Amazon S3 on Outposts now supports AWS PrivateLink, providing direct access to manage your S3 on Outposts storage capacity via a private endpoint within your virtual private network. This allows you to simplify your internal network architecture and perform management operations on your S3 storage by using private IP addresses in your Virtual Private Cloud (VPC), eliminating the need to use public IPs or proxy servers.

Customers today connect on-premises applications with Amazon S3 on Outposts using private IP addresses within their VPC, privately transferring object data in and out of S3 on Outposts. Many customers, however, also want to manage their S3 on Outposts capacity without configuring public IPs or proxy servers. With full S3 on Outposts support for PrivateLink, you can now provision interface VPC endpoints for the S3 on Outposts Control API in your VPC. This allows you to seamlessly create buckets, manage endpoints, and apply security policies from within your own VPC via the AWS Command Line Interface (CLI) or programmatically via AWS Software Development Kits (SDKs). Interface VPC endpoints are private endpoints that are assigned private IPs from your VPC.

AWS Outposts is a fully managed service that offers the same AWS infrastructure, AWS services, APIs, and tools to virtually any on-premises datacenter or co-location space for a truly consistent hybrid experience. Amazon S3 on Outposts delivers object storage to your on-premises AWS Outposts rack environment to help you meet low latency, local data processing, and data residency needs. AWS PrivateLink provides private connectivity between VPCs, AWS services, and your on-premises networks, without exposing your traffic to the public internet.
