Today, AWS announced the opening of a new AWS Direct Connect location within the NEC Inzai data center in Inzai, Japan. By connecting your network to AWS at the new Inzai location, you gain private, direct access to all public AWS Regions (except those in China), AWS GovCloud Regions, and AWS Local Zones.

The Direct Connect service creates 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. The Inzai location is the fourth in Japan, offering dedicated 1 Gbps, 10 Gbps, and 100 Gbps connections, with MACsec encryption available for 10 Gbps and 100 Gbps connections.
