Amazon Keyspaces (for Apache Cassandra), a scalable, highly available, and fully managed Apache Cassandra–compatible database service, now automatically optimizes client connections made through Amazon PrivateLink to improve availability and read/write throughput.

PrivateLink provides private connectivity between Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC), Amazon Web Services services, and your on-premises networks, without exposing your traffic to the public internet. PrivateLink makes it easy to connect services across different accounts and VPCs to simplify your network architecture. Amazon Keyspaces now improves the availability and read/write throughput of connections between Cassandra drivers and Keyspaces by automatically configuring your account’s Keyspaces system tables based on your VPC configuration. Clients also can create more connections by using the built-in load-balancing features of Cassandra drivers.

For information about PrivateLink endpoint pricing, see PrivateLink pricing. Amazon Keyspaces support for PrivateLink is available in the Amazon China (Beijing) Region, operated by Sinnet, and the Amazon China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD.
