Epsilon, a cloud-centric global connectivity and communications service provider, today announced support for Google Cloud’s Partner Interconnect, a service from Google Cloud that is designed to allow customers to connect to Google Cloud Platform globally.
Partner Interconnect is a product in the Google Cloud Interconnect family. Another product in the family, Dedicated Interconnect, designed to provide higher-speed and lower-cost connectivity than VPN, and has become the “go-to” solution to connect on-premise data centres to Google Cloud.

The platform allows customers to establish dedicated connections to Google Cloud Platform delivered via Epsilon’s MEF-certified ethernet service. Infiny enables flexible and secure direct access to an ecosystem of cloud service providers across the globe with added real-time network performance and analytics.
