Google Cloud Platform

You can transfer data reliably between your Equinix on-premises network and the Google Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) network by using Google Cloud Partner Interconnect, which includes these features:

  • Low latency, high availability connections between both networks

  • Internal IP address communication to ensure that internal IP addresses are directly accessible from both networks

Google Cloud Interconnect offers the following choices to extend your on-premises network:

  • Dedicated Interconnect – Provides a direct physical connection between your on-premises network and Google's network. Available from Equinix as a cross connect that can be ordered from the Equinix Customer Portal (ECP).

  • Partner Interconnect – Provides connectivity between your on-premises and VPC networks through a supported service provider, available as a Virtual Connection from the Equinix Fabric portal.

To decide which offering suits your needs, see the Cloud Interconnect section in Choosing a Network Connectivity product.

You can connect to Google Cloud Interconnect using a combination of Equinix Fabric portal and Google Cloud Portal or use the Quick Connect option to establish the connection without having to log in to Google Cloud Portal.
