Cloudflare expands with four new data centres

Cloudflare has increased its network footprint in Australia and New Zealand, opening four data centres in the past 12 months in Adelaide, Canberra, Hobart and Christchurch. This brings its network to a total of nine cities across ANZ.

“The closer we bring our network to every person in Australia and New Zealand, the faster we can deliver local content to websites, applications and corporate networks. Opening four additional data centres across the region furthers our mission of providing faster, secure, private and reliable internet for all,” said Raymond Maisano, Head of ANZ at Cloudflare.

With greater internet usage comes greater risk and, while Australia and NZ represent only a small portion of the world’s population, the countries are targeted by a relatively larger number of cyber attacks. Over the 2020–21 financial year, cybercrime reports in Australia increased by nearly 13% — equating to one report of a cyber attack every 8 minutes — and a higher proportion were categorised by the ACSC as “substantial” in impact. In New Zealand, reports of criminal or financially motivated actors increased by a similar percentage.

Through these additional data centres and its extensive partner network, the company says it can better fulfil its role in helping build a faster, more reliable and more secure internet. Cloudflare’s global network spans over 270 cities in more than 100 countries.
