AWS Direct Connect Plus VPN - Amazon Virtual Private Cloud Connectivity Options

AWS Direct Connect Plus VPN

With AWS Direct Connect plus VPN, you can combine one or more AWS Direct Connect dedicated network connections with the Amazon VPC VPN. This combination provides an IPsec-encrypted private connection that also reduces network costs, increases bandwidth throughput, and provides a more consistent network experience than internet-based VPN connections.

You can use AWS Direct Connect to establish a dedicated network connection between your network create a logical connection to public AWS resources, such as an Amazon virtual private gateway IPsec endpoint. This solution combines the AWS managed benefits of the VPN solution with low latency, increased bandwidth, more consistent benefits of the AWS Direct Connect solution, and an end-to-end, secure IPsec connection.

The following figure illustrates this option.
