What is Geo Proximity?
The Geo Proximity feature allows system administrators to specify the location, or the longitude & latitude of their hosted servers (datacenter locations). The powerful Constellix GeoIP engine will then automatically calculate which server is closest to the end querying client in real-time, providing clients with the most optimized resolution speeds to reach your content.
