London, 1 May 2018 — Colt Technology Services today announced support for Google Cloud Partner Interconnect, a service from Google Cloud that allows customers to connect to the Google Cloud Platform from anywhere.
Google Cloud 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, and has become the go-to solution to connect on-premise data centres with the cloud.
With Partner Interconnect, customers can now choose Colt to provide connectivity from their facility to the nearest Google edge point of presence. In addition, they will also be able to select from a variety of subrate interface speeds varying from 50Mbps to 10Gbps.
“Partner Interconnect gives Google Cloud customers even more connectivity choices for hybrid environments,” said John Veizades, product manager, Google Cloud. “Together with Colt, we are making it easier for customers to extend their on-prem infrastructure to the Google Cloud Platform.”
“Colt’s Dedicated Cloud Access service provides customers with secure and reliable private network connectivity to Google Cloud services,” said Peter Coppens, Vice President Product Portfolio, Colt Technology Services. “Colt’s Dedicated Cloud Access service gives businesses a superior cloud networking experience when compared to the public internet. This enables an agile and on-demand cloud environment that is critical for customers’ digital transformation journeys.”
