Google Hybrid Cloud Networking Gets Production-Ready

Enterprises looking for fast, reliable connections between their on-premises networks and the Google Cloud Platform can get it with Google's Cloud Dedicated Interconnect service, generally available Tuesday.

"With faster private connections offered by Dedicated Interconnect, you can build applications that span on-premises infrastructure and GCP without compromising privacy or performance," John Veizades, Google (Nasdaq: GOOG) product manager for Dedicated Internet, said in a blog post Tuesday.

The service, launched in pilot last month, is now generally available. It's ready for production-grade workloads, and covered by service level agreements of 99.9% or 99.99% uptime, Google says.

Dedicated Interconnect supports Cloud Router Global Routing, which allows any on-premises network to access any Google Cloud Platform subnet through the Google network. Google says it believes this feature is unique among cloud providers.

Google is adding four new spots to its worldwide locations: Mumbai, Munich, Montreal and Atlanta. And Google is working with Equinix Inc. (Nasdaq: EQIX) to offer Dedicated Interconnect elsewhere around the world, "ensuring that no matter where you are, there is a Dedicated Interconnect connection close to you," Google says.

Dedicated Interconnect follows Google Network Service Tiers in August. Network Service Tiers connects an enterprise's cloud applications to customers, while Dedicated Interconnect connects the enterprise to the cloud.

And adding those "four new spots to its worldwide locations: Mumbai, Munich, Montreal and Atlanta," seems to be pretty well placed right in the middle of huge populations making it probable to pick up lots of new businesses worldwide.

Idea
This is a good idea. 

I can see how for some organizations that have employees all over the globe the cloud experience is less than ideal. An interconnect service allows Google services to work as they should from wherever.
