Content Distribution Networks (CDN) allow high-traffic applications with large media files to deliver content without a degradation in performance. This allows for the support of increased concurrent users and a reduction in premium bandwidth expenses. CDN services can be used on a one-time basis or can be used consistently for global content delivery.
Typical large-file delivery applications include video and audio delivery or software downloads. Edgecast's large-file platform is based on fast disk accesses, a massive throughput capability, and a patent-pending, global load balancing solution which seamlessly delivers large media to users throughout the world from 16 Points of Presence (POPs).
