AWS Direct Connect launches first location in Israel
AWS Direct Connect is now live at MedOne in Haifa, Israel. This is the first AWS Direct Connect location in Israel. Customers in Israel can now locally establish a dedicated network connection from their on-premises to AWS. Using AWS Direct Connect, you can establish private connectivity between AWS and your datacenter, office, or colocation environment, which in many cases can reduce your network costs, increase bandwidth throughput, and provide a more consistent network experience than Internet-based connections. With global access for AWS Direct Connect, you can reach AWS resources in any global AWS region from any AWS Direct Connect locations using global public virtual interface(s) and Direct Connect gateway. When connecting to any AWS region, your data will not hairpin via the associated AWS region for the location if it is not in the shortest path to your desired AWS region.
