AWS announces Amazon VPC Lattice (Preview)
Today, AWS announces the preview of Amazon VPC Lattice, an application layer networking service that makes it simple to connect, secure, and monitor service-to-service communication. You can use VPC Lattice to enable cross-account, cross-VPC connectivity, and application layer load balancing for your workloads in a consistent way regardless of the underlying compute type – instances, containers, and serverless. VPC Lattice handles common tasks required for service-to-service communication such as service discovery, request level routing and load balancing, authentication, authorization, and generates detailed metrics and logs to give you visibility into how your service is performing. In addition, Amazon VPC Lattice is a fully managed service, removing the need to install and manage additional infrastructure, such as host-based agents or sidecar proxies, making it easier to connect your new and existing applications. During the preview, Amazon VPC Lattice is available in the US West (Oregon) Region. To preview Amazon VPC Lattice, see the [sign-up page](https://pages.awscloud.com/AmazonVPCLattice-Preview.html).
