G-CORE Description

G-Core, or G-Core Labs S.A. is an IT solutions provider based in Luxembourg. The company offers a variety of services such as peering network, hosting and CDN services. G-Core was founded in 2014 by the team behind Wargaming Interactive, the Russian game development studio of World of Tanks and World of Warships.

Developed to support online gaming, G-Core’s core KPIs are low latency, high availability and cost optimisation. From their experience with the Wargaming user base, a gaming-tailored CDN and IT infrastructure emerged that is both suitable for gaming parties, as well as clients in any other web content industry.

G-Core is what we consider a local or regional CDN provider and focuses on the Russia and CIS region. With 12 PoPs spread across all regions in Russia and CIS, the company aims to provide the most optimal content delivery to gamers and web users in the area. However, they have also expanded outside of Russia and the CIS region with PoPs in Europe, North-America, and Asia.

Next to their CDN services, G-Core provides cloud hosting, co-location, DDoS protection, private information policy assistance and a wide range of support services to their clients. G-Core uses OpenStack to manage their networking, compute and storage resources.

Clients of G-Core are Wargaming and gaming and e-Sports live streaming platform Hitbox.

CLOUDFLARE Description

Not to be confused with Amazon Cloudfront, CloudFlare is a San Francisco-based CDN provider founded in 2009.

The company offers a Free plan, which includes a CloudFlare issued SSL certificate. The features included in the Free plan are basic; more become available to Pro, Business and Enterprise customers.

CloudFlare, together with Akamai, Fastly, Highwinds, Level3 and EdgeCast, is part of the Google Cloud Platform CDN Interconnect program. As part of the collaboration, 30 CloudFlare points-of-presence (PoPs) are directly connected to the Google Cloud infrastructure. When a content request comes in from a Google Cloud origin it will route directly through the interconnect between both parties rather than through the public Internet. As a result, latency is reduced for origin requests. Clients using Google Cloud also receive a discount to their egress traffic.

CloudFlare serves, and has served notable brands such as Reddit, Ello, Cisco, Zendesk, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, OkCupid and eHarmony.
