New Latin America Region

We’re excited to announce we’re adding a new check region and probe servers in Latin America to the NodePing server monitoring service.
The new region will be brought online and available for selection starting April 2, 2014. With this new addition, NodePing now has four distinct check regions, North America (NAM), Europe (EUR), East Asia/Oceania (EAO), and Latin America (LAM).

The new probe servers are located in:NodePing probe map

  • Panama [PA]
  • Curico, Chile [CL]
  • Federal, Argentina [AR]
  • São Paulo, Brazil [BR]
  • Miami, Florida, USA [FL]

Some may be asking “Why is Miami included in the Latin America Region?”. Geography was never our strong subject, but we do understand Miami is in North America. Significant traffic within different parts of Latin America goes through Miami, especially between Central America and South America, so we wanted to ensure that was covered for our Latin American customers.

You can specify our new Latin America region as the default region on your account or select it as a location on individual checks to get results from these new probe servers.

IP addresses for the probe servers can be found in the FAQ. Any questions can be directed to support(at)nodeping.com

[UPDATE – 2014-04-02 08:20GMT-7] – All new Latin America probes are online.
