165 Halsey Street is one of the newest AWS Direct Connect locations supporting the U.S. East (Northern Virginia) Amazon Web Services (AWS) Region. Existing and future customers at 165 Halsey Street can now establish a dedicated network connection from their premises to AWS.
Using AWS Direct Connect, customers 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. Below are some additional service highlights of AWS Direct Connect:
- Speed & Privacy: AWS Direct Connect enables customers to establish private data connections to AWS that bypass the Internet. Avoiding public networks improves performance, reduces costs, increases privacy and ensures consistent throughput.
- Reduces bandwidth costs: AWS Direct Connect reduces network costs into and out of AWS in two ways. First, by transferring data to and from AWS directly, reducing your bandwidth commitment to the Internet service provider. Second, while inbound data transfer to AWS is not charged, outbound data transfer from AWS is charged at the reduced AWS Direct Connect data transfer rate rather than Internet data transfer rates.
- Compatible withal AWS services: AWS Direct Connect is a network service, and works with all AWS services that are accessible over the Internet, such as Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), and Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC).
“As more enterprises seek to maintain the security and control of on-premises infrastructure and deploy hybrid clouds through direct interconnection, we are excited to meet this industry demand and provide our customers access to AWS Direct Connect,” states Joseph Simone, president at Tishman Real Estate Services for 165 Halsey Street. “With the introduction of AWS Direct Connect, our customers can immediately benefit from dedicated, high performance, private access to their AWS applications and workloads across the globe.”
