Anycast for Performance & High Availability
At the network level, BGP anycast can offer unparalleled low latency performance. With our anycast technology, you can distribute your content, data, and applications to as many PoPs (points of presence) as you want, and direct incoming traffic to the nearest one, utilizing the same IP for all instances. Anycast can be configured to work with virtually any online application.
With unicast routing, end users further from your server will experience slower performance.
Using anycast, end user experience is improved when they connect to server instances closer to them.
With a unicast infrastructure, if your server goes down for any reason, end users must wait until that location comes back online.
With anycast, if one location goes offline, end users will be automatically rerouted to the next closest server instance, without needing to use different IP address.
