Enterprises throughout the world are moving their workloads and applications to the cloud. Many enterprises use more than one cloud provider and there are many different reasons that drive the decision behind a single or multi-region architecture.
An Amazon Web Services (AWS) Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) is a private portion of the Amazon Cloud with its own networking environment and gateways to the Internet. VPC Peering supports the outset of one-to-one networking connections within two or more VPCs within two different AWS accounts or the one in the same AWS Region.
Amazon VPC enables you to launch AWS resources into a virtual network. Instances in either VPC can communicate with each other as if they are within the same network. You can build a VPC peering connection between your own VPCs, or with a VPC in another AWS account. The VPCs can be in different regions.
AWS uses the current infrastructure of a VPC to build a VPC peering connection. It is not a gateway or a VPN connection, and does not have a distinct piece of physical hardware. There is no single point failure for communication or a bandwidth block.
With the primer of VPC peering features, life is at ease for AWS users. With the support of VPC peering connectivity, you will be able to connect two Amazon VPCs and which would then enable you to route traffic between them with the aid of private IP addresses.
Data transferred across Inter-Region VPC Peering connections is charged at the standard inter-region data transfer rates.
