CDNsun provides global video streaming and content delivery services, with a focus on software and game delivery, live video and video on demand, as well as website acceleration services. Using OnApp, CDNsun now offers content delivery at 70 locations across North and South America, Europe, Asia and Australia, by combining its own datacenters with hand-picked CDN Points of Presence from the 170+ locations available in the OnApp Federation – a global network of wholesale CDN and compute capacity.
The flexibility and cost efficiency of OnApp’s federated CDN model, together with OnApp CDN’s support for video content, now helps CDNsun deliver live video streams and video on demand at significantly lower prices than competing CDNs.
“The OnApp Federation is a big part of our success at CDNsun, and has contributed significantly to our growth,” says David Pospisil, CEO and founder of CDNsun. “The scale and flexibility the OnApp Federation brings to our business is pretty amazing. It’s a pool of capacity you can use to jumpstart your service without building your own infrastructure. And, it’s a way to rapidly extend your own datacenter footprint, and market-test new locations before making the decision to build capacity in new regions. OnApp’s streaming capabilities are a big differentiator too, especially at the price point the federated model enables us to offer.”
The OnApp CDN platform provides CDNsun with a complete CDN software stack, which it uses to create high performance edge servers and storage servers in its own datacenters. CDNsun can then extend its network with OnApp Federation infrastructure in 113 cities, across 43 countries, without having to build any of its own infrastructure. All CDNsun locations use solid state storage and premium bandwidth to deliver low latency and high throughput for customer websites, applications, files and streams.
“As the OnApp Federation continues to grow, it’s fantastic to see how many different ways it’s being used by different service providers,” said Ditlev Bredahl, CEO of OnApp. “CDNsun is a specialist CDN company, making full use of high-performance streaming PoPs to out-reach and out-price traditional CDNs. And they’re using the OnApp Federation to extend its network coverage, and test out new markets. It’s awesome to be part of their success story. It’s also great news for all of the OnApp customers who supply the infrastructure they use: as cloud and CDN traffic grows on the OnApp Federation, it grows the revenue they make selling capacity. It’s a win-win for everyone.”
