AWS Direct Connect is now live at Equinix NY5, Secaucus, NJ. This location offers logical redundancy over a single virtual interface (VIF) on a Direct Connect connection. Logical redundancy can reduce downtime when a BGP peering session goes down due to a device failure or maintenance activity on the AWS side. With global access for AWS Direct Connect, you can reach AWS resources in any global AWS region using global public VIFs and Direct Connect gateway. When connecting to any AWS region, your data will not hairpin via the home region if it is not in the shortest path to your desired AWS region.
