Gateway Load Balancers

In the Application Load Balancers & Custom VPCs Ryan shows only 3 load balancers on his AWS console, however now there is a 4th load balancer option for Gateway Load Balancer. 

Based on the description it seems GWLB are an important improvement for security vendors/3rd party tools, has anyone come across a vendor that took advantage of this? How was the overall experience?

In terms of the security specialty exam, anyone experience GWLB coming up?

Further to Nabil’s post above, it should be noted that (as at the time of this message, 02-02-2021) the Gateway Load Balancer is not available in all regions.

For example, as expected it is available in us-east-1 (N. Virginia), but simply does not appear on the "Select load balancer type" page in eu-west-2 (London). However, it does appear in eu-west-1 (Ireland).

Hope this helps 🙂
