“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 mln 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 centres of eSports development in the region.”

It is expected that the 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 functionality of the automatic installation of the most popular operating systems (OS) (Windows and Unix), installed when ordering the server, is provided in company’s virtual servers.

All G-Core Labs servers are protected from DDoS attacks using G-Core Labs technology for filtering of network traffic.
