Network Anycast Service

Anycast Service

Anycast allows some internet applications to be reachable with much increased redundancy and capacity.

88.io has a dedicated autonomous system number AS 133175 for our anycast service, which is being served from 5 sites in 4 cities worldwide:

London - 1 site
Los Angeles - 1 site
Sydney - 2 sites
Tokyo - 1 site

Users of our global Anycast IP addresses (e.g. virtualvaccine.me) will be routed to the closest one of the above sites. Should the servers in any one of those sites go down, users will be automatically routed to the remaining sites.
