SANTA MONICA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--EdgeCast Networks, the leading high-performance CDN (content delivery network), and Vodien, Singapore’s largest cloud hosting provider, today announced they have signed an agreement for Vodien to offer EdgeCast site acceleration services to Vodien customers. Vodien CDN customers will dramatically increase the speed at which they serve content to end users around the world.
As end user expectations increase on site performance, so does the pressure on companies to deliver content as quickly as possible – regardless of end user location or device. EdgeCast’s global network, with points of presence in dozens of major metros around the world, will enable Vodien’s customers to serve web content directly from servers that are closest to the end user. This will significantly reduce latency and improve the end user experience.
A recent survey conducted by Consumer Statistics show that almost 2.5 billion people around the world use the Internet for e-commerce, with almost half of those users located in Asia. As e-commerce continues to grow rapidly, attention spans are decreasing. These trends make a lightning-fast site more important than ever. Even relatively minor delays in a site’s loading time can have substantial impacts on abandonment rates and brand engagement. These trends demonstrate that investments in improving site performance can quickly generate significant returns.
Bill Poh, the founder of Vodien, says, “We are one of the most popular web hosting companies in Asia. We firmly believe in providing quality web hosting service, as we care about our clients. The direction of current industry trends has indicated this market gap, and that is why we have partnered with the leader in content delivery network services, EdgeCast, to introduce a solid CDN product for our customers. This is in line with how we always provide the fastest and greatest services to our clients, which has made us the most popular web hosting service providers in Asia.”
