AWS Direct Connect is a cloud service solution that makes it easy to establish a dedicated network connection from your premises to AWS. Using AWS Direct Connect, you can establish private connectivity between AWS and your datacenter, office, or colocation environment, which in many cases can reduce your network costs, increase bandwidth throughput, and provide a more consistent network experience than Internet-based connections.
Things to remember
- Direct connect directly connects our data center to AWS.
- Useful for high throughput workloads (is lots of network traffic) or
- If you need a stable and reliable secure connection.
