When to use AWS Direct Connect

With AWS Direct Connect, you can transfer data directly from your data center, office, or colocation environment into and out of AWS. This connection bypasses the public internet to help decrease network congestion and unpredictability.

Availability Zone redundancy

Every AWS Region is made up of multiple physically separated and isolated Availability Zones that are connected over low-latency, high-throughput, and highly redundant networks. When you make a connection to an AWS Region, either directly or through an AWS Direct Connect Gateway, Availability Zone redundancy is provided by default. As a result, your connections automatically fail over between Availability Zones without interruption. Availability Zone redundancy is included at no cost for every AWS Direct Connect circuit.

AWS Direct Connect gateway

An AWS Direct Connect gateway allows you to connect to Amazon Virtual Private Clouds (VPCs) that reside in any AWS Region from any AWS Direct Connect location. You can create an AWS Direct Connect gateway in any Region and access it from all other Regions.
