Google Cloud CDN vs MetaCDN: What are the differences?

Google Cloud CDN leverages Google's globally distributed edge caches to accelerate content delivery for websites and applications served out of Google Compute Engine. Cloud CDN lowers network latency, offloads origins, and reduces serving costs. Once you've set up HTTP(S) Load Balancing, simply enable Cloud CDN with a single checkbox.
What is MetaCDN? Multi-CDN that combines existing CDN networks and directs individual users to the fastest CDN provider in their region. MetaCDN harnesses and combines existing CDN networks. We offer a truly global CDN network and our patent pending technology dynamically selects the CDN provider which will be fastest for individual users.
