Peering Connection

A stable and affordable cloud-based network connection service that meets your connectivity needs for Tencent Cloud resources

Overview

Peering Connection (PC) is a high-bandwidth and high-quality connectivity service that makes possible communication among Tencent Cloud resources. PC facilitates interconnection among multiple regions, accounts or heterogeneous networks, ideal for complex network scenarios such as 2-region-3-DC cloud-based disaster recovery or unified game servers. Additionally, it supports interconnection among VPCs, basic networks and BM networks, readily satisfying the different deployment needs of your businesses.

Benefits

Multi-network Interconnection

PC can help you achieve heterogeneous interconnection among resources on different Tencent Cloud networks such as VPCs, BM networks and basic networks and supports on-demand deployment for different businesses to enable peering data communications.

Fine-tuned Traffic Management

PC provides "monitoring" and "control" capabilities at the IP-gateway granularity to help you quickly locate network problems through network traffic visualization and IP-level traffic management and ensure key business continuity through precisely configured QoS policies.

Cloud Resource Sharing

PC supports network resource sharing between different VPCs on Tencent Cloud and enables you to easily build a 2-region-3-DC cloud-based disaster recovery scheme leveraging the data synchronization among different IDCs made possible by Tencent Cloud IDC.

Security

PC features non-transferable interconnectivity to ensure data security, meaning the interconnection between two VPCs enabled by PC will be non-transferable, so your data will not be sent to other VPCs where a peering connection has not been established.

Cross-account Interconnection

PC supports network interconnection among different accounts. Resources under multiple accounts are able to access one another through the utilization of routing strategies configured at both ends. Further, PC supports traffic interconnection between your VPC and VPC of another company or provider.

Stability and High Availability

The underlying high-availability physical architecture of PC does not rely on any single piece of hardware, eliminating the potential for single-point failures or bandwidth bottlenecks and providing stable and highly available network interconnection.

Features

Multi-network Interconnection

PC can help you achieve interconnection among resources on different Tencent Cloud networks such as:
• Between two VPCs
• Between a VPC and a BM network
• Between a VPC and a basic network
It enables smooth communication among Tencent Cloud resources and supports on-demand deployment for different businesses, allowing you to manage various types of cloud networks with ease.

Scenarios

In-cloud Business Acceleration

Gaming Acceleration

Online games typically have players all over the world and servers deployed in multiple regions. PC makes it easy for games to cope with network latency-sensitive scenarios such as cross-server PvP battles to improve the player experience.
● PC can build stable networks with low latency, meeting the cross-server gaming needs of global players.
● Tencent Cloud boasts 45 availability zones across 25 geographical regions around the world, allowing for proximity-based business deployment that satisfies the access needs of players in different regions.

2-region-3-DC Cloud-based Disaster Recovery

2-region-3-DC Cloud-based Disaster Recovery

PC enables you to build a VPC-based 2-region-3-DC disaster recovery scheme that meets the security and high availability needs of in-cloud financial services.
● Businesses can be deployed across regions, allowing for an intra-city active-active disaster recovery.
● PC also supports cross-region disaster recovery.
● Security isolation of business regions is made possible by multi-level security protection based on ACL, security group and CAM.

Pricing

Intra-region PC is free of charge, while cross-region PC offers tiered pricing in a pay-as-you-go manner. All fees are charged to the service initiator, with nothing charged to the recipient.
