AWS Direct Connect has landed in three new cities – Vancouver, Manchester and Perth. Cologix VAN2, Vancouver provides dedicated access to the Canada (Central) AWS Region and to public AWS resources in other North America AWS Regions. Equinix MA3 in Manchester provides dedicated access to the EU West (London) AWS Region and NextDC Perth P1 to the Asia Pacific (Sydney) AWS Region.
Customers in Vancouver, Manchester and Perth 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.
