Leaseweb, a global provider of cloud hosting, dedicated servers, CDN solutions and more, has hired Wilfried Dudink as managing director of its CDN operations. In this position he is responsible for further expansion of Leaseweb’s CDN activities. Prior to joining Leaseweb, Mr. Dudink spent seven years at CenturyLink, where he focused specifically on CDNs, website acceleration and media distribution in EMEA.
“Our CDN division has traditionally provided customers with a reliable content distribution platform. However, there is still a lot of untapped potential,” said Con Zwinkels, CEO and co-owner of Leaseweb. “This applies both to our global network and the ability to combine services. Wilfried is the right person to take these activities to the next level and show customers what a CDN can do for them.”
Wilfried Dudink has over 25 years of experience in the ICT sector. Prior to CenturyLink, Mr. Dudink worked for Deutsche Telekom, Telia International Carrier and Limelight Networks, among others. At these companies he gained market and product experience with CDNs and network infrastructures. Dudink was also chairman of the board of the Amsterdam Internet Exchange (AMS-IX).
“I believe that Leaseweb is excellently positioned to provide customers with the right combination of hosting solutions they need to be successful. For me it’s great to be able to assist in further expanding these business activities,” said Wilfried Dudink. “CDNs are becoming increasingly important for the success of our customers. This is the result of exponential growth of live and on-demand video, gaming, eSports, IoT traffic and downloads. All that content must be readily available from any location, and the delivery must be accompanied by an optimal user experience. Leaseweb makes this possible with its new Multi CDN platform, which invariably uses the best connected Points-of-Presence of the CDN network. This allows for transfering content with the lowest latency possible.”
CDN, Cloud and Servers
Leaseweb’s CDN services would utilize a combination of “leading” local and global content delivery networks, including Leaseweb’s own CDN, with a “state-of-the-art” switching platform and technology partner solutions. This would result in an optimal supply of media, game content and downloads. The CDN offering includes a Multi-CDN and a dedicated Private CDN.
Leaseweb manages more than 80,000 server. The company has 20 data centers in locations across Europe, Asia, Australia and North America. Leaseweb‘s range of services includes include public cloud, private cloud, dedicated servers, colocation, CDN, and cyber security services. Its hosting solutions are supported by a global network backbone with a total capacity of over 6 Tbps.
International cloud and edge solutions provider for content delivery and hosting as well as security, G-Core Labs, is expanding their European network by opening a new Point-of-Presence in Paris, France. The new location provides hosting services on dedicated or virtual servers, while it also complements the company’s global content delivery network (CDN) architecture with claimed fast response times of 34ms on the local market.
Located in a Tier 3 certified data center, the new Point-of-Presence would guarantee access speed to a dedicated server or virtual server of 200 Mbit/s. The new PoP would cater to the needs of companies aiming to work without delay, including suppliers of games and entertainment content, as well as media, online retail and companies within the financial sector.
“Paris is one of the four main Internet hubs in the world, and many companies view the city as a promising and reliable location when choosing a hosting for their businesses,” said Andre Reitenbach, managing director of G-Core Labs. “Therefore, the appearance here of G-Core Labs point of presence is a logical step. Our servers are built on new high-performance and fault-tolerant equipment from leading manufacturers, incl. HP and Dell. However, in case of a need to increase a capacity for any dedicated server, the necessary improvement can be made.”
Located on 5 continents, the global architecture of G-Core Labs’ content delivery network was created by experts on high-load systems. Today, it includes more than 50 Points-of-Presence, 4000+ peering partners, 100+ cash servers, while operating daily with a traffic volume of 3,5+ Tbit/s.
