AWS - Direct Connect

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

AWS is a fast, reliable and secure option among cloud storage service providers. AWS Direct Connect is part of Sify’s suite of Global Cloud Connect services ideal for hybrid cloud hosting. These services provide private connectivity (bypassing the open, more variable and vulnerable Internet) for your important workloads like hybrid cloud computing solutions and transporting them in the cloud to all parts of the world.

AWS Direct Connect rides on Sify’s MPLS architecture, making it easy to establish a dedicated network connection from your premises (Data Center, office or colocation environment) to AWS. This service in many cases can reduce your network costs, increase bandwidth throughput, and provide a more consistent network experience than Internet-based connections.

Global Cloud Connect Services for AWS Asia Pacific Region

AWS Direct Connect Services are available for the Asia Pacific region at two facilities in Mumbai: GPX Mumbai and Sify Rabale, Mumbai: over Sify's next-generation DWDM optical network, which is present at both locations. Customers can utilize various network services to enable private connectivity to the  Asia Pacific region.

You have two choices when choosing Sify DirectConnect Services from AWS to connect your enterprise network or other Data Centers where IT infrastructure is co-located

  1. Hosted GCC-AWS-Direct Connect Services
  2. Dedicated AWS-Direct Connect Services

Hosted AWS Direct Connect Service includes a resilient, 10G Sify interconnect with AWS. Our provider edge (PE) routers are interconnected with AWS routers and you can subscribe to IP/MPLS VPN services from Sify. Hosted connections do not require that you order a cross-connect into the AWS router. The traffic is routed to AWS over our aggregation connections.

Dedicated AWS Direct Connect Service is a good choice for customers with bandwidth requirements higher than 500 Mbps or if you want to set up a direct connection with AWS without using a VPN service. AWS offers two varieties of direct connect ports: 1G and 10G. Your implementation requires an interface between your router and the AWS router, which is engineered by Sify.
