You can now connect over IPv6 to your services hosted in AWS using AWS PrivateLink. AWS PrivateLink is a highly available, scalable technology that enables you to privately connect your VPC to supported AWS services, services hosted by other AWS accounts (VPC Endpoint Services), third-party SaaS services and supported AWS Marketplace partner services.
With this launch, you can now easily enable IPv6 access to your existing IPv4-based or IPv6-based services via AWS PrivateLink by updating flags in your VPC Endpoint Service and Network Load Balancer (NLB) configurations. If you are a PrivateLink Endpoint owner, you can now access IPv6-enabled PrivateLink services by upgrading your existing IPv4-based endpoints to dual-stack or creating new PrivateLink endpoints in IPv6-only subnets.
