Megaport adds Google Cloud Platform interconnect

By

Interconnection provider Megaport is now a Google Cloud Platform authorised technology partner, allowing it to provide interconnection to Google services such as Google Compute Engine and Google Cloud Storage.

Megaport's participation in the Google Cloud Platform partner program means its customers can reach Google's services via a private connection rather than across the public internet.

This includes traffic to and from the customer's private data centre as well as other resources on the Megaport fabric.

Megaport provides fully automated quoting, activation and management of network services from a user to Google Compute Engine, Google Cloud Storage, Google BigQuery, Google App Engine, and a variety of other Google Cloud Platform services.

This can be achieved via the Megaportal or by using API so that applications can handle the orchestration of Google Cloud Platform assets and the Megaport Platform.

"We're very excited to offer Google Cloud Platform, one of the fastest growing and in-demand cloud providers today, to our user community," said Megaport chief marketing officer Brooke Mouland.

"Offering Enterprises the ability to build, consume, and control their network assets just like they do their cloud assets is really important to us.

"Simple is good, and choice is good. Google Cloud Platform offers both, and our user community can have both in a matter of minutes. Using an orchestrated solution between the cloud, the network, and the Enterprise is the best way to fully realise the potential that these new technologies offer."

Megaport already provides direct connections to Amazon Web Services.
