CDN77 a 14+Tbps Content Delivery Network, with 35 PoPs in strategic IX locations around the globe, has selected European data center operator maincubes as its colocation partner for establishing a Point-of-Presence in Frankfurt, Germany. maincubes is able to provide CDN77 with 100% uptime guarantees, sufficient scaling options as well as individual support.
CDN77 used to house its Frankfurt PoP with one of the world’s largest data center operators, but CDN77 was searching for an individual approach and reliable onsite support. “We were lacking much needed flexibility and personal approach with our previous colocation provider in Frankfurt,” said Zdenek Cendra, founder and CEO of CDN77. “Even with our most urgent requests we sometimes had to wait for more than 24 hours to get a response. Their latest outage with downtime of more than 6 hours, and inability to communicate in real-time with us was the last straw. Difficulties like these were negatively impacting our business operations and customer satisfaction.”
The CDN PoP now being established in maincubes’ FRA01 data center in Frankfurt, Germany, encompasses multiple racks filled with server and network equipment. This PoP is one of CDN77’s 35 CDN PoPs globally. According to CDN77, the company’s Frankfurt PoP is one of its most important network nodes in Europe and also a growing one. CDN77 expects its number of racks deployed in maincubes FRA01 to triple in 2020.
