The Amazon Web Service users are provided with a physical connection of their AWS services with a physical insfrastructure in Master DC data centres. The data flowing between both locations thus do not need to use the public internet, so that a higher level of services and security are ensured.
Datasheet: AWS Direct Connect
Final price includes 4 items:
- Price of services in our data centre – most freqently server housing and/or dedicated server
- Prices of your AWS services
- Direct connect with AWS – depending on the speed and line type from 10.000 CZK
- Price for BGP set-up infrastructure – individual; you can purchase the set-up on your own
Speed of the device depends on individual needs and configuration. Is approximately in the range of several days to weeks.
Who might be benefitting from a hybrid infrastructure?
Specific hardware requirements
You cannot connect your own hardware into public cloud. If you have specific requirements for hardware, possibly due to testing and/or hardware key connection, this hardware might be placed into MasterDC data centre and, with the use of Direct Connect, might connect to AWS.
Compliance with legal requirements
Owing to legal and/or legislative reasons some data must not leave the Czech Republic. As for the hybrid infrastructure, you will soon discover that your data are safe with the Czech provider, and at the same time you might use an infrastructure of multinational public cloud.
Confidential data deciphering
Confidential data are often encrypted in public clouds. To decipher them it is advisable to have your own server into which the data are – via AWS Direct Connect – transferred and deciphered.
Optimisation of purchased licenses
Concerning software, the licence policy often does not allow it to be run on the cloud. Eventually, this way of functioning is not economical; the companies thus try to find a solution so that the already purchased licences are optimised.
In case of line failure, for instance due to unintentional cable breach during construction work, the line automatically shifts to internet connection. As a result, the AWS connect is not disrupted, it only becomes slower with a common latency.
