​Zenlayer Adds Cloud Networking Features

Edge cloud service provider Zenlayer releases a new set of features for its cloud networking product including traffic engineering in the backbone, BGP, enhanced API functions and data insights for customers.

Zenlayer claims its new capability to engineer network traffic combined with its global private backbone decreases network latency by 28% on average, reduces packet loss and improves network resilience.

“Latency and network instability kill the digital experience, which has direct impact to client’s top line,” said David Xie, Chief Product Officer. “Our new Cloud Networking products allow customers to turbocharge connectivity, instantly.”

Additional new features released include BGP and broad-scale data insights. With BGP in place, Zenlayer users can flexibly peer their networks and build virtual private clouds on demand. They can also further customize connectivity between private network and public clouds. Additionally, users can now access their telemetry data to have end-to-end visibility of their network status, connectivity quality, latency and resource utilization.
