We are thrilled to announce 2 new AWS Direct Connect locations. The new locations are at EdgeConneX in Portland Oregon (supporting our Oregon region), and Global Switch in Singapore (supporting our Singapore region). This brings our total location count up to 26.

You can use AWS Direct Connect to create a dedicated network connection from your datacenter, office, or colocation environment to AWS. Connections are always made to a particular Direct Connect location, and can run at either 1 Gbps or 10 Gbps, or work with a partner to connect at speeds less than 1G.

Instructions on how to set up AWS Direct Connect are available in our AWS Direct Connect Users Guide. Sign in to your AWS Management Console to order AWS Direct Connect today!
