INetU Managed Hosting accelerates its customers’ web content with super-fast global delivery
LOS ANGELES, CA AND ALLENTOWN, PA – FEBRUARY 9, 2010 — EdgeCast Networks, the superior, cost–effective rich media content delivery network (CDN), and INetU, a managed hosting provider, today announced the availability of global content delivery services to all INetU customers.
This agreement opens EdgeCast’s worldwide content delivery network to INetU clients, enabling any INetU customers to instantly deploy web applications, site content, and media streams via any of EdgeCast’s sixteen points of presence around the world. This will mean dramatic increases in performance and the worldwide availability of customer sites.
“EdgeCast and INetU have something very important in common, and that is a culture of commitment to going above and beyond for every customer,” said James Segil, president of EdgeCast Networks. “This partnership is an example of that commitment in action – INetU’s customers sought a way to overcome the bottlenecks of long distance site performance, and INetU delivered. Now their customers have a true one-stop-shop for quickly delivering their content and applications to any computer around the world.”
INetU’s managed hosting customers previously served all content – media streams, web applications, and hosted files – from their servers in Allentown, PA. While the servers were connected to top tier Internet providers via fiber optics, latency for time sensitive applications to remote parts of the globe was challenging for some customers. With this new relationship, INetU clients can benefit from edge storage and caching, and ensure high-speed delivery of their content around the world by serving their content directly from any of EdgeCast’s points of origin in North America, Europe, Asia and Australia.
“We evaluated several content delivery networks, and EdgeCast brought the most to the table,” said Dev Chanchani, President of INetU. “From both an engineering and a customer perspective, we evaluated each network and team thoroughly before deciding – with much confidence – to offer EdgeCast’s network to our customers.”
The EdgeCast CDN services are available immediately to all INetU customers.
