Global network expansion reaches completion
Managed Hosting, Cloud and Network provider Continent 8 Technologies, has announced the successful completion of their latest multi-million dollar global network expansion.
With services now spread across the Europe, Asia and the Americas the new development links the Asia Pacific region diversely back to Europe and also directly to their US network via new, dedicated points of presence in Los Angeles and Hong Kong.
As a result, by taking their global locations count to total to 27 (and growing), the company is now able to send data literally on a lap around planet Earth on their private network, boasting a ‘lap-time’ of under 300 milliseconds.
In real terms, what this capability gives enterprises is among the most comprehensive and scaled network capability available. The company has linked the world’s major global telecoms hubs with regulated jurisdictions and beyond, and provides a level of redundancy of internet access and reach which remains unrivalled in a number of sectors.
The multi-terabit network spanning 3 continents also now underpins the company’s DDoS mitigation pedigree which many stock exchange listed clients rely on. In fact, there are even service providers who are now counting on the company’s proven DDoS expertise to protect both their infrastructure and that of their customers.
Unsurprisingly, this network too is the foundation for exciting new private connectivity services which allow data replication and private connectivity and secure communications across borders. Michael Tobin, co-founder and CEO at Continent 8 commented:
“We are extremely proud to have made this further investment to take our network truly global, and in particular to be able to complete the project on time, on budget and to the exacting standards our customers have come to expect.
We are building an ecosystem of directly connected unique locations, customers and services. Many providers claim to be ‘global’, yet few can demonstrate such a commitment and allow their customers access to leverage their investment”.
