EdgeConneX Deploys AWS Direct Connect in Phoenix

EdgeConneX has announced its deployment of AWS Direct Connect with both 10Gbps and 100Gbps capability at its Phoenix Edge Data Center® (PHX01). As an Amazon Web Services (AWS) Partner Network (APN) member,  AWS Direct Connect is also available in the company’s Portland Data Center Campus.

By layering the added flexibility of AWS Direct Connect in the EdgeConneX Phoenix data center, companies can advance their digital transformation strategies and application evolution by linking internal networks via direct point-to-point connections. This creates a secure, private cloud connection with access to both 10Gbps and 100Gbps AWS Direct Connect ports. 

Phillip Marangella, Chief Marketing and Product Officer at EdgeConneX:

“EdgeConneX customers are increasingly leveraging hybrid architecture solutions to address high bandwidth workloads, such as artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), and augmented and virtual reality (AR/VR). EdgeConneX is working with AWS to offer customers in Phoenix expanded workload transport options and improved scalability and reliability.”

Emad Benjamin, General Manager of AWS Direct Connect at AWS: 

“Emerging tech applications and cloud-based IT architectures require high availability and lower latency connectivity. With AWS Direct Connect in the EdgeConneX Phoenix data center, customers can create virtual interfaces directly to AWS and access services such as Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) and Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), allowing for increased security and consistent network experiences.”

Michael Reid, CEO for Megaport:

“Our customers with mission-critical applications require secure, on-premises infrastructure to meet optimal application performance. By leveraging AWS Direct Connect at the EdgeConneX Phoenix data center, our customers can benefit from low-latency connections to the cloud, essential to supporting the modern applications that power their businesses.”
