May 29, 2018
AT&T and Google Cloud are optimizing collaboration and cloud networking
for business customers. Through Google’s newly launched Partner
Interconnect, business customers will be able to use AT&T NetBond for
Cloud to connect in a highly secure manner to Google Cloud Platform. The
new alliance also makes G Suite, Google’s cloud-based productivity suite
for business including Gmail, Docs and Drive, available through AT&T
CollaborateSM, a hosted voice and collaboration solution for businesses
of all sizes.
Using Google Cloud Partner Interconnect through AT&T NetBond® for Cloud
allows businesses to move workloads across multiple cloud environments
without ever touching the public internet. Partner Interconnect offers
organizations private connectivity to GCP and allows data centers
geographically distant from a Google Cloud region or point of presence
to connect at up to 10Gbps. Google has joined more than 20 leading cloud
providers in the NetBond® for Cloud ecosystem, which gives access to
more than 130 different cloud solutions.
Additionally, with G Suite now available alongside AT&T Collaborate,
businesses will get access to a single source for chat, voice, video and
desktop sharing to bring people together and help them work smarter.
Businesses can also enable carrier-grade voice reliability and security
from within the G Suite applications. G Suite can be used across
virtually any device, regardless of work location, providing further
flexibility to an increasingly more mobile employee base.
