AppHUB™ Shortcut | Free AWS Direct Connect Extention

A Better Way to Connect to AWS. Bringing the Cloud Down to Earth.

AppHUB Shortcut for AWS makes Direct Connect even easier for you to access AWS from your remote network. Shortcut enables you to connect your datacenter or office to your Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) and other Amazon resources like EC2 & S3 via a secure private connection. The result is a more consistent connectivity experience that can grow your firm’s AWS capabilities and enable applications with stricter network performance standards to be hosted in the cloud. Shortcut restricts AWS data transit via the internet by over 90%, securely directing traffic to a local AppHUB Internet Gateway near you. Shortcut can run on an existing broadband connection for quick and easy provisioning. See AppHUB for stronger connectivity options.
