NAT Gateway is an enterprise-class public network gateway that provides NAT proxy services (SNAT and DNAT), up to 10 Gbps forwarding capacity, and cross-zone disaster recovery.
As a public network gateway, NAT Gateway requires configured public IPs and bandwidth. Public IPs for NAT Gateway are grouped into abstract groups called shared bandwidth packages.
NAT Gateway and shared bandwidth packages together provide a high-performance, flexible, and enterprise-class public gateway service.
The position of NAT Gateway in the VPC network topology is as shown in the following figure.
