Announcing New AWS Direct Connect Locations in Kuala Lumpur and Seoul

Posted On: Jun 27, 2017

AWS Direct Connect now has two new locations in LG U+ Pyeong-Chon Mega Center, Seoul, South Korea, and Menara AIMS, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia supporting the Asia Pacific (Seoul) and Asia Pacific (Singapore) AWS Regions respectively. Customers in these cities can now establish a dedicated network connection from their premise to AWS.

Using AWS Direct Connect, you can establish private connectivity between AWS and your datacenter, office, or colocation environment, which in many cases can reduce your network costs, increase bandwidth throughput, and provide a more consistent network experience than Internet-based connections. Connections are always made to a particular Direct Connect location, and can run at either 1 Gbps or 10 Gbps, or work with a partner to connect at speeds less than 1G.
