Unfortunately, MuleSoft 4 currently does not support VPC peering across different regions. This means you cannot directly connect your Anypoint VPC in one region to another VPC in a different region using VPC peering.

Here are some limitations and alternatives to consider:


  • Inter-region peering is not supported for Anypoint VPCs.

  • Anypoint VPN only connects to on-premises networks or private clouds, not between VPCs in different regions.


  1. Direct Connect: Establish a dedicated network connection between your on-premises network or cloud to your VPCs in different regions using AWS Direct Connect. This can provide higher bandwidth and lower latency compared to internet-based connections.

  2. Transit Gateway: Create a transit gateway that connects your VPCs in different regions. This allows you to route traffic between the VPCs through the transit gateway instead of over the internet.

  3. Cloud NAT: Use Cloud NAT in each region to provide internet access to your VPCs and connect them indirectly through public IP addresses.

  4. Cloud VPN: Use Cloud VPN to establish a secure tunnel between your VPCs in different regions. However, this might not be as performant as Direct Connect or Transit Gateway.

Additional Options:

  • If you specifically need MuleSoft 4 applications to communicate across regions, consider migrating your Mule applications to AWS Lambda or Amazon ECS, which both support cross-region deployments.

  • Explore third-party solutions that offer inter-region connectivity for VPCs, although these might incur additional costs and complexity.

Remember to select the approach that best suits your specific needs, considering factors like security, performance, cost, and complexity. Feel free to provide more details about your use case if you need further assistance in choosing the most appropriate solution.
