Get an Egress Discount for Research and Education

At universities, research and collaboration are fundamental, and it's important for Cloud tools to support this work seamlessly. When it comes to data egress institutions often face challenges such as the fact that costs can be hard to predict, especially in areas like high performance computing, machine learning, and IoT.

We want to remove friction with egress. As a special offer to Internet2 Higher Education members, Google now waives data egress fees, up to a maximum discount of 15% of the total monthly Google Cloud Platform ("GCP") fees. This applies to all global egress SKUs for Google App Engine, Cloud Bigtable, Google Cloud SQL, Google Cloud Storage, and Google Compute Engine.

Eligibility

To receive the egress discount for Google Cloud Platform, institutions must meet the following eligibility requirements.

Institution Internet2 Higher Education member
Role Faculty and administrators using Google Cloud Platform ("GCP")
Network Must route at least 80% of egress from GCP via direct peering with Google, Google "Cloud Interconnect" links, or via Internet2 or Internet2 connector networks.
Workload Types Allowed
  1. Research or academic workloads
  2. Hosting departmental websites
NOT Allowed
  1. Massive online open courseware (MOOC)
  2. Live-streaming/ Media streaming
  3. Hosting websites for commercial purposes outside of research & teaching.
Region USA

How to get the egress discount

  1. Eligibility. Check that your school is included on the list of Internet2 Higher Education members.
  2. Form. The school's billing contact requests the data egress discount by filling out the discount form, providing Google with the appropriate, approved school billingIDs. Each billing contact must complete one form for his/her set of billingIDs.
  3. Agreement. After Google has reviewed the form(s), we will reply to institutions.
    • For institutions who already have an agreement with Google, Google will send the billing contact an addendum to their existing Google Cloud Platform agreement.
    • For institutions new to Google products, Google will send the billing contact a new Google Cloud Platform agreement, which shall include the egress discount as an addendum.
  4. Signature. The institution signs the updated addendum or agreement and returns it to Google.
  5. Discount. Google will apply the discount to all eligible egress SKUs starting at the next billing cycle for the approved billingID(s).

Disproportionate usage

If egress usage exceeds 15% of the total monthly GCP fee, Google will follow up with the institution. Should the customer be found to be in breach of the "Network" or "Workload Types" terms, Google reserves the right to revoke the discount.

Qualifying SKUs for egress discount

The following is a list of SKUs that are eligible for application of the egress discount. These SKUs are subject to change. If a SKU is removed Google will alert the billing contact. If a new SKU is added, it will be discounted automatically on the next billing cycle.
