Cloudscene has announced the launch of a free app that helps enterprises find the optimum connectivity pathway to Google Cloud from any on-net building or data center worldwide.
Developed and owned by Cloudscene, the leading market intelligence and trading platform for cloud and connectivity services, the Cloud Pathfinder app for Google Cloud is available now via find.cloud/google and accessible anytime, anywhere.
Officially launching today, Cloudscene’s Cloud Pathfinder app has been customized for enterprises to instantly find service providers that can deliver connectivity to Google Cloud’s global nodes.
“Google Cloud has chosen Cloudscene to support our strategy to bring the cloud one step closer to the enterprise. By enabling our customers with an app like Cloud Pathfinder, we’re empowering the enterprise in their cloud adoption journey,” said Kerry Takenaka, Product Manager, Google Cloud.
From a simple address search, the app will locate service providers that can deliver connectivity to Google Cloud from the selected location. Customers can then shortlist and reach out to the connectivity partners direct for a quotation.
“We’re delighted to be collaborating with Google Cloud to deliver a Google Cloud specific Pathfinder app powered by Cloudscene. This is yet another way Cloudscene’s platform is helping to remove the barriers to cloud adoption and improving the way enterprises procure cloud and connectivity services,” said Belle Lajoie, CEO, Cloudscene.
Cloudscene’s independent market intelligence platform is the source of the single largest and most accurate database of data centers, service providers, network fabrics and cloud on-ramps. Integrated with the Cloud Pathfinder app, this provides enterprises with extensive connectivity options for both data centers and on-net buildings.
“Cloudscene’s Cloud Pathfinder app is the first phase of our wider procurement solution that will streamline the way the telecommunications industry communicates and transacts. Cloudscene’s goal is to revolutionize the way enterprises buy cloud and connectivity services, and providing the industry with trusted data is critical to this strategy,” added Lajoie.
In the next phase of the Cloud Pathfinder app, latency metrics, which will be provided by ThousandEyes, will be published within the results to assist enterprises in the shortlisting process.
