A new LATAM cloud Point-of-Presence (PoP) has been launched by G-Core Labs, a global CDN provider delivering cloud and edge solutions. Strengthening the company’s global infrastructure, the new cloud PoP is located in São Paulo, Brazil. As a result, the fourth-largest Brazilian city in terms of population can now make use of G-Core Labs’ solutions including virtual machines and bare metal servers.
By bringing cloud-hosted services closer to end users and enhancing application reliability, local cloud Points-of-Presence are able to reduce latency. G-Core’s Brazilian customers now have easy access to bare metal servers and virtual machines thanks to this new cloud PoP.
Additionally, customers in this region can now access G-Core cloud services and products like load balancers, cloud firewalls, Managed Kubernetes, application marketplaces, snapshots, public and private IP addresses, and more. G-Core Labs plans to expand its presence in the area and introduce PaaS solutions in São Paulo including Managed Logging as a Service, Function as a Service, and its recently introduced AI Infrastructure-as-a-Service.
“Since Latin America is one of the fastest-growing regions in terms of eCommerce and SaaS services, it is critically important for businesses and developers to have powerful and easily-scalable infrastructure right where its audience is located,” said Seva Vayner, Director of Edge Cloud at G-Core Labs. “Our new cloud PoP with instantly deployable virtual machines and high-performance bare-metal servers will help businesses to always stay in touch with users in Brazil, no matter how many resources you need.”
Bare Metal Servers
This São Paulo cloud PoP location is the most recent addition to G-Core’s fast growing global network. More than 15 cities, including Luxembourg, Amsterdam, Singapore, Hong Kong, Tokyo, and Johannesburg, have access to the company’s public cloud infrastructure. G-Core Labs is steadily expanding the capacities of its global infrastructure and is aiming to run over 40 extra cloud PoPs globally in the near future.
In addition to its growing global presence, the easy availability of bare metal servers would be a key differentiator for G-Core Labs compared to the traditional big clouds, according to the company itself. Bare metal servers, in contrast to virtual servers, can offer more powerful compute infrastructure. These are suitable for tasks where there is no need for scaling configuration, while also minimal latency is required. Bare metal can be used for deploying resource intensive applications such as game servers and databases. According to G-Core Labs, their bare metal servers are based on new “high-performance and fault-tolerant” equipment from leading manufacturers.
