Interxion has launched a new dedicated access service to the Google Cloud Platform (GCP) across is European footprint.

The direct connectivity to GCP will be offered through Cloud Connect, Interxion’s multi-cloud interconnection platform, after Google deployed Cloud Interconnect points of presence (PoPs) in Interxion’s Marseille, Paris, Frankfurt and Stockholm data centres.

Interxion also becomes a partner of Google Cloud’s new Partner Interconnect service, meaning its customers can also connect directly to Google Cloud from any of Interxion’s 45 data centres located across Europe.

"Dedicated Interconnect and Partner Interconnect gives Google Cloud customers even more connectivity choices for hybrid environments,” said John Veizades, product manager at Google Cloud. “Together with Interxion, we are making it easier for customers to extend their on-premises infrastructure to the Google Cloud Platform."

Customers using the Cloud Connect service to access GCP will have access to a fully redundant, instant access service spanning multiple metropolitan areas, with a 99.99% availability SLA without the need for the complexity and costs of having to build a networking solution themselves, Interxion said.

Google Cloud Platform is the latest hyperscale cloud platform available through Interxion’s Cloud Connect, with the likes of Microsoft Azure, AWS, Oracle Cloud and IBM Cloud all already launched on the platform.

“We are seeing strong demand for private connectivity services to GCP as customers look to reap the benefits of Google Cloud's full portfolio of cloud services via a secure, performant and cost-efficient connection,” said Vincent in ’t Veld, vice president, platforms at Interxion.

“By colocating at Interxion, businesses can interconnect their private cloud to Google Cloud, as well as to most other leading cloud platforms, making it easy to build hybrid or multi-cloud architectures.”
