BGP Anycast


Leverage our global BGP Anycast network to go beyond simple CDN and move your stack to the edge. We provide solutions that are geared toward both existing service providers that have network infrastructure, and customers that have do not have network infrastructure. Deploy your service into the cloud and utilize BGP Anycast to create a highly available service that is delivered with low-latency to end users.

What is Anycast?

In the simplest terms, BGP Anycast allows you to have network level failover of IP Address space. This is accomplished by announcing the same prefix into the global routing table from multiple geographic locations.

If one location goes offline, the global routing table adjusts automatically and routes traffic to the next nearest location announcing the prefix. In addition to automatic failover, Anycast provides "best path" access to content. This means that users automatically connect to the Anycast location closest to them based on the network.

BGP Anycast requires real time replication and it is critical that data is synced across the network for end users to access up to date content. BGP Anycast requires an architecture and service design that is specifically built for Anycast.
