In my previous article, I walked through the steps of replicating an on-premises file server into Amazon FSx using the AWS DataSync service. Since I didn't have a VPN between my on-premises and the VPC where the FSx service was deployed to I had to use the public endpoint whereby all communication from the DataSync agent to AWS occurs over the public internet. Within this article, I'm just going to quickly show you the process of setting this up using VPC Endpoints so communication goes over a VPN or Direct Connect directly into the VPC. This will allow for reverse replication which will be a topic for a future article.
I currently the AWS DataSync agent deployed with a routable static IP address on-premises and a VPN established into my VPC. I first need to create a VPC endpoint in my VPC for the AWS DataSync Service. Ensure you are in the correct region and navigate to the VPC service. From within there, you will see the option to add Endpoints:
