Announcing support for direct connectivity to Amazon Virtual Private Cloud in Amazon Managed Grafana

Amazon Managed Grafana now supports direct connectivity to data sources hosted in your Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) . Amazon Managed Grafana is a fully managed service for open-source Grafana that simplifies connecting to open-source, third-party ISV, and AWS services for visualizing and analyzing your data sources at scale. Amazon VPC is a virtual network dedicated to your AWS account where you have complete control over the virtual networking environment, including creating public-facing and private-facing subnets for your applications to connect.

Previously, Amazon Managed Grafana connected to VPC hosted data sources via public networks. Now, Amazon Managed Grafana can also connect to data sources that are inside a VPC without using public IPs or requiring traffic to traverse the Internet. Data sources such as OpenSearch, Amazon RDS databases, self-managed Prometheus, and other data sources often do not have a publicly facing endpoint. By connecting your Amazon Managed Grafana workspaces to your VPC, you will now be able to query, visualize, and alert on the data sources within your VPC. You can also connect Grafana workspaces to multiple VPCs using VPC Peering or AWS Transit Gateway. In this way, you can have both your privately-hosted and public-facing data sources connect to the same Amazon Managed Grafana workspace to visualize your data all in one place.

This feature is available within the following AWS Regions: US East (Ohio), US East (N Virginia), US West (Oregon), EU (Ireland), EU (Frankfurt), Asia Pacific (Sydney) and Asia Pacific (Tokyo). To configure VPC for Managed Grafana workspaces, you can use the AWS Console, SDK, or CLI. Check out the Amazon Managed Grafana user guide for detailed documentation.
