CloudFlare deploys in NextDC Melbourne data centre Featured

By

Global Internet performance and security company  CloudFlare has expanded into Melbourne with deployment to NextDC’s M1 data centre.

Launched in 2009 in San Francisco, the CloudFlare network optimises any website, mobile app or API in order to improve load times and performance, and also blocks threats, including distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks.

Joshua Motta, director of special projects at CloudFlare said CloudFlare was committed to building the world’s most performant and secure network, “and our expansion into Melbourne ensures greater performance and content localisation in Australia”.

“We chose NEXTDC because of its trusted reputation and dense interconnection environment. Adding a new data centre in Melbourne is just one more way CloudFlare is improving the speed and reliability of our two million customers’ applications in the Oceania region.”

Motta said CloudFlare’s deployment in Melbourne marks its 34th data centre globally, and its third in Oceania following deployments in Sydney and Auckland.

According to NextDC CEO Craig Scroggie, CloudFlare’s presence at its Melbourne data centre has opened up new possibilities for Australian organisations doing business internationally, and “illustrates the importance to the domestic market of data centres like M1 that offers a world-class service to the world’s leading IT companies and encourages their investment in Australia.”

Scroggie said the M1 facility in Port Melbourne is Melbourne’s largest and most connected colocation data centre, and the presence of international CDN providers like CloudFlare continues to expand and develop the diversity of the M1 “unique ecosystem of carriers and IT service providers of all kinds”.
