Webzilla, a global hosting and cloud hosting services provider, part of XBT Holding, has joined the Internet exchange (IX) in Singapore, SGIX. Webzilla is already a member of the biggest IXs in Europe – the German (DE-CIX) and the Dutch (AMS-IX) and twelve other IXs globally. SGIX will bring the total number of IXs in Webzilla’s network to fifteen.
Joining the Singapore Internet Exchange would enhance Webzilla‘s network and allow more efficient exchange of traffic. With presence on three continents, the improvement in regional traffic exchange will boost Webzilla’s ability to cater to the needs of a growing number of clients interested in the Asia Pacific.
Also, with the company’s plans to develop an online marketplace with its recently bought domain, servers.com, lower latency and stronger connection to and from developing regions would be a prerequisite.
“The Internet exchange in Singapore plays a very important role in exchange of traffic and provides valuable assistance to its members,” said Konstantin Bezruchenko, CTO of Webzilla. “Our decision to add it to our existing portfolio of IXs is without a doubt beneficial to everyone relying on our network and services.”
Webzilla owns a private backbone network linking multiple carrier-neutral datacenters in Europe (Luxembourg and the Netherlands), North America (Texas) and Asia (India and Singapore). Partnerships with most major Tier 1 providers would ensure 1,500 Gbps of total bandwidth capacity and the best connectivity, allowing seamless handling of high-volume traffic at optimal speed and lowest latency. Webzilla’s clients include customers in the most data-intensive industries, including e-commerce, game and software developers, payment platforms, FX brokers and video streaming companies.
