Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) now supports creating and managing Network Load Balancers (NLB) in shared VPCs. Using NLBs with VPC sharing, you can now route traffic across subnets in VPCs owned by a centrally managed account in the same Amazon Organization.

To get started, the VPC owner shares a subnet with your account using the Resource Access Manager. You can then view, create, modify, and delete your NLBs or load balancing targets (e.g. Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) and Amazon Elastic Containers) in the shared subnets. You can also use NLBs to create an Amazon PrivateLink service, which will enable users to privately access your services in the shared subnets from other VPCs or on-premises networks, without using public IPs or requiring the traffic to traverse the internet.

Support for Network Load Balancer in shared subnets is now available in both Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) Region, operated by Sinnet, and Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD.
