Introducing Linodes in Frankfurt!

Achtung baby! Linodes in Deutschland!

grmcloud-300x300We’re excited to announce our newest European datacenter located in Frankfurt am Main, Germany! This new facility will better serve the growing tech communities in Germany, greater Europe, and surrounding areas.

This marks our eighth datacenter worldwide, and complements our other Europe-based datacenter in London. Both our Frankfurt and London deployments are located in TelecityGroup facilities.

Frankfurt is an important financial and Internet hub for Europe, with a third of Europe’s Internet traffic going through it. Frankfurt is home to DE-CIX, the largest Internet exchange in the world in terms of traffic. DE-CIX will no doubt provide abundant peering access opportunities for us, over time.

Linode customers can now be compliant with Germany’s Federal Data Protection Act (a.k.a., Bundesdatenschutzgesetz or BDSG) by hosting their data on German soil.

Frankfurt supports all Linode features and services, and same great hardware including datacenter-grade SSD storage, E5-2680v3 CPUs, DDR4 ECC SDRAM, full-stack redundant networking and 40 GbE to each hypervisor host. Linode Frankfurt is KVM only.

Now is the time when we dance.

Check out our speedtest, or go straight into the Linode Manager to add a Frankfurt Linode!

Enjoy!

    @Antxon: Tough to tell, I believe either could work well. Give our speedtest a try to see which performs better for you: http://linode.com/speedtest

    How about the second Tokyo datacenter?

    • tasaro

      @Tinpont: We are still researching an additional facility in Tokyo.

  7. TheJosh

    @tasaro When opening an additional Tokyo facility, will it be linked to the old facility in such a way that private networking, ip swaps, etc can be made between Tokyo1 and Tokyo2 DCs? Or will they be separate in the same way as the other DCs are?

  8. Katumon

    Do you have also Linode people locally in Germany where I can talk to personally?

  9. kiran

    For UAE(Dubai ) customer is Frankfurt recommend, because uae internet exchange

  10. Atrius

    Will you ever consider establishing closer in or closer to scandinavia?

    Im in Norway, and surprisingly i get the same avg. ping to both Frankfurt and London.

  11. Jason Sandfield

    Congrats!

    Hope Linode to open a Hong Kong data centre (beats DO).

  12. Nateowami

    Would Tokyo provide better connectivity to China than Singapore?

    Just to say that the speedtest is perfect. So much easier to deal with companies that are straightforward. Keep it up! I’m a fan!

  16. Emmanuel Uplike

    Glückwünsche!

  17. Esolitos

    @atrius: That would be nice, TelecityGroup has a datacenter also in Stockholm, maybe in the future.
    I think however that the market share for scandinavia is still quite low compared to Frankfurt and London, which are quite important nodes in the traffic worldwide.

  18. Christopher Humphries

    Great news!

  19. Emil Vikström

    Do you remember when you got your second server in 2003? https://linode.com/2003/06/28/new-linode-64-host-server/

  20. Yves

  22. Haydrion Rayel

    I love Linode forever, but why ow why not in Amsterdam .. and I am NOT going to another VPS provider. I am waiting .. I have patience …I run already 2 Linodes, 1 in Dallas and 1 in London, but I really need Amsterdam, a dutch website does not belong in Frankfurt.
