The world’s largest IPv4 and IPv6-native Internet backbone, Hurricane Electric, just expanded its global presence. The company established 13 new PoPs worldwide across the EdgeConneX data center footprint. The new Edge PoPs are located in data-hungry markets including: Munich, Warsaw, Toronto, Phoenix, Santa Clara, Atlanta, Denver, Detroit, Las Vegas, Portland, Nashville, Salt Lake City and Seattle.
So, enterprises in these markets will now have access to essential low latency bandwidth options. They will also be able to utilize network access to hybrid and multi-cloud ecosystems to support their growing data-centric and latency sensitive application needs.
Hurricane Electric shares EdgeConneX’ mission to bring the Edge closer to their customers. The company will leverage EdgeConneX’ rich partnership ecosystem of network of cloud and content-rich providers. And the new PoPs will also provide critical IT infrastructure, IP transit, bandwidth and cloud access options to meet accelerating enterprise demand in key Edge markets.
“Hurricane Electric is excited to expand our relationship with EdgeConneX and offer a best-in-class IP transit service to enterprises across the EdgeConneX global footprint. Joining the EdgeConneX growing global ecosystem of partners and edge data centers will provide invaluable IP transit and connectivity resources to enterprises operating in these in-need markets.” – Walt Wollny, Director of Interconnection Strategy at Hurricane Electric
“We often reference the edge being as proximate to the end-user as possible, but there is, in fact, a ‘new edge’ to consider. The ‘new edge’ could even be looked at as ‘Edge to the Home’ as a more distributed workforce becomes the norm. We continue to address this evolving demand by bringing our considerable edge partner ecosystem to the front doors of innovators and digital transformers everywhere, be it a business or remote worker location. That’s our mission and why we’re honored to bring folks like Hurricane Electric into our ecosystem of digital transformation enablers.” – Aron Smith, Vice President of Interconnection Product Management at EdgeConneX
