Integration of Private Service Connect and Cloud Interconnect

Released 09/21/2023

Introduction

Liferay Cloud has implemented a new feature facilitating the integration of Google Cloud's Private Service Connect (PSC) within its platform. PSC, a tunneling solution, enables the establishment of dedicated connections involving specific Kubernetes services or namespaces.

Google Cloud Interconnect Integration

Cloud Interconnect provides a dedicated connection directly from an organization's on-premises network or other cloud environments to Google Cloud Platform. This connection bypasses the public internet, yielding benefits like enhanced security, reduced latency, and predictable network performance. When combined with PSC, Cloud Interconnect serves as a bridge, facilitating more secure, efficient, and streamlined interactions between on-premises systems and Liferay Cloud.

How It Works

  1. Establishment of PSC Connection: Liferay Cloud platform now supports PSC connections, ensuring that only specified Kubernetes services or namespaces can initiate and access this connection.

  2. Tunneling Solutions: With PSC in place, a dedicated channel is available for specific GCP services or different GCP VPCs to connect in or out of a VPC within the Liferay Cloud platform.

  3. Programmatic Provisioning: Liferay Cloud supports API-driven provisioning of PSC, providing automation and flexibility for the users.

  4. Cloud Interconnect as a Bridge: For organizations looking to securely bridge their on-premises data and systems with GKE or Google Cloud Storage, the combined utility of PSC and Cloud Interconnect offers a robust solution. Data, whether sensitive or voluminous, can be securely and rapidly transferred between points.

Conclusion

Through the integration of Private Service Connect and Cloud Interconnect in the Liferay Cloud platform, users can now leverage dedicated and secure channels for communication and data transfer between their on-premises systems and Liferay Cloud, capitalizing on enhanced security, reduced latency, and consistent performance.
