Pre-Google Challenges: The customer was very interested in accessing multiple Google services such as BigQuery.
- They have a very large data footprint as well as security concerns over leveraging internet based connectivity. This limited the initial scope of assessing the suitability of GCP services.
- A highly secure, high performance network was needed to open up the full capability of the platform to their needs.
- Managed network service
GCP products used: Dedicated Interconnects, Load Balancing, Cloud Router, Cloud storage, Compute Engine
Success post GCP: The network implementation now provides high secure network connectivity to GCP that is also fully integrated into the customers broader network and fully managed.
The high bandwidth network has allowed the customer to now complete multiple GCP PoC’s/MVP’s that were previously considered too complex based on internet based connectivity. Some of these projects include Cloud SQL, BigQuery, Kubernetes, Dataproc and Dataflow.
