Connectivity patterns between AWS GovCloud (US) and AWS commercial partition

AWS GovCloud (US) was architected to have isolation (both physically and logically) from other AWS partitions for compliance. For this reason, AWS services, used to privately interconnect virtual private cloud (VPC) hosted resources within the same partition like AWS PrivateLink, Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC) peering, or AWS Transit Gateway peering, cannot span from AWS GovCloud (US) to commercial Regions natively by design. In this post, we will highlight four connectivity patterns customers can use to interconnect VPC hosted systems cross partition.

Using Protective DNS services with AWS workloads

Protective DNS services, commonly known as PDNS, are a go-to solution if you’re aiming to bolster the security of your infrastructure from the ground up. Unlike traditional methods involving software-based agents or devices for traffic filtering, PDNS services take a unique approach – they scrutinise the DNS requests made by users and adjust responses based on predefined rules within the service. In this post, we explore the seamless integration of PDNS services with workloads in the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud, showcasing their effectiveness in enhancing cybersecurity within cloud environments.
