Steps to create VPC Endpoint for Amazon S3

In this blog, we will show you the steps to create VPC Endpoint for Amazon S3.

VPC ENDPOINT OVERVIEW

  • If we transfer the files from EC2 to S3 it will transfer through the Internet.
  • We can also able to transfer the files from Ec2 to S3 through internal traffic when both resources are in the same region.
  • There are two types of Endpoints are available in AWS Environment. They are Gateway & Interface.
  • Earlier, When an EC2 instances try to access public resources like S3 the traffic needs to be pass-through Internet Gateway (or) NAT Gateway.
  • To simplify the approach, AWS introduced a feature called as VPC Endpoint.
  • VPC Endpoint provides highly reliable and secure connections to services like S3.
  • EC2 instance within private VPC can now connect to such services without NAT Gateway.

 

ENVIRONMENT OVERVIEW

 

  • We have 1 VPC and 2 subnets named Public subnet and Internal Subnet in a different availability zone.
