The Google Cloud Marketplace now features PacketFabric as a Technology Partner, enabling businesses to connect multi-cloud environments up to multiple 100Gs for data migration in minutes and automate direct connectivity between private cloud colocation and cloud providers across PacketFabric’s 65TB+ private network. PacketFabric is a leading provider of on-demand connectivity for the enterprise cloud core.
“Organizations require both agility and flexibility in how they connect to their most mission-critical applications in the cloud,” said Michael Glickman, Chief of Business Development of PacketFabric. “We are thrilled to be working with Google Cloud to provide these solutions with a superior user experience.”
For the end-to-end process of listing PacketFabric’s Cloud Router product on Google Cloud Marketplace through its Marketplace Integration Services business, SADA, a Google Cloud partner and five-time winner of the Google Cloud Sales Partner of the Year award, was engaged. Additionally, PacketFabric is a part of SADA’s SaaS Alliance Program, which offers tools and go-to-market planning to B2B SaaS ISV businesses built on Google Cloud.
With the addition of PacketFabric to the Google Cloud Marketplace, businesses will have access to a self-service Network-as-a-Service (NaaS) platform built on a private, carrier-grade global optical network. This platform would enable companies to build, manage, and deploy full multi-cloud, hybrid cloud, and custom network connectivity solutions just like any other cloud resource.
On-Demand Multi-Cloud Routing
With PacketFabric Cloud Router, businesses can quickly connect one cloud to another for data migration, transforming their digital operations.
Key features would include the following:
- Private and secure connectivity between cloud providers – Customers may totally avoid the public Internet thanks to the Layer 2 and Layer 3 connection offered by the PacketFabric Cloud Router through PacketFabric’s Network-as-a-Service platform.
- Optimized, low latency service – In addition to avoiding the public Internet, the PacketFabric network infrastructure is used by the Cloud Router to carry data along the optimal route. This traffic will never have to travel a longer route through a fixed central location thanks to automatically spreading routing instances, resulting in highly efficient cloud-to-cloud data transfers.
- Turn up network – Fast! Cloud-native with no hardware requirements – Users do not require on-premises equipment in a colocation facility since the Cloud Routers do not need a physical interface or cross-connect into the PacketFabric platform.
- Additional transparency and control – Enterprise users have complete visibility into traffic data and are able to manage traffic between several cloud providers as well as across various regions on the same cloud provider.
- A dynamic hybrid and multi-cloud architecture – Direct communication between private clouds in colocation and cloud providers may be automated using the PacketFabric API or PacketFabric Terraform Provider.
- Migration Cost Savings – When transporting data to Google Cloud, using the PacketFabric network would lower egress fees.
- Short, flexible contract terms to match cloud consumption patterns – On a carrier-grade, worldwide fiber optic network, PacketFabric services are provided with hourly, monthly, and up to 36 monthly pricing periods.
“PacketFabric is proud to be a NaaS leader and be available to customers on Google Cloud Marketplace,” said Dave Ward, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) at PacketFabric. “As many enterprises move to Google Cloud they now have instant access to the industry’s lowest friction and most scalable multi-cloud routing solution.”
