What is AWS PrivateLink and how does it work
AWS PrivateLink lets you connect your applications directly to the Amazon VPC service, so that traffic never leaves the AWS cloud. You can use PrivateLink to connect your monitored hosts to the Dynatrace VPC endpoint. Dynatrace monitoring traffic is always encrypted and secure, yet PrivateLink provides even greater security, stable connectivity, and a reduction in traffic costs.
Normally, visibility and security are at opposite ends of the spectrum; however, by using AWS PrivateLink combined with Dynatrace, we enjoy the best of both worldsRobert Trueman Head of Software Engineering at CDL
