Amazon Web Services (AWS)

With 18 Equinix facilities around the world offering AWS Direct Connect services, Equinix provides the most ways to get high-performance private access to the world's most popular cloud service. In Equinix data centers, AWS Direct Connect customers can cut data transfer costs to AWS by two to ten times, depending on data volume.

Benefits

  • Move large volumes of data in and out of AWS—faster, more securely and at a much lower cost than using public network connections.
  • Achieve predictable network performance and deliver a more consistent end-user experience.
  • Workloads that require occasional bandwidth bursts, such as backups, will benefit from higher performance when bandwidth needs spike and from reduced connection costs when bandwidth needs are low.

  • Use with other AWS services, including Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3), Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC) and Amazon Relational Database (RDS).
  • Extend your current data center environment into the cloud using the same IP addressing scheme, operating as if the cloud were in your data center.
  • Leverage AWS for data migration and replication to satisfy business continuity, disaster recovery and data retention requirements

Direct, Seamless Connections

AWS Direct Connect lets you establish private data connections that bypass the public Internet. Bypassing public networks improves performance, reduces costs, increases security, ensures consistent throughput and enables many hybrid cloud use cases. With AWS Direct Connect inside Equinix, AWS instances work seamlessly with your data center LAN, allowing full integration between cloud services and your internal applications.

Multiple connection speeds:

  • Fiber-optic cross connects provide either 1- or 10-gigabits-per-second connections
  • Virtual connections via Equinix Cloud Exchange, providing a flexible range of speeds (50, 100, 200, 300, 400 and 500 megabits per second).
