CyrusOne has announced that customers now have direct access to Google Cloud Platform in multiple markets, enabling CyrusOne customers to capitalize on Google Cloud Platform’s compute, storage, networking, and big data capabilities.

“As an enterprise-level data center provider, we understand that our customers value efficiency, reliability, and security above all. Our direct connection to Google Cloud Platform will enable CyrusOne customers to not only have Google’s robust cloud storage solution and compute power, but also to access their data at top speeds via our National IX [Internet Exchange],” said Josh Snowhorn, vice president and general manager, Interconnection, CyrusOne.

Google Cloud Platform offers developers and IT organizations durable and highly available object storage and on-demand compute power that empowers their big data needs. Massively scalable networking interconnections between Google and CyrusOne allow enterprises to remove any bottlenecks they might have seen previously when purchasing cloud services from other vendors.

The CyrusOne National IX delivers Internet interconnection across states and between metro-enabled sites within the CyrusOne facility footprint and beyond. CyrusOne data centers can be directly connected in multiple markets across the United States, providing customers with a mix-and-match platform for production or disaster recovery. The CyrusOne data center platform enables high-performance, low-cost data transfer and accessibility, and now ties CyrusOne’s state-of-the-art data centers to the Google Cloud Platform.
