BETA IN TOKYO! Don't tell anyone, but we just launched our NRT1 datacenter. Free compute until next Friday, December 16th - just spin up!

BGP / Anycast

Our platform was purpose built to support advanced network features, including BGP support at each host and global anycast services. Happily, your Packet server nodes can talk BGP to our upstream routers (e.g. using Calico, ExaBGP, or Bird), bringing a highly scalable, rapid and flexible routing protocol to your automation toolkit.

BGP

Tap into BGP to power container workloads and other dynamic orchestration systems.  Advanced host level routing is becoming a requirement for modern  deployments.  Happily, your Packet server nodes can talk BGP to our upstream routers (e.g. using Calico, ExaBGP, or Bird), bringing a highly scalable, rapid and flexible routing protocol to your automation toolkit.   Not into BGP?  Packet supports API and portal-based control of Elastic IP addresses too.

Anycast

For multi-location deployments, we support anycast network announcements.  With multi-location deployments becoming the norm, a strong anycast strategy seems like table stakes for a modern infrastructure provider. With an Elastic Anycast Address from Packet, you can route the same address from multiple Packet locations for high availability and traffic management.
