CacheFly, a company that developed TCP-anycast based Content Delivery Network (CDN), has partnered with Equinix, a large IBX data center and colocation provider, to expand its Australian network presence to Melbourne. With edge caches now in three Australian locations—in addition to Sydney (Equinix), and Perth (WAIX), CacheFly significantly improves its Australian visibility and delivery, positioning itself as a premier CDN for Australia.
CacheFly said that its decision to deploy in Equinix’s $60 million data center facility dubbed “ME1,” in Melbourne—Australia’s second largest market—comes in response to the high projected growth of Internet traffic in Australia. Melbourne marks CacheFly's 41st POP, globally, following its recent launch of POPs in Jakarta, Indonesia and La Paz, Bolivia.
