G-Core Labs, an international CDN provider delivering cloud, hosting and edge solutions, has expanded its global infrastructure with the opening of a new Point-of-Presence (PoP) for its hosting and content delivery network in Madrid. This new PoP in the Spanish capital offers customers dedicated and virtual servers with protection against DDoS attacks of any complexity and volume, as well as services for fast delivery of content.

It is expected that G-Core Labs’ new PoP in Madrid will be useful both in Spain itself, and among European, Asian and American companies seeking to work effectively in the local and regional markets.

“The new PoP in Madrid will provide access speed to dedicated servers of at least 10 Gbit/s, without traffic limitations, even in conditions of high loads,” said Andre Reitenbach, managing director of G-Core Labs.

“Madrid is a very important location for G-Core Labs global network infrastructure. Firstly, the Spanish capital is one of the largest economic centers in Europe. By opening a hosting and CDN point in Madrid, we support our corporate clients focused on business in the Western European region,” said Andre Reitenbach, managing director of G-Core Labs. “The new location will provide access speed to dedicated servers of at least 10 Gbit/s, without traffic limitations, even in conditions of high loads. Secondly, Spain belongs to countries with a high level of Internet penetration, more than 68% of the population are active users of the network, this is more than 31 million Internet users every month. At the same time, the country has a double-digit growth rate of e-commerce and is considered as one of unofficial centers of eSports development in the region.”

The dedicated servers of G-Core Labs provide constant free access to their IPMI (note – abbr. from the intelligent platform management interface), which would allow to quickly solve any issue with hosting in a remote format even in case of an emergency situation.

G-Core Labs CDN supports all necessary protocols, including HTTP/2 (by default), SSL and IPv6, and also provides flexible system configuration options: access through the API, opportunities to pre-load heavy files, to clear cache completely or selectively, to set and manage cache storing time, cache return, inheriting caching parameters, to ignore request parameters and cookies, etc.
