We’re thrilled to say bonjour to the Dunant submarine cable system, which has been deployed and examined and is now prepared for service. Crossing the Atlantic Ocean between Virginia Seaside within the U.S. and Saint-Hilaire-de-Riez on the French Atlantic coast, the system expands Google’s international community so as to add devoted capability, variety, and resilience, whereas enabling interconnection to different community infrastructure within the area. It’s named in honor of Swiss businessman and social activist Henry Dunant, the founding father of the Pink Cross and first recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize. The historic touchdown was made attainable in partnership with SubCom, a world accomplice for undersea information transport, which engineered, manufactured and put in the Dunant system on schedule regardless of the continuing international pandemic.
Delivering record-breaking capability of 250 terabits per second (Tbps) throughout the Atlantic
As we shared after we initially introduced the Dunant cable, Dunant is the primary long-haul subsea cable to function a 12 fiber pair space-division multiplexing (SDM) design, and can ship record-breaking capability of 250 terabits per second (Tbps) throughout the ocean—sufficient to transmit the complete digitized Library of Congress 3 times each second. Elevated cable capability is delivered in a cheap method with extra fiber pairs (twelve, somewhat than six or eight in previous generations of subsea cables) and power-optimized repeater designs. Whereas earlier subsea cable applied sciences relied on a devoted set of pump lasers to amplify every fiber pair, the SDM know-how utilized in Dunant permits pump lasers and related optical parts to be shared amongst a number of fiber pairs. This ‘pump sharing’ know-how allows extra fibers inside the cable whereas additionally offering greater system availability.
Reworking companies within the cloud worldwide
The facility and capability of our infrastructure performs an essential position in Google’s mission to make the world’s info extra accessible and helpful, and in Google Cloud’s position in remodeling companies within the cloud worldwide.
This implies organizations can:
Run their apps the place they want them with open, hybrid, and multi-cloud options so their builders can construct and innovate quicker, in any atmosphere, with out being pressured right into a single vendor resolution.
Get smarter and make higher selections with the main information platform with machine studying and superior analytics capabilities that helps them maximize the insights they derive from their information.
Run on the cleanest cloud within the business, on instruments and applied sciences that can foster a carbon-free future for everybody and allow them to scale back their carbon footprint.
Function confidently with superior safety instruments that shield their information, purposes, and infrastructure—in addition to that of their clients—from fraudulent exercise, spam, and abuse.
Rework how their folks join and collaborate, with all of the digital instruments they should do their finest work, whether or not at residence, at work, or within the classroom.
Lower your expenses, enhance effectivity, and optimize spend—from lowering time spent on platform administration with Anthos to saving as much as 32% migrating your purposes to Google versus working them on-prem.
Get custom-made business options that deal with their hardest challenges—retail, CPG, monetary providers, manufacturing, media, leisure and telco, gaming, public sector, and healthcare and life sciences, you identify it.
This work is a part of our ongoing efforts to construct a superior cloud community for our clients, with well-provisioned direct paths between our cloud and our clients. The Google Cloud community consists of fiber optic hyperlinks and subsea cables—which is able to quickly embrace the Grace Hopper subsea cable—between 100+ factors of presence, hundreds of edge node places, 100+ Cloud CDN places, 91 devoted interconnect places and 24 GCP areas, with extra areas introduced in locations like Chile, Spain, Italy France and Poland. All of this implies higher reliability, pace and safety efficiency as in contrast with the nondeterministic efficiency of the general public web, or different cloud networks. And whereas we haven’t hastened the pace of sunshine, we’re nonetheless very a lot laborious at work at bringing you a greater and quicker cloud.
