Starting today, AWS Transit Gateway Connect is now available in the Europe (Milan), Asia Pacific (Hong Kong), Africa (Cape Town), and Middle East (Bahrain) Regions.
AWS Transit Gateway Connect is a feature of AWS Transit Gateway that simplifies branch connectivity through native integration of Software-Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) appliances into AWS. Customers can now seamlessly extend their SD-WAN edge into AWS using standard protocols such as Generic Routing Encapsulation (GRE) and Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) through partner orchestrators with just a few clicks. Transit Gateway Connect provides customers with added benefits such as improved bandwidth and supports dynamic routing with increased route limits, thus removing the need to set up multiple IPsec VPNs between the SD-WAN appliances and Transit Gateway. This simplifies the overall network design and reduces the associated operational cost. Furthermore, Transit Gateway Connect is fully integrated with AWS Transit Gateway Network Manager to provide customers with advanced visibility through global network topology, attachment-level performance metrics, and telemetry data.
With this launch, AWS Transit Gateway Connect is now available in 20 AWS Regions: US East (N. Virginia, Ohio), US West (Oregon, N. California), Europe (Ireland, London, Paris, Frankfurt, Stockholm, Milan), Asia Pacific (Tokyo, Seoul, Singapore, Sydney, Mumbai, Hong Kong), Canada (Central), South America (São Paulo), Africa (Cape Town), and Middle East (Bahrain).
