Web Host NewsSan Francisco – OpenDNS, the world’s largest and fastest-growing provider of Internet navigation and security services that make networks safer, faster, smarter and more reliable, today announced that it added a datacenter in Singapore to better serve OpenDNS users across Asia and beyond. The Singapore server marks the 12th datacenter for OpenDNS globally and the first of a number planned for Asia.

OpenDNS added the Singapore datacenter as part of its continuous effort to improve the navigation service around the globe. The company’s sophisticated anycast routing technology means wherever users are in the world, their DNS requests are automatically routed to the OpenDNS servers physically closest to them. The Singapore servers will speed page load times for users closer to Singapore than other, pre-existing OpenDNS locations.

“We’ve seen unprecedented growth in Asia and the Pacific Rim over the past few years,” said OpenDNS Founder and CEO David Ulevitch. “Building out a datacenter in Singapore will ensure that families, schools and businesses in Asian countries can experience a faster and safer Internet thanks to OpenDNS, and will no longer need to rely on their ISPs unreliable DNS service.”

The datacenter joins two datacenters in Europe and nine in the United States. The company’s next server location is planned for Frankfurt, Germany. Additional sites in Asia, Australia, India and South America are planned for 2011 and 2012. Each additional site reduces latency for nearby users and increases the overall capacity of the OpenDNS infrastructure.
