AWS Direct Connect is now live at CDLAN srl Via Caldera 21, Milano. This is the first AWS Direct Connect location in Italy. Customers in Milan can now locally establish a dedicated network connection from their premises to AWS. This location can be found in the Management Console. With global access for AWS Direct Connect, you can reach AWS resources in any global AWS region from any of the above locations using global public VIFs and Direct Connect Gateway. When connecting to any AWS region, your data will not hairpin via the home region if it is not in the shortest path to your desired AWS region.
As with any AWS Direct Connect location, this locations conform to the standard resiliency model that includes two customer facing devices per location that allow customers to establish locally resilient and redundant phyiscal connectivity to the Amazon backbone network. Please take a look at our resiliency recommendations when planning your connectivity. 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.
Please see the AWS Direct Connect website for details on our locations, their associated home regions, the support of logical redundancy and pricing. All AWS Direct Connect locations give access to all global AWS Regions (except China) as shown in our region table. Customers can get dedicated 1Gbps or 10Gbps connections or work with a partner for connections with speeds less than 1Gbps.
