20 years ago, ChinaCache was founded with a mission to provide high-speed and smooth internet experience for everyone, no matter where they live. As the first company to bring the concept of CDN into China, ChinaCache started small but now has achieved global reach in more than 120 cities across the world, serving more than 30,000 customers in various industries. While we constantly explore the capabilities and push the boundaries of CDN, from supporting Internet of Things to safeguarding IPv6 migration, we have grown beyond just a CDN company.


In 2013, ChinaCache embarked on constructing Atecsys, the largest carrier-neutral, Tier-III Design certified data center with a low carbon footprint. Located on the data center campus is CHN-IX, the first Internet Exchange Center in Mainland China. With its unique 3-tier network architecture built around CDN, data centers and Internet Exchange, ChinaCache is changing the Internet landscape in China.
