G-Core Labs, an international provider of cloud and edge solutions, continues to grow in the Latin American market and opens a new point of presence for its network infrastructure in Buenos Aires, the capital of Argentina. The location offers customers fast content delivery services with an average response time of 30 ms (according to Citrix, an independent analytics system) and will be in demand by any broadcasters and online businesses that work with local audiences.
Earlier this year, the company has already announced its plans for network infrastructure development in the Latin American continent: G-Core Labs will open 5 new CDN points of presence here by the end of the year. Thus, the company will be able to claim a constant leadership in the delivery speed of even the heaviest types of content in this region.
"The point of presence in Argentina is an important element of the Latin American segment of G-Core Labs infrastructure. The country is one of the three leading economies in the region and shows a consistent growth rate of Internet penetration: if today the world network is used by about 70% of the population of Argentina, by 2025, it is expected that 75% of residents of this country will regularly work, buy, watch and play using the Internet. We also note the interest in the region from our global clients from the e-commerce, gaming and media industries", – said Dmitry Samoshkin, G-Core Labs vice president of products.
The point of presence is located in a certified Tier III class data center. G-Core Labs CDN supports all necessary protocols, including HTTP/2 (by default), SSL and IPv6, and also provides flexible system configuration options: access through the API, opportunities to pre-load heavy files, to clear cache completely or selectively, to set and manage cache storing time, cache return, inheriting caching parameters, to ignore request parameters and cookies etc.
The global architecture of G-Core Labs content delivery network, located on 5 continents, was created by experts on high-load systems. Today, it includes more than 100 points of presence in 65+ cities & 5000+ peering partners. The network capacity is 10+Tbit/sec.
