IBM Cloud is pleased to announce the enhancement update of IBM Cloud Transit Gateway multi-account support.

You can now interconnect IBM Cloud Virtual Private Clouds (VPCs)–Gen1 or Gen2—between separate IBM Cloud accounts.   

IBM Cloud Transit Gateway provides a central hub for connectivity, making it easy to provision and manage your networks. You can create a single or multiple transit gateways to connect IBM Cloud VPCs together. You can also connect your IBM Cloud classic infrastructure to a transit gateway, to provide seamless communication with classic infrastructure resources. All data is optimized for performance and remains within the private IBM Cloud backbone.  

IBM Cloud Transit Gateway provides a central hub for connectivity, making it easy to provision and manage your networks.

Transit Gateway multi-account support is an enhancement that allows enterprises with multiple accounts under their control—often set up to separate billing by department—to interconnect VPC resources via an opt-in model between VPC account owners. The Transit Gateway account owner can send a connection request to a VPC owner in a different account (same or different company).

You can build applications that span multiple IBM VPCs without the operational burden of managing a distributed network. As your business needs change and expand, you can quickly and easily expand network capacity and extend applications running in the Cloud to IBM Cloud’s global network of data centers to deliver applications to employees and clients around the world. Clients today are using Transit Gateway to connect applications for the purposes of delivering highly available, distributed workloads, edge access, and more.
