Recently, Google Cloud has declared that the Private Sector Connect is generally available in all Google Cloud regions. It is a service that stores customers’ traffic privately and securely over Google’s global network while abstracting the underlying network infrastructure.
Private Service Connect helps users create private and secure connections from cloud networks to services like Cloud Storage and third-party assistance. It produces service endpoints in user’s VPCs which provide personal connectivity and policy enforcement and provide users with the connectivity service across different networks and organizations.
While making this announcement, Google said that at Google Cloud, they believe in making it secure and straightforward to consume services whether they’re from Google, a third party or customer-owned. Private Service Connect has adopted a service-centric approach to their network that abstracts the underlying networking infrastructure.
The company stated that the customers want to consume services faster while ensuring that the connectivity is private and secure. Earlier, it was challenging to achieve this. Networking teams had to work out IP address blocks, agree on policies and coordinate as applications evolved to newer versions. With Private Service Connect, Users can delegate the consumption and delivery of services to different teams without coordinating between teams.
Richard Rose, a lab architect at Google Cloud, said that users could create multiple Private Service Connect endpoints in the same VPC network by connecting to service endpoints that are locally managed. There is no limitation on bandwidth to a particular endpoint. As Private Service Connect endpoints use global internal IP addresses, they can be referenced by any resource in a VPC network.
The company’s target is to provide its users with the right networking solutions for connecting their business to Google Cloud. With Private Service Connect, users will access and link to services faster, more easily protect their network traffic, and speed up their migration to the cloud.
