Choosing colocation facility locations

Dedicated interconnections are available from 81 locations.

If your Google Cloud workload requires a location with less than 5 milliseconds of round-trip latency between VM instances in a specified region and its associated interconnect locations, see Choosing a colocation facility location with low latency.

Requirements and recommendations

For Dedicated Interconnect your network must physically meet Google's network in a supported colocation facility, also known as an interconnect location, where a vendor, the colocation facility provider, provisions a circuit between your network and a Google Edge Point of Presence. For more information, see the Cloud Interconnect Overview.

The Regions served column in the table below indicates the regions in which you can create VLAN attachments, which affects latency and egress costs. For example, if you have VM instances in region us-east4, you might create a dedicated connection in Ashburn and then create an interconnect attachment (VLAN) in us-east4. That way your traffic doesn't have to travel far to move between your VM instances and the dedicated connection, resulting in lower latency than, for example, creating a dedicated connection and interconnect attachment in Europe.

Also, it's more cost effective to create interconnect attachments in the same regions as your VM instances because you don't have to pay inter-region egress costs when VM instances send traffic to your on-premises network.

Other Google Cloud location options

  • Network edge locations allow you to peer with Google Cloud and connect to Google Cloud services. Peering does not require Cloud Interconnect.
  • Cloud CDN locations use Google's globally distributed edge points of presence to cache HTTP(S) load balanced content close to your users. Caching content at the edges of Google's network provides faster delivery of content to your users while reducing serving costs.

Locations table

The following table lists the locations where you can create dedicated connections. The locations are organized by the GCP regions served, metropolitan area, and then by metropolitan availability zone. The name of each location indicates its metropolitan availability zone, such as the zone1 in iad-zone1-1.

You can also use the console or gcloud command-line tool to list locations.
