Listing locations

When you order a Dedicated Interconnect connection, you must specify a colocation facility where your network meets Google's network. In most cases, select a facility that's geographically close to your on-premises network.

To view a list of these facilities in the documentation, see Choosing colocation facility locations.

To use the Google Cloud Console or gcloud command-line tool to view a list of facilities, see the following steps.

Console

You can view a list of the colocation facilities when you order an Interconnect connection. You can filter the locations by city or facility name.

For more information, see Ordering a Dedicated Interconnect connection.

gcloud

List all the colocation facilities:
