Kiev (Kyiv), Ukraine: CloudFlare’s 78th Data Center

Cloudflare turned up their datacenter in Kiev ( Kyiv ), the capital and largest city of Ukraine.

Kiev is an old city with more than 1,000 years of history. It was the capital of Kievan Rus’, an ancient country which is considered to be the ancestor of modern Ukraine, Belarus and Russia. If you visit the city by plane, you may be almost blinded by the shining golden domes of numerous old churches and cathedrals – and once there, be sure to try the famous Ukrainian beet soup, “Borscht”. CloudFlare decided to contribute to the long history of Kiev with their 22nd data center in Europe, and their 78th data center globally.

 

Taipei: CloudFlare’s 77th Data Center

Cloudflare has launched their Taipei data center, which is Cloudflare’s 28th data center in Asia, and their 77th data center globally. Millions of websites which were previously served from Hong Kong are now served locally from Taipei.

Taipei has one of the fastest Internet speeds. Yet, being located far away from other Internet interconnect centers makes for some unique challenges. When traffic is delivered to local eyeballs from Hong Kong, Tokyo, Singapore or worse-still Los Angeles, it is often subject to long latency and the constraints of limited capacity before arriving in Taipei. Additionally, traffic flowing on undersea cables around Taipei have been subject to cable cuts over the years, mainly because of the active fault lines around the island.

With the launch of our Taipei data center, visitors to millions of CloudFlare websites will experience a 4x improvement in performance and a significant increase in availability.

Cloudflare is going to announce 2 more datacenters in Asia soon.
