AWS Direct Connect
Create a dedicated network connection to AWS
Improve application performance by connecting directly to AWS and bypassing the public internet.
Secure your data as it moves between your network and AWS with multiple encryption options.
Reduce your networking costs with low data transfer rates out of AWS.
How it works
Build hybrid networks
Link your AWS and on-premises networks to build applications that span environments without compromising performance.
Extend your existing network
Once you link your network to AWS Direct Connect, you can use SiteLink to send data between your locations. When using SiteLink, data travels over the shortest path between locations.
Manage large datasets
Ensure smooth and reliable data transfers at massive scale for real-time analysis, rapid data backup, or broadcast media processing.
