CyrusOne (NASDAQ: CONE), a global data center real estate investment trust (REIT), has added new options for direct connectivity to Google Cloud at some of its U.S. data centers. The company has deployed five new direct on-ramps in Aurora, Austin, Houston, San Antonio, as well as their newly operational Council Bluffs facility.
As part of Google Cloud Interconnect, the new direct connect locations would provide CyrusOne customers with “simple, cost-effective” solutions for creating hybrid cloud environments tailored to their specific business needs. In addition to offering these direct on-ramps, CyrusOne also provides virtual access to Google Cloud through the CyrusOne National IX. It delivers interconnection across states and between metro-enabled sites within the CyrusOne portfolio.
The new offerings at CyrusOne’s data center facilities would create a unique opportunity for enterprise customers to:
- Leverage Google Cloud’s portfolio of products and compute capacity
- Test new workloads in the cloud while maintaining an on-prem workload at CyrusOne
- Access reliable, high-performance cloud solutions with extremely low latency
- Scale quickly and efficiently at the necessary bandwidth for any application
“At CyrusOne, we are working to help our enterprise customers succeed in their digital transformations and meet their cloud requirements,” said Brent Behrman, executive vice president of sales at CyrusOne. “Incorporating a direct connection to Google Cloud gives our customers access to Google Cloud’s full portfolio of services for scalable, flexible, and cost-effective cloud solutions.”
