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.

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.
