Routers provide L3 services such as routing and Source Network Address Translation (SNAT) between Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) network and public (WAN) networks, or different Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) networks:
A Router between Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) network and public network provides access to public networks, such as the Internet, for VMs connected to this virtual network.
