DE-CIX has announced support for Google Cloud Partner Interconnect, a service from Google Cloud that allows customers to connect to Google Cloud Platform from anywhere in the world.

The German internet exchange’s customers can now choose DE-CIX to provide connectivity from their facility to the nearest Google edge point of presence. In addition, they will also be able to select from a variety of subrate interface speeds varying from 50Mbps up to what Google allows.

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

“We are happy to add Google Cloud to the DE-CIX DirectCLOUD Exchanges at our locations in Frankfurt, Munich, New York, Dallas and Marseille. Through our DirectCLOUD customers can also benefit from Google Cloud’s global network at further DE-CIX internet exchanges e.g. in Hamburg and Istanbul”, says Ivo Ivanov, CEO of DE-CIX International.
