Ascenty announces presence of Google Cloud Interconnect in Santiago

Ascenty, the largest connectivity and data center service provider in Latin America, has announced that customers in its Santiago data center now have access to Google Cloud services via a redundant cross-connect, supporting Google Cloud Interconnect.

Ascenty customers hosted at the Santiago data center will now be able to order cross connects between their private infrastructure and Google Cloud’s global network, allowing the optimization of hybrid IT architectures. Enterprise customers will benefit from low-latency, high-performance, secure and cost-efficient connectivity to Google Cloud.

With the addition of Santiago, Digital Realty’s global data center platform, PlatformDIGITAL now hosts 15 Google Cloud Interconnect locations: Atlanta, Brussels, Copenhagen, Dusseldorf, Frankfurt, Los Angeles, Madrid, Marseille, New York, Paris, Santiago, Sao Paulo, Stockholm, Vienna and Zurich.

Google Cloud Interconnect facilitates the shortest path to customers’ Google Cloud resources. While in transit, customers’ network traffic remains on Google Cloud’s global network, never touching the public Internet, resulting in improved performance through more predictable and reliable routing.

When creating a new connection, customers can choose a hosted connection provided by a dedicated Ascenty cloud access service or the Google Cloud dedicated connection. PlatformDIGITAL provides the physical meeting place where Google Cloud customers and partners can establish direct connections and optimize hybrid IT solutions and data-intensive AI workloads.

“Public cloud investment in the Chilean market is a trend we have been observing for some time. Fast, secure and reliable connections enhance our customers experience with Google Cloud. We are pleased to enhance our community of interest with this dedicated connection. This democratization is extremely important and strategic for Ascenty,” said João Walter, Director of Products, Solutions and Edge Strategy at Ascenty.
