Multiple new Cloudflare Datacenter’s Online, Italy, Armenia, Ecuador

Datacenter Rome, Italy

We’re excited to announce Cloudflare’s 105th data center in Rome. Visitors in Italy (and especially around the region of Lazio) to over 6 million Internet properties now benefit from reduced latency and increased security. As Cloudfalre’s global network grows in breadth and capacity, they are able to stop attacks (typically, outside of Italy!), while serving legitimate traffic from their nearest in-country data center. Rome serves as a point of redundancy to Cloudfalre’s existing data center in Milan, and expands Cloudflare’s Europe network to 29 cities, with at least five more cities already in the works.

Datacenter Yerevan, Armenia

 

Yerevan, one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world, has a rich history going back all the way to 782 BC. Famous for its cognac, lavash flatbread, and beautiful medieval churches, Armenia is also home to more chess grand-masters per capita than most countries!

Datacenter Quito, Ecuador

Located only 15 miles from the Equator, we are excited to announce Cloudflare’s newest data center in the World Heritage City of Quito, Ecuador. This deployment is made possible in partnership with the NAP.EC Internet exchange run by AEPROVI (Asociación de empresas proveedoras de servicios de internet). Cloudflare’s newest data center expands the growing Latin America network to six cities, joining Buenos Aires (Argentina), Lima (Peru), Medellin (Colombia), Sao Paulo (Brazil) and Valparaiso (Chile). Quito is Cloudflare’s 104th deployment globally

Several new cities are in the work around the globe, so we will have more announcements.

Barcelona! Cloudflare’s 101st data center

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.

This means not only better performance in Catalonia and Spain, but additional redundancy for Cloudflare’s European data centers.

Bangkok, Thailand: CloudFlare’s 79th Data Center

CloudFlare turned up their newest data center in Bangkok, the capital of Thailand and a very popular destination with travelers in Southeast Asia. This expands their network to span 32 cities across Asia, and 79 cities globally.

Thailand, with a population of 65 million, is the fourth largest country in Southeast Asia. As the central interconnection point for all Internet communications within the country, Bangkok was the natural choice for our newest deployment.

Cloudflare announced the first of a series of agreements with carriers in Thailand. JasTel Network Company is the partner for their first Bangkok data center. By moving JasTel customers’ access to the CloudFlare network from Singapore and Hong Kong into a local datacenter in Bangkok, they helped build a better Internet experience for the JasTel users across the country.

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.

 

Oslo and Minneapolis data centers added to cloudflare

With Oslo, Cloudflare has now built their third data center in Scandinavia. The Oslo data center now joins their existing facilities in Stockholm and Copenhagen. With a data center in Norway, Cloudflare recognized an important country that stands above others with a staggering 95.05% of the population having Internet connectivity. This Internet penetration rate is the fourth best in the world.

Minneapolis data center will be able to serve more than just Minnesota. With the Midwest Internet Cooperative Exchange MICE, a local peering point, having CloudFlare as a new participant, Cloudflare will be able to provide their customers with excellent coverage of this area.

As a Cloudflare partner 040 Hosting offers this service on any shared/reseller/semi-dedicated server ; so as from today your data will also be able to transfer faster in Oslo (and thus Norway) and Minneapolis.
