MEDIA TEMPLE TEAMS WITH EDGECAST TO OFFER GLOBAL CONTENT DELIVERY SERVICE

ProCDN service delivers sites faster while easing server load and supercharging performance

LOS ANGELES, CA – March 22, 2011 — EdgeCast Networks, the world’s fastest, most reliable content delivery network (CDN), and Media Temple, a web hosting and virtualization provider, today announced the launch of Media Temple’s ProCDN. Available immediately to all Media Temple customers, ProCDN is a no-commitment, pay-as-you-go service that dramatically accelerates web site performance and availability.

ProCDN is the latest addition to Media Temple’s ProDev product line, a group of services designed to provide existing customers with the most advanced hosted services in the industry. This addition to the product line gives Media Temple customers the ability to pair best-in-class web hosting with the world’s fastest content delivery network. Media Temple brings the benefits of a content delivery network to Media Temple customers, giving them dramatic performance improvements without big volume or dollar commitments.

"In a global marketplace where every millisecond counts, a single fast web server is no longer enough,” said Demian Sellfors, CEO of Media Temple. “If you’re slow, users notice, search engines notice, and it can be incredibly costly. I’m excited to be able to offer global power, performance, and scale to all our customers with a service that’s both easy to use and easy to pay for."

Media Temple customers previously served all content – media streams, web applications, and static files – from two data centers in El Segundo, California and Ashburn, Virginia. While the servers were connected to top tier Internet providers, delivery to end users in other parts of the world remained challenging. ProCDN changes that by distributing customer content from twenty massively powerful data centers around the globe, and automatically serving end users from the location fastest for them, delivering a significantly improved experience for the end user.

“The best way to be faster is to be closer, and being closer means either building your own global network or using someone else’s. Only a few years ago, the benefits of CDN were reserved for organizations with millions of dollars and thousands of hours to invest,” said James Segil, president of EdgeCast. “Media Temple is leading the way in the premium hosting industry by opening up the world’s best network to their customers.”

ProCDN can be used in combination with any other Media Temple hosted services and is now available to all customers.
