G-Core Labs, a Luxembourg-based international provider of cloud and edge solutions, has strengthened the European segment of its global infrastructure and announced the opening of a new point of presence (PoP) of its hosting and content delivery network (CDN) in Madrid.

This new PoP in the Spanish capital claims to offer customers dedicated and virtual servers with protection against DDoS attacks of any complexity and volume, as well as services for fast delivery of content with an average response time of 30 ms (according to Citrix analytical system).

Andre Reitenbach, Managing Director of G-Core Labs, commented: “Madrid is a very important location for G-Core Labs global network infrastructure. Firstly, the Spanish capital is one of the largest economic centres in Europe. [...] The new location will provide access speed to dedicated servers of at least 10 Gbit/s, without traffic limitations, even in conditions of high loads. Secondly, Spain belongs to countries with a high level of internet penetration, more than 68% of the population are active users of the network, this is more than 31 mln internet users every month. At the same time, the country has a double-digit growth rate of e-commerce and is considered as one of unofficial centres of eSports development in the region”.

It is expected that the new PoP in Madrid will be useful both in Spain itself and among European, Asian and American companies seeking to work effectively in the local and regional markets.

Previously, the G-Core Labs CDN had repeatedly become the leader in response speed among all major CDN service providers in France, Germany, Austria, the Czech Republic and other European countries. New G-Core Labs customers will be able to use a free CDN trial period with 300 GB of traffic.

The global architecture of G-Core Labs' CDN, located on five continents, was created by experts on high-load systems. Today, it includes over 100 PoPs in more than 65 cities around the world, has over 5,000 peering partners, more than 300 cash servers and the total network capacity is 10+ Tbit/sec.
