AWS Global Accelerator

Improve application availability, performance, and security using the AWS global network

Improve network performance for your applications by up to 60%.

Keep your applications available with quick failover for multi-Region architectures.

Achieve deterministic routing by removing DNS cache dependencies.

Protect your applications from DDoS attacks at the edge versus in Region.

How it works

AWS Global Accelerator is a networking service that helps you improve the availability, performance, and security of your public applications. Global Accelerator provides two global static public IPs that act as a fixed entry point to your application endpoints, such as Application Load Balancers, Network Load Balancers, Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) instances, and elastic IPs.

AWS Global Accelerator connects end users to load balancers in up to 10 Regions within the AWS global network.
