AWS Direct Connect is a cloud service that links your network directly to AWS to deliver consistent, low-latency performance. With AWS Direct Connect, you pay only for what you use and there is no minimum fee. There are no setup charges, and you may cancel at any time. However, services provided by AWS Direct Connect Delivery Partners may have other terms or restrictions that apply.

In any AWS Direct Connect deployment, there are three factors that determine pricing; capacity, port-hours, and data transfer out (DTO).

Capacity is the maximum rate that data can be transferred through a network connection. The capacity of AWS Direct Connect connections are measured in megabit per second (Mbps) or gigabit per second (Gbps). One gigabit per second, or 1 Gbps, is equal to 1,000 megabits per second (1,000 Mbps).

Port-hours measure the time that a port is provisioned for your use with AWS, or an AWS Direct Connect Delivery Partner’s, networking equipment inside an AWS Direct Connect location. Even when no data is passing through the port, you are charged for port-hours. Port-hour pricing is determined by the connection type: dedicated or hosted.

Dedicated connections are physical connections between your network port and an AWS network port inside an AWS Direct Connect location. Dedicated port-hours are billed as long as that port is provisioned for your use. You request a dedicated connection through the AWS Direct Connect section of the AWS Management Console.

Hosted connections are logical connections that an AWS Direct Connect Delivery Partner provisions on your behalf. When using hosted connections, you connect to the AWS network using one of the partner’s ports. You request a hosted connection by contacting an AWS Direct Connect Delivery Partner directly.

Data transfer out (DTO) refers to the cumulative network traffic that is sent through AWS Direct Connect to destinations outside of AWS. This is charged per gigabyte (GB), and unlike capacity measurements, DTO refers to the amount of data transferred, not the speed. When calculating DTO, exact pricing is dependent on the AWS Region and AWS Direct Connect location you are using (see tables below).

Data transfer in refers to network traffic that is sent into AWS from outside, over AWS Direct Connect. AWS Direct Connect data transfer in is charged at 0.00 USD per GB in all locations.

Except as otherwise noted, our prices are exclusive of applicable taxes and duties, including VAT and applicable sales tax. For customers with a Japanese billing address, use of the Asia Pacific (Tokyo) Region is subject to Japanese Consumption Tax. Learn more.

Port-hours: Dedicated Connections

Port-hour pricing for dedicated connections is consistent across all AWS Direct Connect locations globally, except in Japan. The table below lists the port-hour price by dedicated connection capacity selected.

Data transfer out (DTO) pricing for AWS Direct Connect

DTO pricing is dependent on the source AWS Region and AWS Direct Connect location. Start by choosing your AWS Direct Connect location from the relevant tab below to get USD per GB pricing for data transferred out from each AWS Region to an AWS Direct Connect location. Or, if you prefer, the full data transfer pricing table is available. If you are using an AWS Direct Connect gateway, you will pay applicable DTO data rates based on the AWS Region that is the source of the traffic and AWS Direct Connect location where it is connected.

Pricing examples

Example 1: An important workload that requires high resiliency

You work for a medium-sized manufacturing company that has migrated its inventory management system to AWS. This system is important to your ongoing operations but doesn’t need to process transactions in real time. Your monthly AWS Direct Connect bill will be the sum of port-hour and data transfer charges.

Calculating monthly port-hour charges for AWS Direct Connect

Let’s assume that, following the AWS Direct Connect resiliency recommendations, you worked with an AWS Direct Connect Delivery Partner to deploy a highly resilient architecture. This involved setting up one port at two separate AWS Direct Connect locations (one in Chicago, IL and a second in Columbus, OH). Both of these locations are associated with the US East (Ohio) AWS Region. At each location, you are always connected to a 2 Gbps (gigabit per second) Hosted port, even when no data is being sent or received.

* In this example we assume 8,760 hours in a year / 12 months = 730 hours

Calculating monthly data transfer charges for AWS Direct Connect

The source of your traffic is an Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) instance inside an Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) running in the US East (Ohio) Region. This EC2 instance sends 1 terabyte of data out of AWS each month and receives 2 terabytes of data from outside AWS.

Example 2: A workload that requires maximum resiliency

You are in charge of the global network for an up-and-coming gaming company and you must design for maximum resiliency. As in the preceding example, your monthly AWS Direct Connect bill will be the sum of the port-hour and data transfer charges generated by your workload.

Calculating monthly port-hour charges for AWS Direct Connect
Taking advice from AWS Direct Connect resiliency recommendations for designing for maximum resiliency, you created two port connections at two geographically separate AWS Direct Connect locations (one in Newark, NJ and a second in Columbus, OH). You are using an AWS Direct Connect gateway so you can access any AWS Region (except AWS Regions in China) from these AWS Direct Connect locations. At each location, you are always connected to your redundant 10 Gbps dedicated ports, even when no data is being sent or received. Most importantly, you have selected your port capacity so that if any links are interrupted, the others have enough excess capacity to smoothly take on the additional load.

Calculating monthly data transfer charges for AWS Direct Connect

Your outgoing traffic comes from 10 large Amazon VPCs located in the US East (Ohio) Region that transfer 400 terabytes of data out of AWS and on to your customers each month. Over the same period, 1 petabyte of data is sent to these VPCs from outside AWS using your AWS Direct Connect connections.
