AWS announces new AWS Direct Connect location in Honolulu, Hawaii



Today, AWS announced the opening of a new [AWS Direct Connect]( location within the Aloha NAP data center in Honolulu, Hawaii. By connecting your network to AWS at the new Hawaii location, you gain private, direct access to all public AWS Regions (except those in China), AWS GovCloud Regions, and [AWS Local Zones]( This is the first AWS Direct Connect site within Hawaii and the 42nd site in the United States. The Direct Connect service enables you to establish a private, physical network connection between AWS and your data center, office, or colocation environment. These private connections can provide a more consistent network experience than those made over the public internet. The new Direct Connect location in Hawaii offers dedicated 10 Gbps and 100 Gbps connections with MACsec encryption available.
