At universities, research and collaboration are fundamental, and it's important for Google Cloud tools to support this work seamlessly. When it comes to internet 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, and members of the GÉANT NRENs (National research and education network) through OCRE, Google waives internet egress fees calculated at list prices, up to a maximum of 15% of the total monthly Google Cloud fees. This applies to Internet egress SKUs for App Engine, API Gateway, Artifact Registry, Cloud Bigtable, Cloud Functions, Cloud Healthcare API, Cloud Run, Cloud Spanner, Cloud SQL, Cloud Storage, Cloud Tasks, Compute Engine, Pub/Sub, and Remote Build Execution.
To receive the egress discount for Google Cloud, institutions must meet the following eligibility requirements.
|Institution||Internet2 Higher Education member or member of the GÉANT NRENs|
|Role||Faculty, administrators, and academic researchers using Google Cloud|
|Network||Must route at least 80% of egress from Google Cloud through direct peering with Google, Cloud Interconnect links, or through Internet2 or Internet2 connector networks.|
|Region||USA and EMEA|
