G-Core Labs is expanding its infrastructure in the Middle East by opening a new point of presence for its content delivery network in Tel Aviv.
"Today, the Middle East is one of the world's fastest growing markets from the point of view of digital content consumption. Analysts predict the growth of the local segment of online video by 22% over the next 5 years, due to the large number of young people who are refusing cable and ordering digital subscriptions. In this regard, the opening of a new point of presence of our global infrastructure in one of the most important economic centres of the region looks like a logical step and opens up good opportunities for any companies which develop their business online and have customers or an audience here", said Andre Reitenbach, managing director of G-Core Labs.
G-Core Labs’ global content delivery network is located on 5 continents, and its total bandwidth exceeds 7 Tbit/sec, making it capable of dealing with peak loads. The company has more than 50 points of presence, about 4000 peering partners, agreements with major operators and an ISP license.
The average response time of company's network here is 21 msec (according to the independent analytical system Citrix), which is one of the best results in the region. This is based on the parameters of bandwidth (the amount of data that site transmits for a certain time) and response time (the actual time of requests processing plus the delay in the transmission of information over the network and the delay of messages in the queue).
As part of the hosting service in Tel Aviv, dedicated and virtual servers are available for ordering. These servers are located in Tier III certified data centre which guarantees 99,982% infrastructure fault tolerance. The company's servers provide permanent free access to their IPMI (intelligent platform management interface), allowing even in case of emergency to quickly resolve any issue with hosting in a remote format.
