IT Intelligence Bulletin (HG Insights) — Interxion has announced that dedicated access to Google Cloud Platform (GCP) is now available across its European footprint through Cloud Connect, Interxion’s multi-cloud interconnection platform.
With Google Cloud deploying its Cloud Interconnect points of presence (PoPs) in Interxion’s Paris Marseille, Frankfurt and Stockholm data centres, customers can now directly connect to Google Cloud Platform from these locations. Moreover, because Interxion is a partner of Google Cloud’s newly launched Partner Interconnect service, customers can also connect from any of Interxion’s data centres across Europe via Cloud Connect.
Customers using this service benefit from fully redundant, instant access to GCP from multiple metropolitan areas, ensuring a 99.99% availability SLA without the complexity and costs of having to build a networking solution themselves.
This report continues after the following message from HG Insights:
“We are seeing strong demand for private connectivity services to GCP as customers look to reap the benefits of Google Cloud’s full portfolio of cloud services via a secure, performant and cost-efficient connection,” said Vincent in ’t Veld, vice president, platforms at Interxion. “By co-locating at Interxion, businesses can interconnect their private cloud to Google Cloud, as well as to most other leading cloud platforms, making it easy to build hybrid or multi-cloud architectures.”
“Dedicated Interconnect and Partner Interconnect gives Google Cloud customers even more connectivity choices for hybrid environments,” said John Veizades, product manager at Google Cloud. “Together with Interxion, we are making it easier for customers to extend their on-premises infrastructure to the Google Cloud Platform.”
Google Cloud Platform is the latest hyperscale cloud platform available through Interxion’s Cloud Connect, adding to the current availability of Microsoft Azure, AWS, Oracle Cloud and IBM Cloud.
