EdgeCast Networks Helps Atlantic Media Serve Blazing-Fast Content to Millions of Online Readers

SANTA MONICA, CAOctober 24, 2013 EdgeCast Networks today announced that Atlantic Media is leveraging the company’s global acceleration network to serve its content to millions of users around the world.

As one of the oldest and most respected brands in journalism, The Atlantic is trusted by millions to deliver bold thinking on the world’s most intriguing topics. Keeping the brand fresh and relevant – and keeping readers coming back – requires delivering world-class digital experiences. Ensuring an excellent reader experience means availability, reliability, and speed – regardless of the end user’s device or location.

In the media business, accuracy and freshness is critical. That’s why the power to quickly replace or update (“purge”) content on edge servers around the world is extremely important for reputable media brands such as The Atlantic. While other networks serve stale or outdated content for extended periods of time, EdgeCast completes most purges in just seconds with its new “Piranha Purge” feature.

“Whether it’s quickly updating a breaking story or correcting inaccuracies, fast updates go a long way in preserving credibility and trust,” said Tom Cochran, CTO of Atlantic Media. “Piranha Purge is a tool that’s extremely valuable in a breaking news world.”

The company – which publishes The Atlantic, National Journal, Government Executive, and more, also recently launched its newest digital property, Defense One. Cochran discusses launching and maintaining the company’s digital presences in this video.

“Site performance is one of the most critical parts of the reader experience. Simply put, it has to be fast,” said Cochran. “With EdgeCast, we know our sites are loading at top speed, no matter where our readers are in the world.”

“After almost two centuries in the media business, Atlantic Media continues to innovate and has become a leader in the digital news space,” said Anthony Citrano, vice president of communications and marketing at EdgeCast Networks. “We’re very pleased to be keeping their network of sites secure, available, and running at top speed.”
