IX Reach is to expand its cloud access services to allow cloud customers to reach Google's network-edge over an enterprise-grade connection. As a Google Cloud Interconnect (GCI) service provider, IX Reach can now connect its global, high-speed network infrastructure directly to Google and provide enterprise grade connectivity to Google Cloud Platform and next gen cloud computing.
Enterprises are now able to connect their on-premises network, data centre, or any other network resource to Google via IX Reach. Connecting over IX Reach's GCI links can improve the consistency and reliability of a business’ cloud connections, offering connectivity options that provide guaranteed bandwidth between the customer and Google’s edge location.
The connections to Google are built with redundant links, which further increases the reliability of the solution.
Steve Wilcox, Founder and Technical Director, IX Reach, commented, “Being able to expand our cloud access solutions to include Google is an exciting addition to our network offering and IX Reach’s growth. Google Cloud Platform is a fantastic tool for content and application developers and a valuable tool for many businesses around the world. We’re extremely pleased to be a part of the movement into cloud computing and being able to connect our customers with dedicated, private bandwidth from locations convenient for them.”
