Google invites private networks into its cloud
Google is offering enterprises a new way to build hybrid infrastructure, with a service that extends corporate networks into its cloud platform.
Called Dedicated Interconnect, it allows companies to treat servers in Google’s cloud as if they were part of their own private address space. This can be useful for businesses operating in financial services, video editing, or other industries that need to be able to scale up processing capabilities, but want to keep their data on a private network, according to product manager John Veizades.
By buying multiple 10 Gbit/s connections, customers can boost the throughput of the interconnect between the cloud and their on-premises networks, or improve its availability, or both.
