Accessing Resources from External VPCs


As you develop your application, you may have a need to connect to Engine Yard Cloud (EYC) environments or another Virtual Private Cloud (VPC). Your Engine Yard Kontainers (EYK) resources, such as databases and Redis clusters, reside in Amazon Web Services (AWS) VPC for application security. The AWS VPC is a virtual network that keeps application resources separate from publicly facing sites. Your VPC is exclusive to your cluster and does not offer built-in connectivity or peering, but can be connected by request to Support.
