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 locations.
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
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.

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
To list locations, you can
also use the Google Cloud Console or the
gcloud command-line tool.
