G-Core Labs, the international provider of cloud and edge solutions, is expanding its presence in South America by opening a new point of presence of its content delivery network in Santiago, Chile's capital. The location shows an average response time of 24 ms (according to Citrix, the independent analytical system), successfully competing with local and American CDN service providers.
“In 2020 we are planning a significant growth of our infrastructure on the Latin American continent, here we want to open about 5 new points of presence. We start with Chile, which is one of top 5 countries in the southern part of the New world in terms of internet penetration. More than 15 mln people here regularly use the global network, that is 82,3% of country’s population. The media and entertainment markets are actively developing in Chile, people buy in online stores and study in a remote format - and each of these cases needs a fast content delivery network, allowing companies to transfer powerful video streams with audience’s favorite movies, games or meetings & lectures broadcasts in millisecond, as well as to accelerate online stores work. This is especially important in the current period of self-isolation”, - said Dmitry Samoshkin, G-Core Labs vice president of products.
The point of presence is located in a certified Tier III class data center. G-Core Labs CDN supports all necessary protocols, including HTTP/2 (by default), SSL and IPv6, and also provides flexible system configuration options: access through the API, opportunities to pre-load heavy files, to clear cache completely or selectively, to set and manage cache storing time, cache return, inheriting caching parameters, to ignore request parameters and cookies etc.
The global architecture of G-Core Labs content delivery network, located on 5 continents, was created by experts on high-load systems. Today, it includes more than 60 points of presence, 5000+ peering partners, 300+ cash servers and the total network capacity is 10+ Tbit/sec.

On CDN (сontent delivery network)
CDN is a content delivery network. Most often it is a set of connected servers that accelerate the "return" of data (pics, videos, scripts) to the user. CDN servers are placed as close as possible to the final audience. The CDN takes the popular content to the cache servers that accumulate it, temporarily store (cache) and give it on subsequent requests. Locating servers closer to users reduces the number of hops, latency and server response time. This way content becomes locally accessible to end users. This factor improves final users experience and turns website visitors into paying customers.
G-Core Labs created its own global content delivery network (CDN) on 5 continents to solve the difficult problem of instantly transmitting the heaviest type of content — high-quality online games, with peak loads on the system. The infrastructure created was tested by millions of users playing at the same time & became the owner of the Guinness record. After that G-Core Labs decided to benefit all companies interested in the instantaneous transfer of content, speeding up their websites and online stores and their highly efficient protection.
G-Core Labs network is ready for any peak traffic, the total network bandwidth exceeds 10+ Tbit/s. G-Core Labs has about 5000 peering partners, agreements with major operators and an ISP license.
