AWS Direct Connect traffic from on-prem DC to remote AWS Region


My customer wants to connect datacenter in Germany to us-west-2 AWS. They are considering a Direct Connect partner and the question is how to get traffic into us-west-2.

Would Direct Connect Gateway solve this problem? As far as I understand Direct Conncet Gateway will allow on-prem to connect to any region on AWS.

Any limitations other than what's called out in FAQ?

Accepted Answer

Correct - a Direct Connect Gateway will allow your customer to connect to VPCs in any AWS Region, via a Direct Connect location in Germany.

You can attach up to 10 VGWs per Direct Connect Gateway; more limits information is in our docs here.
