Hurricane Electric, a global IPv4 and IPv6 network exchanging traffic directly with more than 7,500 different networks, has added a new Point of Presence (PoP) at e-shelter – an owner/operator and developer of large-scale data centers art locations across Europe. The new network PoP is located in the Spandau district of Berlin, Germany.
This PoP is Hurricane Electric’s second in Berlin and eleventh in Germany and would provide enterprises in Berlin with improved fault tolerance, load balancing and congestion management in the delivery of “next generation” IP connectivity services.
According to a recent report, Berlin is on pace to become Europe’s next big tech hub. Just last year, German startups raised a record amount of capital, with the majority of funding going to companies based in Berlin.
