NEW – GIGABIT CONNECTIVITY OPTIONS FOR AMAZON DIRECT CONNECT
AWS Direct Connect gives you the ability to create private network connections between your datacenter, office, or colocation environment and AWS. The connections start at your network and end at one of 91 AWS Direct Connect locations and can reduce your network costs, increase throughput, and deliver a more consistent experience than an Internet-based connection. In most cases you will need to work with an AWS Direct Connect Partner to get your connection set up.As I prepared to write this post, I learned that my understanding of AWS Direct Connect was incomplete, and that the name actually encompasses three distinct models. Here’s a summary: Dedicated Connections are available with 1 Gbps and 10 Gbps capacity. You use the AWS Management Console to request a connection, after which AWS will review your request and either follow up via email to request additional information or provision a port for your connection. Once AWS has provisioned a port for you, the remaining time to complete the connection by the AWS Direct Connect Partner will vary between days and weeks. A Dedicated Connection is a physical Ethernet port dedicated to you. Each Dedicated Connection supports up to 50 Virtual Interfaces (VIFs). To get started, read Creating a Connection.
