Storage Gateway VS AWS Direct Connect

Greetings, I would like to clarify main difference between Storage Gateway and AWS Direct Connect. From description I know that first one is actually storage service, while second is network connection, but probably there are more details than just descriptions. Any use cases, examples? Thank you for support.

Hi There, What I was able to gather from the lesson and AWS DOCS:
1. AWS Direct Connect is a network service that provides an alternative to using the Internet to connect customer’s on-premise sites to AWS(

2. AWS Storage Gateway is a hybrid cloud storage service that gives you on-premises access to virtually unlimited cloud storage
