NEXTDC extends Google Cloud to Vic

NEXTDC’s M2 Melbourne data centre will now provide low-latency, secure access directly to Google Cloud from anywhere in Australia.

Helping to further enable the journey to Hybrid Cloud, government and enterprise organisations can now connect locally and natively to Google Cloud via two new Google Cloud Interconnect access points, directly from M2 Melbourne, the company said in a statement.

Local access to Google Cloud removes the need for organisations to haul their Google Cloud workloads back to Sydney via intercapital or internet-based connections. Not only will it alleviate connectivity costs, it will enable organisations to achieve maximum performance by close to eliminating latency and jitter across the network.

NEXTDC CEO Craig Scroggie said, “The addition of these two new Google Cloud Interconnect services offers enterprise and government organisations greater depth and diversity when optimising their hybrid and multi-cloud strategies. In addition to providing an increased level of security and reliability, these new Google Interconnect locations will vastly expand Australia’s access to one of the world’s fastest growing cloud platforms.”

Customers have the option to choose between Google Cloud’s Dedicated Interconnect accessed via a Cross Connect or Google Cloud’s Partner Interconnect solution, which is accessed via NEXTDC’s AXON interconnection platform.
