AWS Direct Connect now has three new locations in the Digital Realty ATL1 and ATL2, Atlanta facility, Cologix COL2 Columbus, OH facility, and Allied 250 Front St W, Toronto, Canada facility supporting the US East (Virginia), US East (Ohio) and Canada (Central) AWS Regions respectively. Customers in these cities can now establish a dedicated network connection from their premise 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. 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!
