On-demand bare-metal cloud provider Maxihost now Latitude.sh has unveiled its first two new data centers in the United Kingdom. The company also confirmed plans for further expansion in the Latin American market.
The new sites are located in Telehouse North, home to the London Internet Exchange (LINX), and iomart’s LDeX1, one of London’s newest colocation facilities, respectively.
“Our secure London facility is a fantastic location for Maxihost to establish its UK operations and we’re really pleased to welcome them to our data center,” commented iomart COO Neil Christie.
“We look forward to working closely with the Maxihost team and supporting them to attract international companies to our London facility, as well as deliver excellent computing power for businesses already based here.”
From a technical standpoint, both the iomart and Telehouse North facilities support high-capacity and redundant 100G connectivity, enabling Maxihost customers to link directly to LINX and to have low-latency access to carriers or providers of their choosing.
In terms of applications, Maxihost said the data center will support use cases requiring speed, low latency, and high bandwidth, including gaming, streaming, VPNs, and Web3 node providers or blockchain networks.
According to the company, a number of its pre-existing customers will be immediately able to take advantage of the new data centers.
Among them are Gameyye, a multiplayer game session hosting provider, and Anydesk, a company offering remote desktop solutions.
“Our clients are looking to provide their target audiences with seamless online experiences. We are excited to be able to address that requirement in a dynamic new region, providing a gateway to the UK and the rest of Europe,” said Maxihost CEO Guilherme Soubihe Alberto.
Beyond the new London facilities, Maxihost confirmed it is about to open locations in Buenos Aires and Bogotá, to expand on its existing footprint in Latin America, the United States, and the Asia-Pacific region.
The company has also recently partnered with software platform and decentralized infrastructure provider Ankr.
The collaboration will see Maxihost’s global bare metal cloud platform monetizing existing unused server capacity through Ankr Protocol.
The new London data centers will reportedly become one of 13 global locations supporting the distributed node network that was born from the Ankr partnership and that will benefit the growth of Web3 applications.
