Amazon Direct Connect “directly connects” your network to AWS Cloud for consistent, low-latency performance by bypassing the public internet. It helps to reduce bandwidth costs, and secures your data as it moves between your on-premises infrastructure and AWS Cloud.
You can utilize Amazon Direct Connect to connect multiple offices or data centers, or to connect these offices or data centers to the AWS Cloud, helping you to create secure and efficient hybrid deployment infrastructure.
AWS Direct Connect is considered the “shortest path” between your on-premises infrastructure and the AWS Cloud, so it could speed up large data transfers like rapid data backup.
