Hybrid Architect to connect On-premises data center with AWS.

Overview VPN and Direct Connect.

AWS Direct Connect

AWS Direct Connect allows you to establish a direct link from your data center to specific AWS Direct Connect access points.  

Key benefits of direct connect are:

1. Consistent performance using dedicated bandwidth from your data center to AWS location

2. Lower bandwidth costs - instead of paying for internet access rates, direct connect access is charged at lower direct connect access rates

3. Dedicated private connection between your data center and VPC
