G-Core Labs, the international provider of cloud and edge solutions, is expanding its presence in Europe by opening its 24-th hosting point in London. The new location in the capital of the United Kingdom is demonstrating one of the best connections on the local market with an average response time of 19 ms (according to Citrix independent analytical system). The infrastructure in London is also a part of the company's global content delivery network.
"The UK is one of the most important centers of the global network. The development of point of presence here, on the one hand, expands the choice for companies and teams who want to have their own dedicated server in Western Europe with high-quality equipment and round-the-clock support. The point of presence guarantees the server access speed of 200 Mbit/s, has no traffic restrictions and is located in a certified Tier III data center", - said Andre Reitenbach, G-Core Labs managing director.
On the other hand, as mr. Reitenbach noted, the United Kingdom is one of the world's leaders in terms of Internet penetration among the population (today it is approaching 95%), a third of residents use streaming as the main way to view video content and even more Britons regularly buy in online stores (the country is one of the three world leaders in terms of internet trade). "Our CDN servers, also located in London, allow us to provide almost instant delivery of the heaviest content to the local audience and customers, including video broadcasts, premium games or demo videos of online stores", - he said.
The functionality of the automatic installation of the most popular operating systems (OS) (Windows and Unix), installed when ordering the server, is provided company’s dedicated and virtual servers. It significantly saves time for system deployment. You can also connect your own ISO image and install the necessary OS yourself. All G-Core Labs servers are protected from DDoS attacks using G-Core Labs unique technology for intelligent filtering of network traffic.
The dedicated servers of the company provide constant free access to their IPMI (note - abbr. from the intelligent platform management interface), which allows to quickly solve any issue with hosting in a remote format even in case of a emergency situation.
