Continent 8 Technologies has successfully completed its latest multi-million dollar global network expansion linking the Asia Pacific, Europe and the US.

The cloud and network provider Continent 8 Technologies, has confirmed its new multi-million dollar global network expansion has been completed.

The new development links the Asia Pacific region diversely back to Europe and also directly to the US via new, dedicated points of presence in Los Angeles and Hong Kong.

As a result, by taking their global locations count to total to 27 (and growing), the company is now able to send data literally on a lap around planet Earth, boasting a ‘lap-time’ of under 300 milliseconds.

We are extremely proud to have made this further investment to take our network truly global

The company claims it has linked the world’s major global telecoms hubs with regulated jurisdictions and beyond, and provides a level of redundancy of internet access and reach which remains unrivalled in a number of sectors.

Commenting on its latest expansion, Michael Tobin, co-founder and CEO at Continent 8, said: “We are extremely proud to have made this further investment to take our network truly global, and in particular to be able to complete the project on time, on budget and to the exacting standards our customers have come to expect.

We are building an ecosystem of directly connected unique locations, customers and services. Many providers claim to be ‘global’, yet few can demonstrate such a commitment and allow their customers access to leverage their investment.”

The multi-terabit network spanning 3 continents also now underpins the company’s DDoS mitigation pedigree which many stock exchange listed clients rely on.

Continent 8 has stated that this network will also represent the foundation for new private connectivity services which allow data replication and private connectivity and secure communications across borders.
