G-Core Labs has expanded its content delivery network infrastructure in Russia and in CIS countries.

The company has opened new CDN points in the capitals of Armenia and Azerbaijan - Yerevan and Baku - and has launched an extra CDN cluster in Kazan, Russia.

Sam Davis (pictured), vice president of products at G-Core Labs, said: “The launch of three new locations has allowed us to set new content delivery rate records in the region among local and international providers.

“Minimising delays with CDN propels online business development, especially in areas requiring peak speed under high loads. Speeding up websites fuels conversion and pre-loading the content relieves the client’s own infrastructure,” said Davis.

The Yerevan CDN data centre site, for instance, allows the company to deliver content with delays of about 5 ms, it said, which is “five times faster” than the networks of competitors, claims the company.

The firm now has over 120 points-of-presence (PoP) in over 100 cities worldwide, with the overall network capacity exceeding over 75Tbps. It is also planning an additional PoP in Uzbekistan.
