• Linxdatacenter assists G-Core Labs to expand its CDN and product ecosystem

    Publication date - 6 December 2021

    Linxdatacenter and G-Core Labs develop cooperation in expanding the ecosystem of CDN-based products of G-Core Labs, along with streaming and cloud solutions.

    G-Core Labs is an international provider of edge solutions and an operator of the global content delivery network (CDN). G-Core Labs currently manages a CDN consisting of more than 140 PoPs on five continents, which includes over 6,000 traffic peering partners.

    CDN is a network containing multiple interconnected servers, aimed to accelerate processing of enquiries sent to IT systems and delivery of required content to the users (multimedia, scripts, websites). To guarantee the speediest response, the most sought-after content is stored on cache servers located in the closest proximity to the end user.

    One of the key characteristics of CDN solutions which serves as the basis for the business model of providers in this niche is fault-tolerance and backups. Uninterrupted availability of content and its instant delivery upon request at any moment of time are made possible due to the expertise of partner data centers hosting the network elements.

    In the process of the global CDN expansion and increase of its fault tolerance, part of G-Core Labs’ infrastructure was hosted on the sites of Linxdatacenter in Moscow and Saint Petersburg.

    “Linxdatacenter facilities have a reputation of beingreliable locations for deployment of a content delivery network. G-Core Labs receives all necessary support to implement solution configurations answering specific customer needs. The company’s technical specialists have 24/7 access to their equipment, which enables them to carry out any maintenance without delay, as well as upgrade infrastructure for new services and solutions,” comments Roman Shulimov, Sales Director at Linxdatacenter.

    The capacity of G-Core Labs’ network exceeds 90 Tbit/s which allows the company to update their products and services portfolio constantly.

    The company launched its own streaming platform in 2018 to transmit video without interruptions all over the world. In 2019, the CDN of G-Core Labs covered all continents of the planet except for the Antarctic for the first time. The company’s own cloud platform was deployed the same year.    

    Support of the HESP protocol, launched in October 2021, enables live transmissions for multimillion audience with minimal two seconds lags from any part of the world.  

    “One of the major conditions for fast development of our business is a network of competent and reliable partners whose cooperation is necessary to ensure fast provision of infrastructure for end services. Our experience of working with Linxdatacenter allows to plan a wide range of scenarios for future development,” adds Dmitry Samoshkin, VP Products at G-Core Labs.
