Description

VPC Endpoints are virtual network devices that scale horizontally and are highly available. They can securely enable communication from Amazon EC2 instances to AWS services, and services provided by other vendors. You can create your own VPC endpoint service to expose a service in one VPC to another VPC. Using them in this way can have cost and security benefits.

Learning how to use VPC Endpoint services will increase the range of options available to you when you need to create advanced network infrastructure in the public AWS cloud.

In this lab, you will create a VPC endpoint service and related resources. You will then test that they work.
