Located alongside the Mediterranean, Barcelona, is the capital of the autonomous community of Catalonia, the second-most populated municipality in Spain and the core of the fifth-most populous urban area in the Europe. Cloudflare’s data center in Barcelona is their 3rd in the Iberian Peninsula following the deployments in Madrid and Lisbon, it is Cloudflares 28th in Europe, and 101st globally. This means not only better performance in Catalonia and Spain, but additional redundancy for Cloudflare’s European data centers.
As of this moment, Cloudflare has a point of presence (PoP) in 7 out of Europe’s 10 most populous urban areas, and with number 8 coming soon. Rome, Italy.
Cloudflare has connected to the Catalunya Neutral Internet Exchange (“CATNIX”). This raises the number of exchanges that Cloudflare is a participant in to over 150. As Cloudflare expands their peering, more visitors get served locally. If you wish to connect with Cloudflare at CATNIX (or any of our other locations) you can find their peering details on their PeeringDB profile.
