Low-latency colocation facilities

Stay organized with collections Save and categorize content based on your preferences.

Some workloads running in Google Cloud require low latency between their virtual machine (VM) instances in a specified region and the Dedicated Interconnect colocation facility that you choose. If this is true for your workloads, you can select a low-latency (< 5 milliseconds) colocation facility location from the Locations table in this document.

The pricing for low-latency locations is the same as for all other locations.

If your workloads don't require low-latency connectivity, you can use any of our colocation facilities.

Requirements and recommendations

For Dedicated Interconnect, your network must physically meet Google's network in a supported colocation facility, also known as an Interconnect connection location. This facility is where a vendor, the colocation facility provider, provisions a circuit between your network and a Google Edge point of presence (PoP).

For more information, see the Dedicated Interconnect overview.

In the Locations table, the Region served column indicates the regions in which you can create VLAN attachments, which affect latency and egress costs. For example, if you have VMs in region us-east4 (Virginia), you might create a Dedicated Interconnect connection in Ashburn and then create a VLAN attachment in us-east4. Your traffic then doesn't have to travel far to move between your VMs and the Dedicated Interconnect connection, which results in lower latency than, for example, creating a Dedicated Interconnect connection and a VLAN attachment in Europe.

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

Other Google Cloud location options

For other location options, such as network edge locations or Cloud CDN locations, see Choosing a product.

Locations table

The following table lists low-latency locations where you can create Dedicated Interconnect connections. The locations are organized by the Google Cloud regions served, metropolitan area, and then by edge availability domain (metro availability zone). The name of each location indicates its edge availability domain, such as the zone1 in iad-zone1-1.

To list locations, you can also use the Google Cloud console or the Google Cloud CLI.
