Build secure application networks with VPC Lattice, Amazon ECS, and AWS Lambda


In this post, we’ll explore how to publish and consume services running on Amazon Elastic Container Service (Amazon ECS) and AWS Lambda, as Amazon VPC Lattice services. For an introduction to Amazon VPC Lattice, please read the documentation here.

One main reason customer experience a lower velocity of innovation, is the complexity they deal with while trying to ensure that their applications can communicate in a simple and secure way. Amazon VPC Lattice is a powerful application networking service that removes this complexity, and gives developers a simpler user experience to share their application and connect with dependencies without having to setup any of the underlying network connectivity across Amazon Virtual Private Clouds (Amazon VPCs), AWS accounts, and even overlapping IP addressing. It handles both application layer load balancing and network connectivity, so that developers can focus on their applications, instead of infrastructure.
