Highwinds participates in the Google Cloud Platform CDN Interconnect program. The company has established private interconnects between 28 of its own points-of-presence and Google’s Edge locations. These links provide low(er) latency routes between the infrastructures of both parties, and increased reliability when compared to content travelling over the public Internet. The peering agreements between Google and Highwinds are especially interesting for Highwinds customers who use the Google Cloud Platform as their origin. Additionally, the costs of egress traffic over the interconnects are reduced for Google customers. Other CDN providers that partake in Google’s Interconnect program are Akamai, Fastly, CloudFlare, Level3 and EdgeCast.
