CDN Data Centers Opened in UK and Australia by LeaseWeb

CDN Data Centers Opened in UK and Australia by LeaseWebCDN data centers play an integral role in the way that content delivery networks operate and allow data to be delivered to end users at blistering speed.

Many content delivery network providers access CDN data centers via IaaS (infrastructure as a service) providers in order to quickly gain access to data centers in new and diverse markets without having to construct them themselves. One such IaaS provider is LeaseWeb, who owns CDN data centers around the globe.

LeaseWeb have recently announced that they are adding new CDN data centers to their already long list of global data centers. They will be located in London, UK and Sydney, Australia – two of the world’s most important traffic hotspots. Both data centers have been developed in conjunction with TOPdesk and Acronis – two of LeaseWeb’s most important partners.
