Google Cloud announces Dedicated Interconnect to aid cloud migration
Google want to make it easier for businesses to connect to the cloud
Google has announced Dedicated Interconnect, a new and easier way for companies to connect to Google Cloud.
It allows organisations to create a private network connection to the Google Cloud Platform (GCP) through a "Dedicated Interconnect location".
John Veizades, product manager at Dedicated Interconnect, wrote in the announcement: "If you work with large or real-time data sets, Dedicated Interconnect can also help you control how that data is routed."
Dedicated Interconnect is available in 10 GB/s increments and users can select from one to eight circuits from the Cloud Console.
It's available in many locations such as the UK, Germany and Taiwan. In order for it to work, your network must physically meet Google's network in a supported colocation facility.
Veizades said: "Once connected, the Google network provides access to all GCP regions using a private fiber network that connects more than 100 points of presence around the globe."
In August, GCP announced a tiered cloud network, and claimed it was the first major public cloud to do this. It allowed users to choose between two tiers, Premium tier or the cheaper Standard tier. The Premium tier uses Google Network to deliver outbound traffic whereas the Standard tier uses the public internet to do this instead.
