Announcing support for AWS PrivateLink

Aiven services now support AWS PrivateLink for secure network connectivity. Find out what it means for you.

We’re happy to announce that Aiven services now support AWS PrivateLink for secure network connectivity. This new capability is an addition to the previously supported VPC peering and AWS Transit Gateway options as we continue to strengthen our customers’ ability to securely connect cloud and on-premise applications in their environments.

AWS PrivateLink, an AWS networking service, provides private connectivity between VPCs, Aiven services, and your on-premise networks without exposing your traffic to the public internet. Now you can easily create an Aiven service cluster with PrivateLink enabled, and securely connect to it from your VPC or on-premises network.

AWS PrivateLink offers a secure connection to Aiven services and simplifies network management. AWS PrivateLink traffic is fully private and does not go through the public internet.

With AWS PrivateLink you can reduce your vulnerability to brute force, distributed denial-of-service attacks and other threats. It allows you to use private IP connectivity, with your Aiven services functioning as though they were hosted directly on the same, private network. This means no more configuring firewalls, internet gateways, VPC peering connections, path definitions, or routing tables! It makes the management of complex networks much easier.

Do you have existing on-premise applications that you would like to migrate using Aiven services in the cloud? You can now migrate them easily and worry-free, as your traffic remains private and compliant with privacy policies.
