AWS Direct Connect via Platform Equinix offers unparalleled benefits for cloud infrastructures. Orchestrate business applications and data across multiple locations with performance, security and scale. Choose a Dedicated Connections Model supporting up to 50 Virtual Interfaces (VIFs) or a 1, 2, 5, or 10 Gbps Hosted Connection enabling you to scale high-speed, virtual AWS interconnection worldwide.

Direct Connect enables you to migrate workloads requiring higher connection speeds with lower latency for:

  • Databases (e.g. Oracle, Microsoft SQL, etc.) by leveraging AWS tools
  • Migration of on-premises VMware and SAP applications (e.g. HANA) to AWS
  • Hybrid and multicloud architecture for mission-critical applications, especially those based on VMware and SAP
  • Business continuity and disaster recovery environments
