Is it just us, or does it seem like everybody is transitioning to cloud integrations, particularly when it comes to running applications? For developers, the cloud offers unparalleled advantages in terms of scalability. Modern applications tend to require a hefty amount of processing power and are data dense. If you are running these applications with an eye to leveraging Google, you can reap a significant advantage by colocating in 1623 Farnam. Here’s why.

Our edge data center location, at the nexus of the country’s North/South and East/West routes, is quite strategic when you consider our proximity to  Google’s largest North American Cloud node. By partnering with us, you can reduce your costs to connect to the Google Cloud, as you eliminate the need to pay for hops across the country. 

What’s so special about Google Cloud? Well, the service has several benefits of its own, a primary one being a direct connection to Google’s backbone network. When you are operating in Google Cloud, you are communicating directly with other data centers in Google’s own network. This is inherently more secure than relying on the public internet. As well, going this route drastically lowers latency, which is key when developers wish to deliver application functionality via Application Programming Interfaces (APIs).  With this increased speed, it thus becomes possible to process more data in less time, which can result in significant savings on infrastructure usage considering Google’s prices are billed to the second (after a minimum charge for a minute). Whether one is leveraging Google Cloud for application modernization or to develop new ones that rely on AI or Machine Learning, only paying for what you need results in savings that can be diverted to other mission-critical business operations. As Google says, “Do more for less”.

As you can see, there are numerous advantages of having proximal, low latency gateway access to Google Cloud.  And this is where 1623 Farnam stands apart from the competition. Not only can you interconnect with business partners from across the US at our location, but you can also quickly and easily access Google’s backbone. Google Cloud caters to a variety of verticals from Government to Healthcare, Retail and AI. So, if you’re looking for a way to build your cloud-based business on one of the premier cloud platforms without breaking the bank, 1623 Farnam is the answer for you.
