Reston, VA, June 16, 2021 – Tiggee LLC, parent company of DNS Made Easy and Constellix has announced a new point of presence (PoP) in Toronto, Ontario. This PoP adds 10 Gbps of peering capacity and 100 Gbps of transit capacity to Tiggee’s already extensive network, increasing the total peers to 300 Gbps and transit capacity to more than 700+ Gbps.
This latest PoP is part of an ongoing Tiggee initiative to provide the fastest and most reliable DNS around the globe. Tiggee continually analyzes industry trends, improves its existing infrastructure, and develops new solutions based on cutting-edge technology and direct customer feedback.
“Our new Toronto point of presence is our first-ever PoP in Canada, and was the next logical step in our continuous mission to increase the redundancy and performance of our DNS Made Easy and Constellix services. With a large footprint in Ontario, our clients will experience extremely fast DNS lookups over the TorIX peering exchange, as well as our normal Tier 1 transit providers,” says Steven Job, President of DNS Made Easy and Constellix.
“The AS16552 network expansion into Toronto will be the 6th international PoP that we have launched in the last 16 months. All of our deployments are full-site installations with redundant routing, switching, and bare metal nameserver infrastructure. This is a large differentiating factor when comparing our solutions with other providers that rely on a virtual private server (VPS) or outsourced networks. This is how we have been able to maintain the fastest speeds and highest uptime since 2001.”
With this latest expansion, Tiggee is now a peer at the TorIX exchange point in Toronto, alongside service providers Akamai, Amazon, Google, Cloudflare, and Fastly. Nearly 3 million people live in the city of Toronto. The entire metropolitan area; however, has a population of more than 6.5 million with an annual growth rate of 0.93%. As Toronto is the financial capital of Canada (contributing an average of CDN$332 billion to the country’s economy), a presence in this region will make a significant improvement to domain performance for businesses that use DNS services under the Tiggee umbrella.
Other future PoPs in the pipeline are Paris, France and Stockholm, Sweden, as well as upgrades to Tiggee’s current points of presence in Seattle and Miami. DNS Made Easy and Constellix have an 11+-year history of 100% uptime and top speeds in the industry. These expansions are being implemented in anticipation of the ever-increasing reliance today’s consumers and businesses have on the internet, as well as the heightened security threats that accompany the rise in web traffic.
Tiggee and its subsidiaries, DNS Made Easy and Constellix, are always looking toward the future, evolving their services based on customers’ needs. User experience is pivotal in Tiggee’s expansion plans, as well as its decisions to improve and develop new DNS technologies and solutions.
