Upgrades, services, knowledge – a busy schedule in July

In June, we celebrated our 25th birthday, and in July, we have been busy with technical upgrades, bringing the new DirectCLOUD Flex service live, and taking online new whitepapers. With the new DirectCLOUD Flex service, you can set up as many cloud connections as you want up to your ordered bandwidth, changing connections daily or even hourly.

Our new whitepapers include one about remote-triggered Blackholing, and we share what Dr. Christoph Dietzel has to say about the pressure on the Internet infrastructure due to Covid-19 measures. 

Finally, check out our events happening in August and later on in the autumn, including the popular round tables bringing together the peering community in Germany.

Enjoy the newsletter.
