Using AWS Cloud Services reliably and cost-effectively is easy with AWS Direct Connect: The network solution offered by T-Systems helps companies to securely and smoothly connect their locations (e.g. branches or data centers) to the AWS cloud – without having to take a detour via the less reliable internet.
Two-thirds of all companies in Germany are now using cloud computing according to a 2019 Cloud Monitor study by Bitkom Research. In addition to private clouds, businesses are also increasingly choosing market leader AWS for their cloud mix. Many of the more advanced applications are very demanding when it comes to data transmission between the cloud and the company network. The public internet cannot offer the performance that connecting an on-premises company network with the AWS-hosted company network demands.
With AWS Direct Connect – as part of its AWS Networking Services – T-Systems offers a hosted direct connect virtual IP interface for the high-performance connection of company locations to the AWS Cloud. This ensures that companies are securely and reliably connected to the AWS Cloud at all times via a robust, dedicated interconnection (peering). This interconnection is offered over the network layer (OSI layer 3) using the BGP protocol and over the physical and data layers (OSI layers 1 and 2).
This means that companies can rely on a resilient and high-performance network connection when deploying their hybrid applications. In addition, all business data is transmitted securely, cost-efficiently and in the required quality between the AWS cloud and the corporate network. Thanks to a complete end-to-end network connection, both the cloud networking products and the traditional network products from T-Systems and Deutsche Telekom are supported.
