Gcore’s mission is to help you go global faster and make the internet more reliable and secure. That’s why we’re excited to announce our new Cloud Point-of-Presence (PoP) in Mumbai, India.
This location is now part of our powerful cloud infrastructure with over 20 PoPs and more than 6,500 peering partners, providing our customers with an average latency of 26 ms worldwide. You can deploy and scale projects in just a few clicks, connect virtual instances, cloud storage, load balancers, and a wide range of cloud services to grow quickly with minimal infrastructure investment.
Gcore Cloud Edge. Global. Powerful. Secure.
The new Point-of-Presence provides customers in India with access to a variety of cloud services and products, including the following:
- Virtual Instances. The Point-of-Presence in Mumbai offers users a choice of production-grade instances designed for a wide range of workloads and predictable performance. Use it to deploy projects faster with ready virtual machine images. Take snapshots to quickly roll virtual machines back to their original state when needed. Easily ensure the availability of your applications during traffic spikes by managing infrastructure load through APIs or using Terraform.
- Bare Metal servers. In addition to virtual instances, customers are provided with high-performance, single-tenant physical servers to meet business needs. Get unlimited compute resources and deploy applications and services on high-performance, isolated servers.
- Cloud Storage. Object Storage is fast and scalable cloud storage that allows customers to store any amount of data and retrieve it anytime. You can use it to store static data needed to build and run websites and apps, for backups and archiving, for media file distribution, or data analytics.
- Managed Kubernetes. Fully managed Kubernetes solution with no additional cost, rapid deployment, and 99.9% uptime SLA. The service continuously monitors the health of your nodes and automatically updates and restarts them as needed. In addition, clusters can automatically increase or decrease the number of nodes in your pool (a group of instances with the same configuration running in the same cluster). Customers pay only for worker nodes (virtual machines and volumes) and network resources (load balancers and floating IPs).
