Can there be communication between VPC in two different regions

+1 vote
I was trying to make connection between two instances both in different region, i want to know as is it even possible?

If the two VPCs are in same region we can use VPC Peering.

What about VPC in different region?

Hello @findingbugs, as you said in your question it is absolutely correct that we can use VPC Peering provided by Amazon to build a private connection between your VPCs.

Coming to your question,

Yes, it is possible. You can build a connection between two VPC in different region.

Taking an example of EC2 instance trying to connect to a DB Instance.

Your EC2 must use public IP.

Your Db Instance must allow public access, i.e. it must be in a public subnet.

You must give public access while you create the DB Instance.

Note:- Both your VPC must have public subnets with Internet Gateway attached to the route table, else they won't be accessible.

@Priyaj, Does VPC Peering work for VPC being in same region?

 VPC peering supports between different regions. If you have VPC peering, network transfer will be in private. If you don't want VPC peering, then communication will happen on the Public network means Instance must have Public IP to communicate.

@Sankar can you explain the one which doesn't have VPC Peering and communication happens on Public Network?
Hi @extremous,

Yes, communication will happen between two instance across different region without vpc-peering. But this communication will work when both instance are in public subnet. Just check create one instance in Singapore region and create another one in sydney region. Then ping from each other. It will work. But make sure ICMP request protocol should open in both Security group of instance.
Thanks a lot @Latchu, That was very informative and clear.
