Starting today, Amazon Gateway Load Balancer is available in Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) region, operated by Sinnet and Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) region, operated by NWCD.

Amazon Gateway Load Balancer is a new service that helps you deploy, scale, and manage third-party virtual network appliances such as firewalls, intrusion detection and prevention systems, analytics, and traffic visibility systems. An addition to the Elastic Load Balancer family, Amazon Gateway Load Balancer combines a transparent network gateway (that is, a single entry and exit point for all traffic) and a load balancer that distributes traffic and scales your virtual appliances based on demand.

You can also use Amazon Gateway Load Balancer Endpoints, a new type of VPC endpoint powered by Amazon PrivateLink, to privately, securely, and transparently inject network and security services running in other VPCs into your traffic flow without worrying about overlapping CIDRs. This allows you to build centralized VPCs that can offer critical services across thousands of VPCs in your network using route tables.
