Transit VPC option

Building on the Software VPN designs mentioned above, you can create a global transit network on AWS. A transit VPC is a common strategy for connecting multiple, geographically disperse VPCs and remote networks in order to create a global network transit center. A transit VPC simplifies network management and minimizes the number of connections required to connect multiple VPCs and remote networks. The following figure illustrates this design.

Along with providing direct network routing between VPCs and on-premises networks, this design also enables the transit VPC to implement more complex routing rules, such as network address translation between overlapping network ranges, or to add additional network-level packet filtering or inspection. The transit VPC design can be used to support important use cases like, private networking, shared connectivity and cross account AWS usage.
