We’re very excited to announce the opening of our newest datacenter in Singapore! This marks Linode’s seventh datacenter, and is purpose-built to serve the already huge and growing markets in Southeast Asia, India, Australia, and surrounding regions.
We’ve spent the majority of the past few months working on getting great connectivity to the Internet. Our Singapore network is powered by Cisco ASR 9000-series routers, and currently blends transit from Telstra/Pacnet and PCCW, along with direct peering into the Equinix Internet Exchange (EIE) – providing us with access to hundreds of peering opportunities. Check out our Speedtest page to test latency and download speeds.
Singapore supports all of the standard Linode features available in all of our datacenters – like 40 Gbps redundant connectivity to each hypervisor host machine, the Linode Backup service, NodeBalancers, native IPv6, etc – and is the same simple pricing as our other datacenters. Try Singapore now!
We’re also hard at work on other great news. Stay tuned!
