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.

LEASEWEB Description

LeaseWeb is a global Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) provider founded in 1997, and a daughter company of OCOM Group. LeaseWeb is a one-stop-shop for a wide range of Internet services such as colocation, cloud hosting, dedicated servers and a CDN solution.

The company is headquartered in Amsterdam, in the Netherlands.

LeaseWeb’s network includes 58 ‘PoPs’ and 6 ’SuperPoPs’. In CDN terms however it is the SuperPoPs that we consider to be the regular points-of-presence as we know them: servers where content is cached. The remaining 58 locations are networking PoPs where a request enters the LeaseWeb network, but no content is cached.

Notable customers of LeaseWeb include Kaspersky Lab, Grundig and Twenga.

LeaseWeb hosts the European hub of the Wikimedia Foundation, as part of a €300,000 gift in kind to the foundation. The company was also one of the hosting providers of Megaupload, and in 2013 wiped 630 of their dedicated servers clean of Megaupload user data. LeaseWeb issued a statement explaining their decision, stating there were no requests to to access or retain the data for over a year, and that the company had been running and maintaining the servers at its own expense. Megaupload’s assets were seized by the U.S. government and it could not pay its hosting partners. Petabytes of data were lost forever, and the act is considered a scandal and a betrayal by Megaupload sympathisers. Megaupload’s main hosting partner Carpathia, decided to keep storing the servers at their own expense. While the Carpathia servers are disconnected and stored, the data so far seems protected from destruction.

Through their Community Outreach Project, LeaseWeb supports organisations that combat cybercrime and spam by offering free hosting services. In 2009 the company ran a pilot for preventive filtering of online child porn in cooperation with Swedish company NetClean, the Dutch Ministry of Justice and the Dutch Child Porn Hotline. While from a technological perspective LeaseWeb was pleased with the outcome, there were still some hurdles to be addressed in cooperation with the Dutch National Police Services Agency.
