Yes, Direct Connect allows you to create private network connections between your on-premises network and AWS. There are two primary ways to achieve this:

  • Private Virtual Interface: This option connects your network directly to a Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) within AWS. You’ll use private IP addresses for communication and benefit from secure and isolated network traffic.
  • AWS Direct Connect Gateway: This option enables you to connect your network to multiple VPCs across different AWS regions. It provides centralized management and simplifies connectivity for complex deployments.

Both methods offer a dedicated connection separate from the public internet, improving security, performance, and reliability. To establish the connection, you’ll need to choose an AWS Direct Connect Location, select an AWS Direct Connect endpoint, and configure the connection details on both sides.
