Benefits of an AWS Connection at 165 Halsey Street

By now, you’ve likely heard that 165 Halsey Street has established a dedicated network connection from its premises to Amazon Web Services (AWS) Direct Connect. This is certainly an important capability for 165 Halsey Street’s current and future tenants, but it is a possibility that folks may have some questions about our latest announcement, so we’ve drafted the below as a sort of FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions).

What is AWS?

Amazon Web Services, AWS, 165 Halsey Street, Connectivity, Direct Connect

Amazon Web Services (AWS) is a subsidiary of Amazon.com that provides on-demand cloud computing platforms to individuals, companies and other organizations via a paid subscription. A multitude of solutions are accessible via AWS, such as compute, storage, database, migration, network and content delivery and a whole lot more.

What is AWS Direct Connect?

AWS Direct Connect allows for easy access from your premises to AWS. Direct Connect establishes private connectivity between AWS and a given data center, office or colocation space and grants facilities and their tenants the ability to access all AWS solution offerings.

How does a connection to AWS benefit current and future 165 Halsey Street tenants?

There are actually quite a few benefits of a connection to AWS for current and future 165 Halsey Street tenants. At the highest level, a connection to AWS often means reduced network costs, increased bandwidth throughput and a more consistent network experience than non-cloud, internet-based connections. Here are some of the other major benefits of note:

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.

Bandwidth Cost Reduction: 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.

AWS Compatibility: 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).

Why is a connection to AWS important for those looking into data center / colocation services?

Any enterprise that is interested in maintaining the security and control of on-premises infrastructure and deploy hybrid clouds through direct interconnection should be very excited about AWS Direct Connect because it grants dedicated, high-performance, private access to the enterprise’s AWS applications and workloads at the global level.

Want to find out more?

Contact us via email or phone, at simone@tishman.com or 212-399-3633 today. Our team is happy to discuss the above benefits and answer any questions that you have specific to your business and how AWS Direct Connect can help you succeed.
