Cloudflare opens Sofia, Bulgaria Datacenter

CloudFlare is excited to announce yet another European data center – this time in Sofia, Bulgaria. With over 1.2 million people, Sofia is a city with rich history tracing back over 7,000 years.

Each time CloudFlare launches a new data center, they improve the performance of millions of websites, expand the surface area available to fight attacks, and provide an additional point of redundancy to support their existing data centers. Many Bulgarian networks were served out of Frankfurt, over 1,000 miles away, based on their interconnection there with our tier one providers. With CloudFlare enabled on a website this belongs to the past en traffic within Bulgaria will be much faster as before.

Cloudflare in Mumbai, Chennai and New Delhi, India

India is home to 400 million Internet users, second only to China, and will add more new users this year than any other country in the world. CloudFlare protects and accelerates 4 million websites, mobile apps and APIs, and is trusted by over 10,000 new customers each day. Combine these forces, and we are positioned to connect hundreds of millions of Indian users with the millions of internet applications they use each day.

Today, Cloudflare announces three new points of presence (PoPs) in Mumbai, Chennai and New Delhi. These new sites represent the 66th, 67th and 68th data centers respectively across Cloudflare’s global network.

Cloudflare’s expansion into India brings them to 38 new data centers launched year-to-date in 2015.

Copenhagen, Denmark: CloudFlare’s 65th data center

It is a pleasure for us as CloudFlare Partner to introduce CloudFlare’s latest PoP (point of presence) in Copenhagen, Denmark. CloudFlare’s Copenhagen data center extends the CloudFlare network to 65 PoPs across 34 countries, with 17 in Europe alone. The CloudFlare network, including all of the Internet applications and content of our users, is now delivered with a median latency of under 40ms throughout the entire continent—by comparison, it takes 300-400ms to blink one’s eyes!

 

Phoenix, AZ: CloudFlare’s 64th data center

Cloudflare as extended their presence in the USA by adding a new location in Phoenix, Arizona, which is the 11th point of presence in North America for Cloudflare.

This means faster page loads and transaction speeds for your sites and applications, as well as for the 6 million Internet users throughout the Southwestern US that use them.

The vast majority of Internet traffic in the US is exchanged in only a small handful of cities: Los Angeles, the San Francisco Bay Area, Dallas, Chicago, Miami, Ashburn (Virginia) and New York. These locations evolved into key interconnection points largely as a result of their status as population and economic centers. However, if you’re one of the 236 million Americans that live outside of these metro areas, you have to hike quite a bit further to access your favorite content on the Internet.

So with this in mind Cloudflare has expanded their presence by adding the Phoenix location. Want to learn more what Cloudflare did in Phoenix to make your sites faster from the region, we suggest to read the full post at the Cloudflare blog.

Cloudflare; China Datacenters

Cloudflare took a large step towards China, however due to regulation reasons currently only Enterprise customers of Cloudflare will be able to activate this region, this will be changed in the coming time according to Cloudflare, however you will still need an Internet Content Provider (ICP) license number to be allowed to serve your content in this region.

If your company is relying heavily on China and you must have a local presence there, you may want to check out the cloudflare page about this subject at the Cloudflare website

Cloudflare starts out in the following 17 Datacenter Locations: Qingdao, Fuzhou, Hengyang, Dongguan, Shenyang, Luoyang, Hangzhou, Jiaxing, Tianjin, Guangzhou, Chengdu, Langfang, Xian, Nanning, Zhengzhou, Shijiazhuang, and Foshan.

In the months ahead, they will continue to expand their footprint in the country, and expect that by the end of 2016 there will be more locations in mainland China than exist across all the rest of CloudFlare’s network today.
