AWS Direct Connect has added new locations in Paris at Interxion PAR7 and in Taipei at Chunghwa Telecom. In the Management Console, these sites can be found under their respective home regions of EU West (Paris) and Asia Pacific (Tokyo). With global access for AWS Direct Connect, these sites can reach AWS resources in any global AWS region using global public VIFs and Direct Connect Gateway. Customers connecting to any AWS region will not have their data hairpin via the home regions if it is not in the shortest path to their desired AWS region.
