Take advantage of private, dedicated, high-throughput connectivity. Connect your on-premises data centers to vCloud Air or Cross Connect from co-located infrastructure for low latency, better security, and higher bandwidth.
Direct Connect is a private, high-throughput, dedicated connectivity option available with vCloud Air, in addition to standard VPN connection options. VMware works with leading network service providers (NSPs) to establish these high-throughput and secure links from customer data centers (either in a remote location or in the same colocation facility) to vCloud Air Dedicated Cloud, Disaster Recovery Cloud, or Virtual Private Cloud instances.
Direct Connect for Network Exchange supports key network service providers offering network exchange connections into select vCloud Air locations. Learn more about the benefits and the partners we support.
Your data center connectivity link needs to be reliable, safe, and fast from either your on-premises data center or co-located infrastructure to your vCloud Air environment. If you have applications that require high throughput and consistent network performance, your normal internet connection can result in contention issues. vCloud Air Direct Connect not only addresses this challenge but also helps you meet regulations that require you to have a secure, dedicated line between your data center and your cloud environment.
Enable smooth three tier applications, minimize your disaster recovery RTO, and quickly move large amounts of data between your data centers and vCloud Air with support for up to 10 Gbps connections for Dedicated Cloud and up to 1 Gbps for Disaster Recovery and Virtual Private Cloud.
Connection-oriented virtual circuits ensure packets arrive in the correct order improving performance for latency-sensitive applications such as voice/video and Desktop-as-a-Service.
Extend your corporate MPLS VPN to vCloud Air through a dedicated link, simplifying the network connectivity of distributed development teams and remote offices.
Expand the ways you can use your vCloud Air environment, such as connecting to specialized intrusion detection and prevention applicances, or custom storage solutions.
Direct Connect with Cross Connect supports both site-to-site private line connectivity as well as cross-connections from co-located infrastructure.
