AWS - Direct Connect

Dedicated private network connection to reduce network costs, provide high bandwidth and reliability through AWS Direct Connect

AWS Direct Connect

AWS Direct Connect is part of Sify’s suite of GlobalCloudConnect services. These services provide private connectivity (bypassing the open, more variable and vulnerable Internet) for your important workloads and transporting them in the cloud to all parts of the world

AWS Direct Connect makes it easy to establish a dedicated network connection from a customer’s premises to AWS. Using AWS Direct Connect, a customer can establish private connectivity between AWS and their datacenter, office, or colocation environment, which in many cases can reduce network costs, increase bandwidth throughput, and provide a more consistent network experience than Internet-based connections.
