What tools integrate with EdgeCast?
I have been using edge cast for approximately 5 years. Their support is nothing short of fantastic.
Their pricing is beyond fair and when you consider them some of the competitors if you are big enough you can negotiate if you are a smaller company Google resellers you will find deals everywhere.
They are the fastest CDN available I have used all the big names and it has all come down to EdgeCast they can do everything I want including allowing me to fix coding issues on clients websites automatically with their ADN application delivery network. By applying Google page speed through the ADN which is a CDN that has Google page speed, accelerates both dynamic and static content along with incredible analytics uptime management and their new DNS with geo-IP makes them a fantastic company to work with.
To everyone that EdgeCast thank you so much for all your help.
