Megaport has announced support for Google Cloud’s Partner Interconnect, a service enabling customers to privately connect to the Google Cloud Platform from anywhere.
Google Cloud’s Partner Interconnect is a new product in the internet specialist’s Google Cloud Interconnect range. Last September, Google announced Dedicated Interconnect, a sevice providing higher-speed and lower-cost connectivity than VPN, which is fast becoming the go-to offering used to connect on-premises data centres with the cloud.
With Partner Interconnect, customers can now choose Megaport to provide connectivity from their facility to the nearest Google edge Point of Presence. In addition, they will be able to select from a variety of sub-rate interface speeds varying from 50 Megabits per second to 10 Gigabits per second.
This deeper integration between the Megaport SDN and Google Cloud, enables ease-of-use and smooth provisioning of network capacity to Google Virtual Private Clouds.
Partner Interconnect is now available across Megaport’s SDN which connects some 200 data centres globally with multiple interconnect points already established.
“Scalable connectivity to Google Cloud Platform ensures that cloud-enabled applications perform to meet mission-critical business requirements,” said Megaport CEO Vincent English. “ We have been working with Google Cloud since our inception and we are excited to grow and evolve our integration to ensure the next generation of business growth.”
