Description

What is Amazon CloudFront?

Amazon CloudFront can be used to deliver your entire website, including dynamic, static, streaming, and interactive content using a global network of edge locations. Requests for your content are automatically routed to the nearest edge location, so content is delivered with the best possible performance.

What is EdgeCast?

EdgeCast is a content delivery network (CDN) that helps companies accelerate and deliver static and dynamic content to end users around the world. Major customers include Yahoo!, Tumblr, Pinterest, Wordpress, and Imgur. The company has about 4,500 customers (as of June 2012) and carries about 5% of the world’s internet traffic.

What is CacheFly?

CacheFly is the world’s fastest Content Delivery Network (CDN), delivering rich-media content up to 10x faster than traditional delivery methods. Launched in 2002 as the first TCP anycast-based CDN, CacheFly pioneered the ability to deliver rich-media content faster and more reliably than traditional delivery methods.
