Once again, Dyn has expanded our global footprint in continuing our quest to be the fastest, most reliable internet performance solutions company in the world. We say hello (namaste!) to our newest data center located in Mumbai, India, increasing our anycast Points of Presence (PoP) to 18.
Our Mumbai POP was introduced into our Global IP anycast network on August 2, 2013, at 17:30 UTC. Mumbai is our first strategic POP within India and users in south Asia should expect a reduction in DNS latency by 200ms on average. This Catchpoint graph below shows the before and after effects of our Mumbai POP turn-up and I have to say the results are quite dramatic!
We have collocated with GPX Global Systems, a carrier-neutral data center located located just outside of the metropolis. GPX is the first ‘Uptime Certified’ TIER IV Designed Data Center in south Asia.
Our transit providers are some of the usual ones like TATA Communications and a new one — Bharti Airtel — which is a global player that carries a ton of local connectivity. By leveraging both local and global carriers, we provide the best service possible for our customers. We will be soon adding more transit providers to the anycast network for better response time and resiliency overall.
Our data center operations team worked hard to put contracts in place, get equipment into India, work with the GPX team to get servers, power and network gear racked and running. We are very excited to see the results of all the hard work and to see a site go from planned to active on our anycast network map!
