AWS Direct Connect Improves Performance, Reduces Costs, Increases Security
AWS Direct Connect allows Equinix customers to connect their corporate IT infrastructure directly to Amazon Web Services through a private fiber optic connection.
By bypassing the public Internet, you can improve performance, reduce costs, increase security, and leverage cloud computing for more applications. With AWS Direct Connect, you can treat AWS instances as part of your data center LAN, allowing full integration between cloud services and your internal applications.
Available from a number of Equinix IBX® data centers, AWS Direct Connect is currently offered in the greater metropolitan areas of Washington DC/Northern Virginia, Silicon Valley, Singapore, and Tokyo, and provides connectivity to the AWS regions in Virginia, northern California, Singapore and Tokyo.
