G-Core, or G-Core Labs S.A. is an IT solutions provider based in Luxembourg, with offices in Moscow, Minsk and Perm. In 2017 G-Core Labs acquired SkyparkCDN. 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’s infrastructure was the backbone for the world record of (‘Most Players Online Simultaneously on one MOG Server’), officially awarded to Wargaming, for serving 1.114.000 gamers simultaneously.
G-Core is what we consider a local or regional CDN provider and focuses on the Russia and CIS region. With 15 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 for a total of 36 PoPs.
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.
SynEdge is a Luxembourg-based CDN provider with sales offices in the United Kingdom and the Netherlands. The company is a subsidiary of the POST Luxembourg group, a large, semi government-owned mail and telecommunications corporation in Luxembourg. Other related subsidiaries include European Business Reliance Centre (EBRC), Visual Online, Eltrona, Victor Buck Services and InTech.
Based on the network map of SynEdge, we assume they lease (part of) the network of Highwinds, possibly with a few added points-of-presence (PoPs) of their own.
Next to regular static content delivery, SynEdge offers private CDN, dynamic content delivery, frontend optimisation and storage.
