Tempe, Ariz.-based Limelight Networks has introduced Limelight Deploy, a managed content-delivery network platform offering, designed to enable network operators, access networks, content aggregators and enterprises to gain control over the rapidly increasing content on their networks. It also helps them quickly deploy revenue-generating CDN services integrated with a rich set of cloud-based services such as website and application acceleration, storage, Web and video management.
Limelight has just announced Bell Canada as a new customer.
"The Content Delivery Network solution that we developed in partnership with Limelight Networks has helped us address our business customers' growing need to deliver a broad range of rich, high-quality content to their online audiences, including streaming video, audio, and images," said Jeremy Wubs, VP, product management, Bell Business Markets. "As Limelight's exclusive Canadian partner, our CDN solutions are also helping businesses offer the best possible user experience with increased website reliability and performance."
Limelight says Limelight Deploy bridges the gap between other CDN solutions on the market today. Out-of-the-box solutions provide a CDN without bringing any network expertise, while licensed CDN offerings elongate the time to revenue as they place the full burden of deploying and managing the CDN on the customer from day one. In contrast, a managed solution by Limelight Deploy offers a range of service levels and a professional services team with a decade of experience, to help the provider reduce costs managing content on their network and generate revenue quickly by focusing on selling and participating in a proven migration path to operator control, the company said.
Limelight Deploy offers access to Limelight cloud-based services that deliver access to new revenue streams and the workflow to solve today's complex content publishing challenges, including mobile publishing, cloud storage and video management. Limelight says its cloud-based services help providers drive their CDN service offerings and expand margins.
