AWS Direct Connect makes it easy to establish a dedicated network connection from your private network to Amazon Web Services (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 throughput and provide a more consistent network experience than Internet-based connections.
Through these dedicated connections Masergy has established with Amazon, customers can be partitioned into one or more virtual interfaces. This allows customers to use the virtual interfaces to access public resources such as objects stored in Amazon S3 using public IP address space, and private resources such as Amazon EC2 instances running within an Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) using private IP space, while maintaining network separation between the public and private environments. Virtual interfaces can be reconfigured at any time to meet your changing needs.
Consistent Network Performance
Network latency over the Internet can vary given that the Internet is constantly changing how data gets from point A to B. With AWS Direct Connect, you choose the data that utilizes the dedicated connection and how that data is routed which can provide a more consistent network experience over Internet-based connections.
Compatible with all AWS Services
AWS Direct Connect is a network service, and works with all AWS services that are accessible over the Internet, such as Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), and Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC).
Private Connectivity to your Amazon VPC
You can use AWS Direct Connect to establish a private virtual interface from your MPLS network directly to your Amazon VPC, providing you with a private, high bandwidth network connection between your network and your VPC. With multiple virtual interfaces, you can even establish private connectivity to multiple VPCs while maintaining network isolation. Speeds available are: 50M, 100M, 200M, 300M, 400M, 500M, 1G and 10G.
