EdgeConneX, a pioneer in global Hyperlocal to Hyperscale Data Center Solutions, has announced the deployment of Amazon Web Services (AWS) Direct Connect 100Gbps capability at the company’s Portland Edge Data Center campus.

An AWS Partner Network (APN) member since 2016, the EdgeConneX 100Gbps AWS Direct Connect service expands connection options from 1Gbps and 10Gbps to now include 100Gbps, enabling high availability and lower latency access to the largest, most data-intensive applications, such as Augmented Reality (AR), Virtual Reality (VR), Machine Learning (ML), Blockchain and the Internet of Things (IoT). 

Access to 100Gbps ports to AWS Direct Connect in the Portland Edge Data Center improves performance, cost and security, while simultaneously enabling the most data-heavy workloads and functions to be implemented and managed most efficiently.

“As emerging data-heavy applications and technologies transition from the lab to the marketplace, access to those applications via traditional lower bandwidth port speeds simply isn’t good enough,” said Anton Radlein, General Manager, AWS Direct Connect, AWS.

“Deploying AWS Direct Connect at 100Gbps at the EdgeConneX facility in Portland is essential to helping customers build data-heavy applications with increased flexibility, scalability and reliability. We’re excited to see the value it brings to our mutual customers.”
