CoreSite Realty Corporation, a provider of colocation data center services and interconnection solutions across the U.S., has announced the availability of direct access to Google Cloud Platform via their CoreSite Any2Exchange for Internet peering. This would provide enterprises the opportunity to attain the “secured, reliable, high-performance” connections needed to operate hybrid- and multi-cloud solutions.
Google Cloud Platform allows enterprises to build, test and deploy applications on Google’s cloud infrastructure. This collaboration would provide CoreSite customers with enterprise-grade connectivity to services such as Google Compute Engine, Google Cloud Storage, and Google BigQuery, with “higher availability, lower latency and increased security than Internet connections.”
CoreSite customers will be able to connect directly to Google Cloud Platform via the CoreSite Any2Exchange in Chicago, Denver, and Los Angeles. Additionally, customers may access Google Cloud Platform from all of CoreSite’s markets via its network-rich ecosystem of providers or through its inter-site connectivity in select markets. CoreSite offers numerous inter-site connectivity options including lit transport solutions and dedicated dark fiber.
CoreSite’s Any2Exchange is one of the largest Internet exchanges in the United States. With CoreSite’s Any2Exchange, customers would be able to make secured, SLA-backed, low-latency connections over one port and at a variety of speeds (including 1Gbps, 10Gbps and 100Gbps) with direct peering to Google Cloud Platform.
Customers connecting directly to Google Cloud Platform would benefit from reduced congestion and routing issues, reduction in transit costs, lower latency and reduced complexity, all while having access to connect and peer with nearly 400 participating members.
“CoreSite is pleased to announce the availability of direct peering to Google Cloud Platform via our Any2Exchange, providing our customers with a dedicated, flexible and high-performance solution to optimize their evolving cloud and connectivity requirements,” said Brian Warren, senior vice president of engineering and product, CoreSite.
