Amazon VPC IP address manager (IPAM) now lets you manage IP addresses in accounts outside of your AWS Organization using AWS Resource Access Manager (RAM). This simplifies your IP management workflows (e.g., plan, track, and monitor) by enabling you to use a single IPAM across all your AWS accounts.

Your network can extend to VPCs that are in accounts outside your organization. For example, these accounts can represent another line of business in your company or a managed service hosted by a partner on your behalf. With today’s release, you can share your IPAM managed IP addresses with accounts in other organizations. Using your shared IP addresses, owners of these accounts can create VPCs or Elastic IP addresses, that conform to your connectivity needs. Today’s release also lets you monitor IP addresses (including Elastic IPs) in other organizations, enabling you to avoid connectivity issues that can be caused by misallocation of IP addresses, such as overlapping IPs, thereby improving your auditing workflows.

This new feature is available in all AWS regions where VPC IP Address Manager (IPAM) is available: Africa (Cape Town), Asia Pacific (Hong-Kong), Asia Pacific (Mumbai), Asia Pacific (Osaka), Asia Pacific (Sydney), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), Asia Pacific (Seoul), Asia Pacific (Singapore), Canada (Central), Europe (Dublin), Europe (Frankfurt), Europe (London), Europe (Milan), Europe (Paris), Europe (Stockholm), Middle East (Bahrain), South America (Sao Paulo), US West (Northern California), US East (N.
