DENVER and MINNEAPOLIS, Dec. 22, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Cologix, a network neutral interconnection and data center company, announced today the availability of Amazon Web Services (AWS) Direct Connect service in its MIN3 data center. Customers in the upper Midwest planning to build hybrid cloud deployments with AWS can now leverage AWS Direct Connect services in Minneapolis. With AWS Direct Connect, customers can connect to AWS via a private connection to improve performance and reduce costs.
The Minneapolis deployment of AWS Direct Connect with Cologix, provides customers high-speed, private access to the AWS US East (Ohio) Region. With a single physical connection, customers can use the new Direct Connect Gateway feature to establish connectivity to their Amazon VPCs spread across multiple AWS Regions. This location is ideal for both AWS end customers and AWS Partner Network (APN) Partners to connect given the density of interconnection options and enterprise grade infrastructure. As one of the leading data centers and largest interconnection providers in Minneapolis, Cologix provides connectivity to 100+ unique networks and direct access to the Minnesota Internet Cooperative Exchange (MICE).
"We are pleased to add Minneapolis as the fourth AWS Direct Connect node in the Cologix solution, along with Columbus, Montreal and Vancouver. Minneapolis has long been an attractive alternative to more congested markets like Chicago and is home to the highest number of Fortune 500 companies per capita in the country," stated Wayne Dietrich, Chief Sales Officer at Cologix. "We applaud AWS's forward thinking to broaden the number of AWS Direct Connect nodes to reach large and sophisticated enterprises in markets like Minneapolis."
In addition to the native onramps in Minneapolis, Columbus, Montreal and Vancouver, Cologix's Cloud Connect Platform provides its customers in Dallas, Northern New Jersey and Toronto direct access to AWS Direct Connect locations within those markets. Additionally, all Cologix customers have a broad choice of multiple APN Partners to access AWS Direct Connect locations in other markets. Cologix's Cloud Connect Platform provides on-ramp solutions to the cloud, more direct connections to best-in-breed cloud service providers and access to independent Internet exchanges.
