Google provides a secure tunnel between the customer’s private networks and the Google Cloud.
Google has launched a new networking option for large enterprises, giving them a Dedicated Interconnect.
The offering is designed to provide customers with an easy way for enterprises to migrate to the Google Cloud Platform.
Dedicated Interconnect, which is now in beta, will give customers a highly available, high-bandwidth network connection to GCP, basically meaning that there is a secure tunnel between the customer’s private networks and the Google Cloud.
Bandwidth available is said to be up to 80 Gbps, however, traffic won’t be encrypted and will be required to install routing equipment in their colocation facilities.
On the security front, Google says that customers should use their own VPN service or use application-level encryption.
