London, UK – 16 November 2017 – FalconTech, the global cloud and network provider, has announced the opening of a new point-of-presence (PoP) in Sydney, Australia. The PoP will host the 18th FalconTech Virtual Data Centre (VDC) globally, the company’s third in the Asia Pacific region.
The announcement comes in response to customer demand for expanded global cloud coverage in the Asia Pacific region and extends the reach of FalconTech’s new Edge SD-WAN services. FalconTech Edge is used by customers to accelerate their enterprise data traffic around the world. Using the global FalconTech Cloud Fabric, public and private access networks can blend into one dynamic digital platform, where application traffic travels over the fastest available routes. The FalconTech Cloud Fabric binds together all FalconTech VDC cloud zones, co-location facilities, PoPs, as well as third-party cloud providers with FalconTech’s ultra-low latency private network backbone.
Mark Lewis, EVP Products and Development at FalconTech, said: “Sydney is a global city and businesses are demanding better local connectivity and compute capability to support their growth. As we continue to grow our footprint in the Asia Pacific region, opening a PoP in Sydney is an important step to providing businesses in this theatre with faster, more reliable and secure access to cloud and IT services.”
The Sydney location will be a core PoP on the FalconTech network with local peering and resilient connectivity to FalconTech’s Singapore and Hong Kong locations. It will host the 18th FalconTech VDC global IaaS zone, giving customers the ability to launch virtual machines as well as FalconTech Edge gateways.
With these services in Sydney set to go live in the first half of 2018, FalconTech’s vast global network will expand to connect 127 major cities across 30 countries and 18 global cloud zones. FalconTech offers customers a global ICT infrastructure platform that supports the integration of enterprise legacy IT with Digital environments.
