AWS Direct Connect (AWS_DX) links internal networks to an AWS Direct Connect location over a standard Ethernet fiber-optic cable.
One end of the cable is connected to your router, the other to an AWS Direct Connect router. With this connection, virtual interfaces can be created directly to public AWS services (for example, to Amazon S3) or to Amazon VPC. This connection bypasses internet service providers in your network path.
An AWS Direct Connect location provides access to:
- AWS services in the region with which it is associated.
- Public AWS services in all other public regions when using a single connection in a public region or AWS GovCloud (US).
To set up the OpsRamp AWS integration and discover the AWS service,
