NetDNA Selects FastSoft to Speed CDN Services
August 8, 2011 | Taylor Jasko
PASADENA, CA – August 8, 2011 – FastSoft, Inc. today announced that NetDNA, a leading Los Angeles-based content delivery network (CDN) and web advertising delivery provider, has selected the company’s E-Series origin content acceleration (OCA) appliance to improve content delivery speed across its entire product line.
NetDNA delivers affordable CDN solutions such as small file acceleration, advertising delivery and full high-definition media streaming to thousands of customers worldwide.
The company installed the FastSoft E-Series appliance to increase the reach of its edge locations in order to maximize its performance through an efficient infrastructure footprint. Through this integration, NetDNA is able to accelerate content delivery between its datacenters and between its datacenters and end-users.
“NetDNA is in the speed business and after installing the E-Series, we saw a noticeable and measurable improvement in the speed of file delivery,” said Chris Ueland, President and CTO of NetDNA. “This has resulted in substantial performance improvements for our customers and FastSoft is now a core building block of our network.”
FastSoft’s E-Series is based on the company’s origin content acceleration (OCA) technology, which accelerates the delivery of dynamic and non-cacheable data that is delivered from origin servers. When these servers are located far from the end user, a significant transport latency delay can often greatly slow content download speed. OCA augments CDNs and front-end optimization (FEO) technology to provide complete web performance optimization.
“CDNs are facing a need to evolve with a market that is becoming increasingly personalized with more and more content being dynamically generated,” said Ed Snyder, FastSoft CEO. “The addition of the E-Series to the NetDNA network allows the company to accelerate end-to-end content delivery for a satisfying end-user experience, regardless of whether it’s a popular or longtail video, or a static or dynamic file.”
FastSoft spun out of the California Institute of Technology to supercharge the Internet for business. FastSoft’s Origin Content Acceleration (OCA) software speeds content delivery by up to 150%. FastSoft’s unique server-side solutions improve a user’s content access experience without the need for software or modifications on the receiving end. FastSoft’s web acceleration solutions are used by some of the largest companies on the Web.
The company is privately held and is located in Pasadena, CA. More information is at www.fastsoft.com.
