Amazon Snowball is a possible option you can read more about it here
http://docs.aws.amazon.com/AWSImportExport/latest/ug/whatissnowball.html
AWS Import/Export is a service that accelerates transferring large amounts of data into and out of AWS using physical storage appliances, bypassing the Internet. AWS Import/Export has two features that support this functionality in two different ways, AWS Snowball (Snowball) and AWS Import/Export Disk (Disk).

I was hoping for some kind of server to service connection.

Server to service connection? If you are talking about AWS Direct Connect  it's not the case for it.

Data Transfer IN To Amazon S3 is free. Your 2097152 PUT requests (200 GB = 209715200 KB = 209715200 KB / 100 KB) will cost you 10$, if you need each of the files as an object, so it doesn't matter how you upload those files.

You will not be able to use multipart upload APIs for multiple threads in parallel for objects less than 15MB,

I think a faster way is to fire up a free EC2 micro instance, upload zip archives there, unzip, and then PUT those files to S3 from EC2.

I also heard about www.cloudzipinc.com but I haven't had an opportunity to try it myself yet.

Of course your connection speed to the Internet/AWS is going to factor in how long its going to take to upload,

200GBytes on a 100Mbit link is probably going to take in excess of 10 Hours
