Ascenty offers three connection points in distinct locations with Google Cloud in São Paulo
Ascenty is delivering a data exchange latency of up to 2 milliseconds, 15% below the Brazilian market average
Ascenty, a leader in the Colocation market in Latin America, with 27 data centers distributed across Brazil, Chile and Mexico, now offers a secure, private and direct access point to the Google Cloud global network from its São Paulo data center campus that became a Google Cloud Interconnect connection location.
This ranks Ascenty as the one of the only companies currently offering Google Cloud access across all Google Cloud’s interconnect locations in São Paulo state.
The three connections points are made possible by direct integration with Google Cloud’s Partner Interconnect, a service that allows customers to connect to Google Cloud’s global platform.
Another unique feature is that clients are not required to host their servers in Ascenty’s data centers to access Google Cloud. The connection points are available even to companies with data allocated in other structures, including private (on premises), hybrid and public cloud. The connectivity latency is similar across all solutions available, with Ascenty delivering a data exchange latency of up to 2 milliseconds, 15% below the Brazilian market average. For clients that do not have a backbone allocated to any of Ascenty’s data centers, the farther they are from these access points in São Paulo, the higher the latency.
Another benefit to Google Cloud customers relates to peering https://cloud.google.com/network-connectivity/docs/how-to/choose-product#g-suite, which is the integration of traffic exchange between end users and content creators online. The private connection with Google Cloud, which handles a massive amount of data in video, streaming and social media, among other contents, ultimately generates cost savings and ensures superior service quality for internet providers.
“We deliver exactly what our clients need based on the specific stage of the digital transformation each of them is going through. In other words, we act as facilitators of the cloud migration process, working alongside our clients to outline a gradual strategic plan for digital transformation, mitigating eventual setbacks caused by an unplanned digital acceleration process,” said Vinícius Minetto, Director of Sales at Ascenty.
Breaking down the business benefits
By connecting directly to the Google Cloud network, Ascenty clients benefit from the ability to create and host digital business applications in the highly scalable and reliable infrastructure of Google Cloud.
Direct access to Google Cloud also offers major cost benefits for outgoing traffic between Google Cloud’s private virtual cloud and clients’ local IT resources, ultimately boosting the potential of hybrid solutions.
In addition, easy API (Application Programming Interface) between the clients infrastructure and Google Cloud streamlines the management of essential services.
The integration with NAP Brasil (Network Access Point), with 5,000 km of dedicated fiber-optic cabling network interconnecting all of Ascenty’s 27 data centers, further broadens business development possibilities to approximately 350 clients across Latin America.
In addition, Ascenty’s partners also rely on the expertise of its shareholder companies: Digital Realty, the world’s largest data center company, with 290 units located in America, Europe, Asia and Oceania; and Brookfield Infrastructure Partners, Canadian asset manager with solid experience in the Brazilian market.
