AWS Transit Gateway

Connect Amazon VPCs, AWS accounts, and on-premises networks to a single gateway

Streamline your architecture to manage it as it grows in complexity.

Get better visibility and control over your virtual private clouds and edge connections.

Improve security with inter-Region peering encryption on the AWS global private network.

Lift and shift your on-premises finance and video multicast applications to the cloud.

How it works

AWS Transit Gateway connects your Amazon Virtual Private Clouds (VPCs) and on-premises networks through a central hub. This connection simplifies your network and puts an end to complex peering relationships. Transit Gateway acts as a highly scalable cloud router—each new connection is made only once.

Diagram showing how you can use the AWS Transit Gateway as a network transit hub for connecting your VPCs, VPNs, and on-premises networks over a single AWS Direct Connect connection for hybrid connectivity. Data is automatically encrypted and does not travel over the public internet.

Why Transit Gateway?
AWS Transit Gateway helps you design and implement networks at scale by acting as a cloud router. As your network grows, the complexity of managing incremental connections can slow you down. AWS Transit Gateway connects VPCs and on-premises networks through a central hub.
