Amsterdam, Netherlands, 18 December 2014 - Webzilla, a global enterprise hosting provider, joined the Internet exchange (IX) in Singapore, SGIX. The move allows for a significant reduction in latency and increased service quality in the region.
Asia has shown incredibly fast-paced economic growth and with it an increasing demand for quality enterprise IT services. Due to the nature of international business, the need for collaboration and partnership on a global scale, companies and individuals seek to gain a foothold on the continent. The tempo leaves holes in terms of servicing, leading to shortage of quality in the IT sector.
Webzilla has already shown its progressive planning by becoming a member of the biggest IXs in Europe - the German (DE-CIX) and the Dutch (AMS-IX). The most recent inclusions in Poland (PLIX) and the Czech Republic (NIX.CZ) have solidified the company's position as one of the major hosting providers. SGIX will bring the total number of IXs, Webzilla is a member of, to 15.
Joining the SGIX does not only increase exposure in Asia but also in the broader Asia Pacific region. Lower latency and improved quality are detrimental to the current business environment, especially in still developing areas. With presence on 3 continents, the improvement in regional traffic exchange will boost Webzilla's ability to cater to the growing number of clients interested in the Asia Pacific.
"As an enterprise hosting provider, we cannot allow ourselves to be still. We have to know what the companies need before they do. The boom in Asia has caught the eye of many investors and enterprises seek to establish profitable partnerships. Moreover, we have seen local improvement in quality of services and with it skyrocketing demand for online exposure. It is our natural course to serve as a link between regions and expand our network," said Konstantin Bezruchenko, CTO of Webzilla. "The IX in Singapore plays a very important role in exchange of traffic and provides valuable assistance to its members. Our decision to add it to our existing portfolio of IXs is without a doubt beneficial to everyone relying on our network and services."
Joining the Singapore Internet Exchange will enhance Webzilla's network and allow more efficient exchange of traffic. With the company's plans to develop an online marketplace with the domain servers.com, lower latency and stronger connection to and from developing regions is nothing else but positive.
