Customers of Appian Cloud can use AWS PrivateLink to enable secure communication between their Appian Cloud environments and AWS resources hosted on their private networks. PrivateLink can be used to integrate with your services such as business data sources or authentication systems through your own AWS Virtual Private Cloud (VPC). PrivateLink can also be used to expose an Appian Cloud environment to your VPC.
This integration option is an alternative to VPN Tunnels for customers who have IT infrastructure running on AWS.
PrivateLink connectivity gives you several benefits, including, but not limited to:
This integration option allows an Appian Cloud environment to communicate with resources inside your managed VPC, where the operation is initiated by the Appian Cloud environment. For example, the Appian Cloud environment querying an RDBMS hosted in your VPC.
In this configuration, Appian Cloud acts as the service consumer and your VPC acts as the service provider. See Access Your VPC using AWS PrivateLink for more details.
This integration option allows resources within your VPC to communicate directly with an Appian Cloud environment. For example, data management tools hosted in your VPC querying the business database hosted on the Appian Cloud environment using Enhanced Data Pipeline.
In this configuration, the Appian Cloud environment is the service provider and your VPC is the service consumer. See Access an Appian Cloud Environment Using AWS PrivateLink for more details.
