  • Storage gateway (File gateway) vs Direct Connect

    Would be better to use Storage gateway or Direct connect.

    I feel Direct connect is the right option if speed and privacy are the main requirements. And Storage gateway is the way to go if the main objective is price. Is this right?

    Hello vinodache,

    Thanks for your question.

    Direct Connect and Storage gateway was built for different purposes. With that said, You should not be thinking that one service is better than the other. It’s like comparing apples and oranges. Direct connect is mainly used to establish a dedicated private connection between an on-premises network and AWS network. This could provide a higher bandwidth than your standard ISP. Storage Gateway on the other hand is for hybrid cloud storage. This service can help you in situations where you want to save on storage costs by moving some/most of your data to AWS Cloud with low-latency access (just as though you’re accessing them within the same disk).

    Let me know if this answers your question.

    Regards,
    Carlo @ Tutorials Dojo
