Video Streaming

Our own proprietary global load-balancing technology connects each location to your end users around the world. At the same time,our bandwidth buying power works to your benefit,giving you access to our volume discounts. We offer you cutting-edge storage and edge caching infrastructure across which your applications and content have guaranteed performance and delivery. And best of all,it gives you instant scale with no capital costs. You’ll not need to make a build or buy decision;just choose your starting point and move up or down our service spectrum as your stage of growth requires.

Global Footprint

Through extensive research and development,our team has pinpointed strategic global locations from which to store and serve our clients' content. we maintains content caching points of presence (POPs) in San Jose,Los Angeles (2 locations),Ashburn VA,Chicago,Dallas,Atlanta,Seattle,London (2 locations),Amsterdam,Frankfurt,Hong Kong,Tokyo,and Sydney. All POPs are located in tier one data centers strategically located near primary Internet Exchange Points. This places servers at the center of global network peering and traffic exchange,and puts your end users just milliseconds away from your content.

EdgeDirector Global Load-Balancing Platform

Our EdgeDirector is a patent-pending routing protocol and global load balancing technology for serving content requests from the location closest to the end user. Traditional content delivery platforms use DNS routing methods that require multiple levels of DNS triangulation before the content can be served. Edge Director combines the robustness and instant response of one of the fastest DNS infrastructures in the world with proprietary routing protocols to ensure that client content is immediately delivered to the user directly from the POP fastest for them,regardless of the user's global location.

Advanced Reporting and Analytics

Reports is calculated every hour,ensuring our customers have access to timely performance data. Our tools provide complete reporting flexibility,with access to new reports how and when you need them. Reporting and analytics should enable you to lower costs,analyze trends,predict usage patterns,and help you improve the performance of your content delivery.

Real-Time Reporting Dashboard

This subset of our advanced reports brings true,up-to-the-second,live reporting to your desktop. Monitor your HTTP and Flash bandwidth utilization in real-time,watch connections being setup and taken down as they happen,monitor your storage usage and keep an eye on your purge and queues all from this easy-to-use dashboard.

Bandwidth Throttling

It’s not enough to just provide an excellent content delivery service;we must also be dedicated to developing new technology that improves your bottom line. Another example of our leadership in this regard is our bandwidth throttling technology. In this age of short attention spans,quick site exits,and channel surfing,you don’t want to pay for the full download of a five minute video if the user only watches the first five seconds. Our technology is able to ensure a quality end user experience while mitigating the cost of abandoned downloads and streams.

Progressive Download:Balancing Quality With Flexibility

Whether it’s improving performance or lowering costs,our dedication to improving your content delivery model is clear:our progressive download technology allows users random access to videos they are downloading (fast forwarding and rewinding throughout the file) before the files are fully downloaded without the licensing costs and technological burden associated with streaming.

Content Security

Token based authentication makes it simple and seamless to provide a high level of security that is layered on top of your mission-critical content. We provide the necessary security tools to enable you to restrict access to content by any combination of geo-location for country blocking,by URL time to live.

Storage

We offer CDN customers high capacity,high-availability storage for all of their content. Our storage infrastructure is a high-performance storage platform,accessible via FTP,RSYNC,and Web Interface,and is designed to be redundant and scalable. Additionally,we can deploy custom storage solutions at all of our POPs throughout the globe,so that customers can select the ideal geographic location for their storage,and make it available to all the regional servers caching and streaming servers.

Flexible Origin Server Options

We provide clients with the flexibility to physically store content or store content locally on their own hardware. If clients choose to store their content with us,they can easily upload their content directly to our storage POPs,where the content is picked up and brought to the edge by the caching servers. Optionally,clients can maintain their content on their own origin server,and the servers caching servers will access that client storage location,cache the content,and serve it directly to end users from the POPs around the globe.

Focus on Digital Media

We specialize in content delivery services for digital media. Many legacy content delivery networks are not designed to support the delivery of extremely large streaming and downloadable media files;rather,they were tailored to support much smaller static files such as images,HTML,and banner ads. While the server’s network excels in handling these smaller files,we have specifically optimized our network for streaming Adobe Flash and Windows Media and for large file delivery via progressive download. Our network is highly scalable to support massive and unexpected digital media audiences and flash crowds.
