Open Coconut Networks is a Google Cloud Dedicated Interconnect Partner. As such our team of network engineer experts can help you to build the missing bridge between your on-prem infrastructure and your Google Cloud infrastructure.
Thanks to our platform you can deploy connect your hybrid infrastructure in less than a minute. However if you feel more comfortable to talk to one of our experts, feel free to reach out. We will be happy to answer all questions you might have before proceeding.
When it comes to interconnect these two worlds, it's important to take into account all the aspects in order to cover all the gaps.
Here are few benefits of using Open Coconut for your Dedicated Interconnect Connection:
There are two types of architectures that exist:
We always advise our customers to go for the Redundant Google Cloud Dedicated Interconnect as this provides the most resilient solution. So if there is a hardware issue at either sides of the connection, the redundant path can take over and carry your traffic as if no outages had happened.
This architecture relies on a single port on Google Cloud side and a single port on Open Coconut side (facing the customer). As you can see if there is an issue with an equipment at Google or Open Coconut or even at your on-prem site, the traffic will be disrupted.
So this scenario is advised for non-critical traffic only.
This architecture relies on deploying a set of 2 ports at Google side, 2 ports at Open Coconut side (facing Google) and 2 ports at the customer's side. The service will be deployed between these pair of ports. Bandwidth is dedicated to a single customer's use, end to end, from 1mbps and up to 10000mbps.
With the Redundant Google Cloud Dedicated Interconnect, if the primary path (in green) fails, the backup path (in red) is ready to take over within a few milliseconds.
This scenario is advised for critical traffic, that must be up and running 24/7.
