AWS Direct Connect

Optimize your hybrid IT environment with direct cloud connection


Choose the Fast Lane Into AWS

AWS Direct Connect, a dedicated network connection, allows you to connect your CoreSite on-premises infrastructure and AWS directly within our data centers. This secure, native onramp extends your IT operations into the cloud, where you can take advantage of data storage or run production workloads.

Why risk using the public internet when this alternative delivers high-value outcomes? Achieve optimal network performance based on private, low-latency connectivity, reduce data transfer costs and improve security.

Interconnection FAQs

Frequently asked questions about interconnection products and services, access and more.
WHAT IS COLOCATION? A colocation data center is a physical facility that offers space with the proper power, cooling, network access and security to host businesses’ computing hardware and servers. This capacity includes anything from cabinets to cages to private suites. 
WHAT ARE REMOTE HANDS SERVICES? In addition to power, cooling, network connectivity and security, colocation providers typically offer IT equipment installation and other similar services that are performed by data center operations personnel. CoreSite also offers cabling and wiring services including making cross connections, physical links between customers. 
WHAT IS A CARRIER HOTEL? Colocation data centers are sometimes referred to as “carrier hotels” because many telecommunications services providers (carriers) install networking equipment in them enabling interconnection, often between long-haul carriers and metro-carriers, using the facilities as centralized locations to connect and exchange data. 
WHAT IS A MEET-ME ROOM? A meet-me room (MMR) is a place in a data center where multiple telecommunications companies (carriers) and network service providers (NSPs) interconnect, ensuring seamless transfer of data between colocation clients and carriers, including internet traffic.
DO THIRD-PARTY DATA CENTERS HOST CLOUDS? Yes, colocation data centers can host clouds. Customers in data centers install their infrastructure equipment there, including servers that can deliver cloud capabilities. 
WHAT IS CLOUD OR APPLICATION REPATRIATION? Cloud repatriation is the practice of retrieving applications or workloads from public clouds and moving them back into an on-premises data center or a third-party data center.
