Can I split an AWS Direct Connect connection and assign specific bandwidths to different resources?


We're looking at using AWS Direct Connect to connect our on-premises data center with AWS. Is it possible to split the connection bandwidth between different resources and assign specific bandwidths to each resource?

For example: We have two workloads—production and development. Both workloads are used for ingesting data from on-premises Kafka using a Direct Connect connection. Is there a way to ensure that the development account consumes only 10% of the Direct Connect connection bandwidth and can't consume more, since going over 10% may affect the production workload?

Consider using two separate Direct Connect connections for each workload. Using two connections will allow you to assign a different bandwidth to each workload.
