Amazon Cloud Control API now supports Amazon PrivateLink, providing access for customers to leverage Amazon Cloud Control API through private Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) endpoints within their virtual private network in Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) Region, operated by Sinnet, and Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD. Customers can now manage their cloud infrastructure in a consistent manner and use the latest Amazon Web Services capabilities faster using Cloud Control API’s common application programming interfaces (APIs) through private IP addresses in their Amazon VPC. These customers can use Amazon Cloud Control API without having to use public IPs, firewall rules, or an internet gateway.

With Amazon PrivateLink, you can provision and use VPC endpoints to access supported Amazon Web Services resources. Amazon PrivateLink provides private connectivity between VPCs, Amazon Web Services, and your on-premises networks, without exposing your traffic to the public internet. For example, customers from regulated industries that prefer to keep their VPCs private with no internet connectivity can now use Cloud Control API to create, read, update, delete, and list (CRUDL) Amazon Web Services resources with a consistent API. These customers can now benefit from a uniform method to manage hundreds of Amazon Web services resources on the Amazon CloudFormation Registry. Furthermore, as Cloud Control API is up to date with the latest Amazon Web Services resources as soon as they are available on the CloudFormation Registry, you can now adopt the latest Amazon Web Services innovation through private VPC endpoints.

There is no additional charge for using Amazon Cloud Control API with native Amazon Web Services resource types. You will only pay for the usage of underlying Amazon Web Services resources (refer to the pricing page for more details). To learn more about Amazon PrivateLink pricing, please refer to its pricing page.

You can get started with creating a Amazon PrivateLink VPC interface endpoint for Amazon Cloud Control API by using the Amazon CLI or Amazon SDKs. To learn more, refer to Cloud Control API’s user guide.
