MEGGEN, SWITZERLAND -- (Marketwired) -- 08/25/14 -- Golden Frog, a company that fights for online privacy and an open Internet, announced today that it has added a new VyprVPN server location in Chicago. This comes a few weeks after the company announced a New York server location, and marks Golden Frog's sixth location in the United States.
The new Chicago location provides VyprVPN customers with an additional connection point within the USA so they can keep their online communications private, while enjoying a fast and reliable VPN experience. As with all Golden Frog server locations, the company owns the server hardware and manages its own network to deliver fast VPN speeds and better protect user data and privacy.
"Although it is logical to assume adding encryption to an Internet connection would slow it down, many VyprVPN customers have reported they are getting increased speed when they are connected to VyprVPN, especially when they stream online content," said Sunday Yokubaitis, President, Golden Frog. "At Golden Frog, we run our own network so we can provide uncongested network routes for our users. Our Chicago server location further expands our network to give our customers more options to ensure VyprVPN is fast and reliable."
VyprVPN customers now have access to more than 700 servers in 45 locations across North America, South America, Europe, Asia and Oceania. They get unlimited bandwidth and connection speeds and are able to switch between servers worldwide without restrictions. Each location is compatible with all VPN protocols: PPTP, L2TP/IPsec, OpenVPN, as well as Golden Frog's proprietary VPN technology, Chameleon.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

DevOps has often been described in terms of CAMS: Culture, Automation, Measuring, Sharing. While we’ve seen a lot of focus on the “A” and even on the “M”, there are very few examples of why the “C" is equally important in the DevOps equation. In her session at @DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, of F5 Networks, will explore HTTP/1 and HTTP/2 along with Microservices to illustrate why a collaborative culture between Dev, Ops, and the Network is critical to ensuring success.
