For access to Google applications, such as G Suite, you can obtain enterprise-grade network services that connect your infrastructure to Google by using a service provider.
When connecting to Google through a service provider, you can get connections with higher availability and lower latency, using one or more links. Work with your service provider to get the connection you need.
To access G Suite applications from an on-premises network, an organization might need a DMZ (perimeter network) to reach Google's network. The DMZ enables organizations to expose an isolated subnetwork to the public Internet instead of their entire network. Instead of setting up and maintaining a DMZ, the organization can work with a service provider so that their traffic travels on a dedicated link from their systems to Google. With the dedicated link, the organization gets a higher availability and lower latency connection to Google's network.
|You can take advantage of the direct connection between the networks of your service provider and Google. That connection helps provide higher availability and lower latency for your business traffic as it travels from your systems to Google.||Google Cloud Platform traffic being sent to an in-region connection is charged similar to the direct peering pricing structure.*|
*See Pricing for more information.
Google Cloud Platform egress traffic through Carrier Peering connections is billed at the following rates:
- NA: $0.04/GB
- EU: $0.05/GB
- APAC: $0.06/GB
To receive this pricing, you must notify the Google sales team after signing up with one of the providers. All other traffic, including ingress traffic through the connection, is billed at standard Google Cloud Platform rates.
Service Provider fees:
Consult your service provider to find out what they will charge to provide connections to you.
Review the list of service providers and choose the option that best suit your needs.
Where are the connections physically located?
Service providers offer service in a range of locations around the world. Please contact them for local availability of their service. Please note that Google and its networking partners are working to increase the number of locations throughout the world where Google's networks connect with carrier networks to deliver the best possible experience.
Can I purchase connections from multiple service providers?
Yes, you can purchase from multiple service providers. Doing so may be helpful in situations where you want to connect disparate parts of your WAN that are managed and provisioned separately by different providers. In such a case, you would have a commercial relationship with both providers for connectivity.
Does Google offer a Service Level Agreement (SLA)?
Customers should consult with their network service provider to determine whether that provider may offer an SLA. Google does not offer an SLA with this program
Is the Carrier Peering connection secure?
Google has no control over the connection traffic while it traverses the provider's network; we encourage customers who have security needs to consider using strong encryption.
Can I connect to the Internet via this connection?
No, you cannot connect to non Google services through the Carrier Peering connection.
