement, AWS Transit Gateway is now available in a total of 20 AWS Regions around the world. See the AWS Transit Gateway FAQ page for a complete and up-to-date list of these AWS Regions. For more information, see the AWS Transit Gateway product page and documentation.
