How do I connect to Wasabi via Direct Connect

Introduction​  

Wasabi offers a private Direct Connect service comparable to Ethernet Private Line (EPL) and Direct Connects services that AWS, Azure, and GCP offer.   Wasabi Direct Connect (WDX) provides a customer with an alternative way of connecting to Wasabi other than via the public internet. This service can be delivered from a customer's data source (private or cloud) in a number of different network architectures along with the choice of cloud services provider that Wasabi supports described below.

Wasabi currently offers the customer the following Direct Connect options:

  • Wasabi Direct Connect (WDX) – A direct connect service provisioned from customer’s data center to one of the Wasabi data centers

  • Public/Private Cloud hosted Direct Connect (Virtual Circuit-VXC) – A direct connect service provisioned from the customer’s data center to a cloud provider network to one of the Wasabi data centers over that same cloud provider.

Additionally, Wasabi supports direct connect services that allow a customer to connect their cloud providers storage service to one of Wasabi’s  data centers.  This service provides the L2/L3 transport service for data migration from one cloud storage provider to Wasabi applying our supported migration tools.

The following options are available for customers that want to create an AWS direct connect service connection between their AWS S3 account and a Wasabi data center:

  • AWS Direct Connect via MegaPort

  • AWS Direct Connect via Equinix Cloud Exchange (ECX)

(Other cloud providers including Azure and GCP can be considered upon further analysis)
