Interconnection services provider Megaport is now providing support for Google Cloud’s Partner Interconnect, a service from Google Cloud designed to allow customers to privately connect to the platform from anywhere.

The ASX-listed Megaport (ASX:MP1) says the deeper integration between the Megaport SDN and Google Cloud, via the Megaport open application programming Interface, enables ease-of-use and smooth provisioning of network capacity to Google Virtual Private Clouds.

The API reduces manual time-consuming processes associated with activating, connecting, and managing services, and partner Interconnect is now available across the Megaport SDN which connects over 200+ data centres globally with multiple interconnect points already established.

Google Cloud’s Partner Interconnect is a new product in the Google Cloud Interconnect family. Last September, Google announced Dedicated Interconnect, which provides higher-speed and lower-cost connectivity than VPN.

“Partner Interconnect gives Google Cloud customers even more connectivity choices for hybrid environments,” said, John Veizades, product manager, Google Cloud. “Together with Megaport, we are making it easier for customers to extend their on-prem infrastructure to the Google Cloud Platform.”

Vincent English, chief executive of Megaport, says scalable connectivity to Google Cloud Platform ensures that cloud-enabled applications perform to meet mission-critical business requirements.

“Google Cloud brings tremendous value to the Megaport Ecosystem and empowers our customers to address a wide variety of business needs. 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.”
