Standardization Allows NetDNA to Even Faster Complete Custom Solutions and New Feature Development
LOS ANGELES, Calif. (July 17, 2012) NetDNA, a fast-growing content delivery network (CDN) platform, today announced it has standardized its NetDNA and MaxCDN services on the NGINX web server.
The high-performance NGINX software allows NetDNA to serve content even faster, operate more efficiently and deliver 50 percent faster development cycles on innovative new services, like the recently announced EdgeSSL security service and its Enhanced Reporting Suite.
Rapid innovation is a key part of NetDNA’s strategy to continually add features to its CDN platform. This helps its full range of customers, which include mobile development platforms like player.io, hosting platforms like WPengine.com, ad serving platforms like buysellads.com and high traffic websites like TheNextWeb.com.
Through its Developer Center and support for the easy-to-use REST service API, the company has made its service one of the easiest and most complete for developers to work with.
“The move to NGINX has been a good strategic decision for our CDN customers, because we have been able to maximize our production and cost efficiency. Now, our customers can expect even quicker deployments of new and great features from our service,” said Chris Ueland, president of NetDNA.
NGINX is an open-source edge web server from Nginx Inc.,that excels at large-scale content delivery and web acceleration tasks. NGINX powers more than 25 percent of the busiest ten thousand websites in the world, and more than 70 million domains worldwide. These include high-load sites like WordPress.com, Hulu and Github.
NGINX is an essential building block of NetDNA’s architecture which allows NetDNA to maintain the high-performance and reliability of its CDN services. The low CPU and memory footprint of NGINX allows the company to reduce energy and hardware operation costs.
By standardizing on NGINX, NetDNA gets a full-featured caching solution, which means its engineers can focus on further building out its network and the unique features that make its control panel powerful and easy to use.
“It has been a real pleasure helping the NetDNA team make the transition, and we are looking forward to help NetDNA to further maximize web performance for its customers,” said Andrew Alexeev, co-founder of Nginx, Inc.
