New Linode Datacenter: Tokyo 2

New Linode Datacenter: Tokyo 2

edited November 2016 in Providers

We are proud to announce the opening of our ninth datacenter: Tokyo 2. There has been high demand for additional Linode capacity in this region and we’re excited to open up availability.

Tokyo 2 offers all of the features and services as our other datacenters, at standard Linode pricing. Connectivity into Tokyo 2 features a fine blend of peering and transit providers (with more to come) to ensure the highest possible bandwidth and lowest latencies. Customers with Linodes in other datacenters (including Tokyo 1) wishing to move Linodes into Tokyo 2 can clone them to the new facility. The cloning method is recommended since you’ll be able to stage your services on their new IP addresses before changing your DNS records. Alternatively, you can open a support ticket and we can configure a migration for you.

For new Linodes, simply choose “Tokyo 2” as the location when creating a Linode.

    What the hell?

    It's possible that they stagger their announcements so that they don't overload the new location on day 1.

  • People complain when they get email when they dont get email if they get it too soon if they get it too late. Perhaps they segmented their customers from most probable to least probable of using Japan or incorporated other things into the equation- annual spend, number of sites etc. Or maybe just old fashioned a/b testing

    My understanding is that they do segment their customers depending on amount of Linodes in their account or something very similar. I know someone who got the notification on the 10th of November.
