Interxion Offers AWS Direct Connect from European Data Centers

INTERXION is now offering AWS Direct Connect from its 32 data centres across 11 countries in Europe.

AWS Direct Connect allows customers to establish private connectivity between the AWS platform in the cloud and their existing dedicated IT infrastructure, which can reduce network costs, increase bandwidth throughput, and provide a more consistent network experience than Internet-based connections.

The new services is carried over Level 3's network from the INTERXION data center to Amazon Web Services (AWS).

INTERXION said AWS Direct Connect will be particularly attractive to customers that use large data sets and real time data feeds or need to satisfy regulatory requirements by using private network connections.


“We have provided Interxion customers with the ability to connect to our global network for years,” said James Heard, Level 3’s regional president of EMEA. “We’re delighted to be strengthening this relationship by enabling connectivity to AWS Direct Connect from Interxion’s European city locations.”

 “AWS Direct Connect helps our customers to build hybrid cloud solutions between their dedicated IT infrastructures and the AWS platform more effectively by providing cost, security and performance control”, said Vincent in‘t Veld, Director Cloud Segment at Interxion. “This supports the wider IT transformation process by allowing organisations to further maximise their IT efficiency. Thanks to the presence of leading network service providers such as Level 3, AWS Direct Connect can now be accessed by our customer community across our entire data centre footprint.”

  • AWS operates its major European data center in Dublin.
  • AWS Direct Connect uses 802.1q VLANs. The dedicated connection can be partitioned into multiple virtual interfaces, enabling the same connection to access public resources such as objects stored in Amazon S3 using public IP address space, and private resources such as Amazon EC2 instances running within an Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) using private IP space, while maintaining network separation between the public and private environments. Virtual interfaces can be reconfigured at any time.  Rates up to 10G are available.
  • Equiix, Telx and Hibernia Atlantic have all recently announced AWS Direct Connect services.
