High Bandwidth, Low Latency Connectivity to AWS

AWS Direct Connect makes it easy to establish a dedicated network connection from your premises to AWS.  Establish private connectivity between AWS and your datacenter, office, or colocation environment, reducing network costs, increasing bandwidth throughput, and providing a more consistent network experience compared with Internet-based connectivity.

Using industry standard 802.1q VLANs, AWS Direct Connect can be partitioned into multiple virtual interfaces to maintain network separation between the public and private environments. This allows you to use the same connection to access both public resources, such as objects stored in Amazon S3 using public IP address space, and private resources, such as Amazon EC2 instances in an Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) using private IP space. Virtual interfaces can be reconfigured at any time to meet your changing needs.

Learn how NimbusDDOS employs AWS Direct Connect at Markley

With Markley, NimbusDDOS flexibly deployed a hybrid cloud integrating key physical resources, broadband networks and public cloud resources. Check out how NimbusDDOS deployed Markley-hosted resources, AWS EC2, and native, low latency AWS Direct Connect to build a repeatable vendor testing model.

Achieve the Full Potential of your Hybrid Infrastructure

Reduces Your Bandwidth Costs

For bandwidth-heavy workloads that you wish to run in AWS, AWS Direct Connect reduces your network costs. By transferring data to and from AWS directly, you can reduce your bandwidth commitment to your ISP. Plus, all data transfers are charged at the reduced AWS Direct Connect rate rather than Internet data transfer rates.


Consistent Network Performance

Network latency over the Internet can vary greatly, due to dynamic routing of data from point A to B. With AWS Direct Connect, you choose the data that use the dedicated connection and how that data is routed for the highest quality network and application performance.

Scale Bandwidth to Meet Needs

AWS Direct Connect provides 1 Gbps and 10 Gbps connections, that can be easily provisioned into multiple connections if you need more capacity. Remove the hassle, hardware expense, and bandwidth constraints that can occur with VPN connections over the Internet.

Simple to Setup and Manage

AWS Direct Connect deploys quickly and easily from the AWS Management Console. The console provides a single management view of all your connections and virtual interfaces. After configuring one or more virtual interfaces, download customized router templates for your networking equipment.

Compatible with all AWS Services

AWS Direct Connect works with all AWS services that are Internet-accessible, including Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), and Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC).

Private Connectivity to your VPC

Use AWS Direct Connect to establish a private, high bandwidth network connection from your on-premise network directly to your Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC). With multiple virtual interfaces, you can even establish private connectivity to multiple VPCs while maintaining network isolation.
