AWS Transit Gateway now supports the ability to establish peering connections between AWS Transit Gateways in Middle East (Bahrain), Africa (Cape Town), Asia Pacific (Hong Kong), and Europe(Milan) AWS Regions. AWS Transit Gateway is a service that enables customers to connect thousands of Amazon Virtual Private Clouds (Amazon VPCs) and their on-premises networks using a single gateway. With AWS Transit Gateway, customers only have to create and manage a single connection from a central regional gateway to each Amazon VPC, on-premises data center, or remote office across their networks.
The ability to peer AWS Transit Gateways between different AWS Regions enables customers to extend this connectivity and build global networks spanning multiple AWS Regions. Traffic using AWS Transit Gateway Inter-region Peering always stays on the AWS global network and never traverses the public internet, thereby reducing threat vectors, such as common exploits and DDoS attacks. AWS Transit Gateway Inter-region Peering encrypts inter-region traffic with no single point of failure.
