What is AWS Transit Gateway?
AWS Transit Gateway is a service that gives you the ability to create connections between all the Virtual Private Clouds (VPCs) that exist across your AWS accounts as well as your on-premise networks. It can simplify your network architecture and lower your operational overhead while allowing you to manage connectivity from a central hub. You can look at it as a cloud router.
At the heart of a transit gateway are route tables. A route table includes the dynamic and static routes that determine how to route a packet. Each transit gateway has a default route table but can optionally have others as well.
You can manage your transit gateways through the following interfaces:
- AWS Management Console
- AWS Command-Line Interface (CLI)
- AWS SDKs
- Query API
You can associate each transit gateway attachment, which can include multiple VPCs, with one route table. Though you can associate each route table with many attachments.
