Amazon Lookout for Equipment and interface VPC endpoints (AWS PrivateLink) - Amazon Lookout for Equipment

Amazon Lookout for Equipment and interface VPC endpoints (AWS PrivateLink)

You can establish a private connection between your VPC and Amazon Lookout for Equipment by creating an interface VPC endpoint. Interface endpoints are powered by AWS PrivateLink, a technology that you can use to privately access Lookout for Equipment APIs without an internet gateway, network address translation (NAT) device, VPN connection, or AWS Direct Connect connection. Instances in your VPC don't need public IP addresses to communicate with Lookout for Equipment APIs. Traffic between your VPC and Lookout for Equipment does not leave the Amazon network.

Each interface endpoint is represented by one or more Elastic Network Interfaces in your subnets.

For more information, see Interface VPC endpoints (AWS PrivateLink) in the Amazon VPC User Guide.
