LOS ANGELES, CA–(October 7, 2009) – Mzima Networks, the world’s premier high-performance Network Service Provider, and NetDNA, a leading Los Angeles-based content delivery network that accelerates content and websites through very fast and geographic strategically placed data centers throughout the world, today announce that NetDNA has selected Mzima’s low-latency, 10 Gigabit backbone with over 1 Tbps of transit capacity and global peering capabilities to deliver NetDNA’s high-performance, reliable content quickly and efficiently.
In examining each stage of its content delivery process, NetDNA identified key metrics to process and maximize speed and efficiency over its network, one of which included the need to install a system of computers, networked together across the Internet in order to transparently forward content closer to end users. After carefully evaluating major backbone providers, NetDNA found Mzima to be the logical partner for the task.
“Mzima is the best built and most optimized backbone network for the delivery of content to broadband users,” states Chris Ueland, President of NetDNA. “Mzima’s ten NetDNA locations connect to an array of global broadband users, reaching over 90 countries and over 500 global peering partners. Mzima meets and surpasses NetDNA’s core network requirements, specifically speed and availability.”
“Within ten of Mzima’s network locations, NetDNA has successfully deployed its global edge cloud solutions, leveraging the vast connectivity and proximity to Mzima’s network,” continues Grant Kirkwood, CTO of Mzima Networks. “With Mzima’s network, latency is 10-20 milliseconds from most of the United States and NetDNA’s customers’ content is rapidly delivered to end users, optimizing performance by loading files from the nearest geographic location. Mzima provides NetDNA with intelligent best-path routing with a route analysis system that monitors packet loss and latency. We also provide routing policies to ensure optimal performance across our backbone.”
