Amazon EventBridge Pipes now supports event delivery through AWS PrivateLink, allowing you to send events from an event source located in an Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) to a Pipes target without traversing the public internet. With today’s launch, you can use Pipes to poll from Amazon Managed Streaming for Apache Kafka (MSK), self-managed Kafka, and Amazon MQ sources residing in a private subnet without the need to deploy a NAT gateway, configure firewall rules, or set up proxy servers.

Amazon EventBridge lets you use events to connect application components, making it easier to build scalable event-driven applications. EventBridge Pipes provides a simple, consistent, and cost-effective way to create point-to-point integrations between event producers and consumers. Pipes enables you to send data from one of 7 different event sources to any of the 20+ targets supported by the EventBridge Event Bus, including HTTPS endpoints through EventBridge API Destinations and event buses themselves. Today’s release of event delivery through AWS PrivateLink further reduces the amount of integration code you need to write and infrastructure you need to maintain when building event-driven applications.

AWS PrivateLink support for EventBridge Pipes event delivery is available in all AWS Regions where EventBridge Pipes is available.
