AWS Direct Connect

Experience a controlled, scalable, and flexible connection to AWS Direct Connect.

Cloud Connect for AWS Direct Connect

Cloud Connect provides customers with the controlled, flexible and scalable private network connectivity to Amazon Web Services Direct Connect locations. 

Our Cloud Connect service provides customers with a 1 or 10 Gigabits per second (Gbps) dedicated-port connected to an AWS Direct Connect location over Arelion’s award winning backbone. 

Architect for control

Configure your service to match your redundancy needs. With Arelion’s multiple points-of-presence and extensive network, you can choose the right service to suit your needs. Cloud Connect allows you to connect to multiple Direct Connect on-ramps within an AWS region for maximum redundancy and gain control over a well-architected framework.

AWS network locations

Cloud Connect is available for dedicated 1G or 10G port connections to AWS Direct Connect locations over Arelion’s award winning backbone network. (Exceptions may occur.)

Arelion was able to guide Ankama through the AWS Direct Connect set-up process and co-ordinate the delivery of dedicated connectivity using Arelion’s network - an effortless experience.
