Starting today, you can bring your own IP addresses (BYOIP) to AWS Global Accelerator to advertise public /24 IP address ranges that you own from edge of the AWS global network. BYOIP enables you to front your applications in Global Accelerator with your own IP addresses, including addresses that are whitelisted in client applications, without making any client-facing changes. This allows you to move all or part of your critical and latency-sensitive applications that use hard-coded IP addresses to AWS, with high availability and performance. This also allows you to use your own IP addresses, registered in specific countries, with AWS workloads that are hosted globally, to satisfy regulatory or compliance requirements. Traffic destined to these IP addresses will be intelligently routed to the optimal endpoint by Global Accelerator over the AWS global network. Global Accelerator fails over traffic to the next available endpoint in less than 30 seconds in response to changes in application health or configuration.

Also starting today, you can assign tags to accelerators. By adding tags, you can allocate costs to specific accelerators, as well as control access to your accelerator. With tag-based access control, you can prevent accidental deletion of your accelerator, ensuring that you will keep the static IP addresses associated at the time of creation.

There is no additional charge to use the BYOIP or resource tagging features. To learn more about bringing your own IP addresses to Global Accelerator, visit the Global Accelerator product page or see the developer documentation in the AWS Global Accelerator Developer Guide. To learn more about resource tagging, see the Tagging section in the AWS Global Accelerator Developer Guide.
