The provision of two Google Cloud Interconnect access points from NextDC's M2 data centre is said to provide local, native connections to Google Cloud.
Benefits of this approach include highly reliable, high performance and very low latency connections to Google Cloud, while avoiding the need for intercapital or internet-based connections to Google Cloud in Sydney.
Customers may choose between Google Cloud's Dedicated Interconnect accessed via a cross connect, or Google Cloud's Partner Interconnect accessed via NextDC's Axon interconnection platform.
Axon provides instant access to all major cloud providers, carrier networks and ICT services providers nationwide, according to NextDC.
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," said NextDC CEO Craig Scroggie.
"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."
He added "Cloud is the digital foundation for our customers' transformation strategies, and as the most valuable resource in business, data forms the building blocks of new world technology and modern digital businesses. As such, the reliability, proximity and accessibility of data and digital infrastructure is essential.
"The important role NextDC plays for our customers is ensuring they are securely and directly interconnected to the IT services and critical digital infrastructure that drive their growth and innovation strategies."
