Content Delivery Network (CDN) provider, CacheFly, has partnered with Equinix, one of the world’s largest colocation providers, to expand its Australian CDN network presence to Melbourne.
CacheFly’s decision to deploy in Equinix’s $60 million data center facility dubbed “ME1,” in Melbourne – Australia’s second largest market – comes in response to the high projected growth of Internet traffic in Australia. Analyst firms such as Frost & Sullivan predict the Australian IaaS market to grow at a CAGR of 14 percent between 2013 and 2020, reaching $1.36 billion by 2020.
Melbourne marks CacheFly‘s 41st POP, globally, following its recent launch of POPs in Jakarta, Indonesia and La Paz, Bolivia.
With edge caches now in three Australian locations – in addition to Sydney (Equinix), and Perth (WAIX), CacheFly would significantly improve its Australian visibility and delivery, making it an optimal solution for organizations targeting end-users in Australia.
“We’re committed to providing the fastest CDN for content providers with Aussie-focused traffic,” said Matt Levine, CTO and founder of CacheFly. “Adding Melbourne to our existing presence in Australia ensures that end users will receive incomparably faster delivery than with any other CDN.”
Launched in 2002, CacheFly delivers its TCP-anycast based Content Delivery Network (CDN) services to thousands of clients, based in over 80 countries around the globe.
“CacheFly’s deployment in ME1 is further proof that Equinix’s interconnection solutions provide a competitive edge for business,” said Jeremy Deutsch, Managing Director, Equinix Australia. “CacheFly is a clear leader amongst Content Delivery Networks (CDNs), whilst Equinix is dedicated to bringing global leaders the power of interconnection. With ME1, CacheFly now has the ability to connect in many ways to many customers, partners and geographies in order to accelerate its business performance and create new opportunities.”
