What means regions gateway


this is probably a silly question but I don’t understand at all what means “Gateway” when I run the platform regions command:

$ flyctl platform regions
CODE NAME                         GATEWAY

atl  Atlanta, Georgia (US)
cdg  Paris, France
dfw  Dallas 2, Texas (US)
ewr  Secaucus, NJ (US)

iad  Ashburn, Virginia (US)       ✓
lax  Los Angeles, California (US)
lhr  London, United Kingdom       ✓

sjc  Sunnyvale, California (US)   ✓

have they any performance implications?

That just means a region can be a Wireguard gateway for connecting to your private network: Private Networking · Fly

We’re still rolling that out so it’s not available everywhere, but it will be someday.

oh, thanks for the reply!
