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.

About 040Hosting: 040Hosting offers servers around the globe, but if your visitor comes from a location we do not serve from directly you can enable Cloudflare on our servers, which makes your site faster for everyone around the globe.
