Today Vultr is launching in Melbourne, Australia.

This marks our second location on the continent and our 23rd global data center location. Hard to believe it’s been nearly eight years since we launched in Sydney.

Since that time, Vultr has emerged as the go-to independent cloud platform for developers looking to minimize latency for the more than 25 million residents of the Land Down Under.

And while many Vultr customers have been delighted by our investment in Australia, we’ve heard from some that they’d like us to have an even more significant presence on the continent.

Here’s what Leigh Spiegel, CTO of racehorse auction house Magic Millions, has to say about Vultr and our Melbourne launch:

Magic Millions sells thoroughbred race horses largely via online auctions, and we rely on Vultr to power our video and web servers. We've found Vultr's performance to be excellent, and we've also appreciated that the platform has allowed us to keep costs fairly low for some very network-intensive use cases. We're thrilled that, with its Melbourne launch, Vultr is further enhancing its presence in our home country of Australia.

With today’s launch in Melbourne, Vultr customers can now provision Cloud Compute instances.

We encourage managed service providers and resellers within Australia to join the Vultr Partner Program.

Developers can sign up to try Vultr here and deploy an instance in under 60 seconds. Businesses interested in discussing larger cloud migrations can contact Vultr sales for a free consultation.
