Today, AWS announced the opening of a new AWS Direct Connect location in Hamburg, Germany. By connecting your network to AWS at the new location, you gain private, direct access to all public AWS Regions (except those in China), AWS GovCloud Regions, and AWS Local Zones.
The new Hamburg location offers dedicated 1 Gbps and 10 Gbps connections, with MACsec encryption available for 10 Gbps. Using this new Direct Connect location to reach resources running in the Hamburg AWS Local Zone is an ideal solution for applications that require single-digit millisecond latency or local data processing.
The Direct Connect service establishes a private, physical network connection between AWS and your data center, office, or colocation environment. These private connections can provide a more consistent network experience than those made over the public internet. Using the Direct Connect SiteLink feature, you can send data between Direct Connect locations to create private network connections between the offices and data centers in your global network.
