Streamline access to most used AWS services using VPC Endpoints

Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC) endpoints, powered by Amazon Web Services (AWS) PrivateLink, can be used to privately connect your applications to AWS services as if they were in your VPC. For enterprises that use many AWS services, it may be difficult to understand which services are being used most often and therefore can […]

How to migrate your VPC endpoint service backend targets

Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) endpoints – powered by AWS PrivateLink—allow you to securely expose your application to consumers on AWS without using public IP space and without worrying about overlapping private IP space. You also don’t have to worry about creating bidirectional network paths using services like AWS Transit Gateway or Amazon VPC Peering.To […]

Hosting Internal HTTPS Static Websites with ALB, S3, and PrivateLink

Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) is a powerful platform that enables you to do various tasks. One notable feature is the ability to create a bucket with an FQDN, point an alias record to the bucket website endpoint, and immediately get up-and-running with an HTTP static website. If you want to serve HTTPS traffic […]

Approaches to Transport Layer Tenant Routing for SaaS using AWS PrivateLink

In today’s ecosystem, Software as a Service (SaaS) offerings are primarily delivered in a low friction, service-centric approach over the Internet. These services are often mobile applications or websites delivered via a Content Delivery Network (CDN), such as Amazon CloudFront, that in turn issues requests to the backend SaaS platform. As a SaaS provider, your […]

Designing hyperscale Amazon VPC networks

Introduction Amazon Web Services (AWS) customers are continuously increasing the number of applications and workloads they run on AWS, driven by accelerated cloud adoption and environment expansion. An environment can be considered “Hyperscale” once it supports thousands of application endpoints and tens or hundreds of gigabits of traffic per second. Hyperscale environments on AWS favor […]

Automating Domain Delegation for Public Applications in AWS

Security is top priority at AWS. Cybersecurity and digital risk management are the primary considerations of customers when ensuring that security and trust are always in place for a secure data and cloud infrastructure. These concerns are even more critical for public internet facing applications, which are accessed using a public domain. In AWS Cloud, […]

Expedite your IPv6 adoption with PrivateLink services and endpoints

AWS now supports IPv6 for AWS PrivateLink services and endpoints. PrivateLink support for IPv6 expedites IPv6 adoption by decoupling the service consumer and service provider IP protocol version. Even if a service provider has not started to support IPv6 for all their back-end services, service consumers can use IPv6 within their VPCs to access the […]

Implement a central ingress Application Load Balancer supporting private Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service VPCs

Introduction Many organizations deploy Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS) clusters into Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) environments with direct access to the internet and to other VPCs. Connectivity between the VPC hosting the Amazon EKS cluster and other VPCs is typically created using routed networking services, such as VPC Peering or AWS Transit Gateway. […]
