CACHEFLY Description

CacheFly is a Chicago-based CDN provider, with over 40 Points of Presence (PoPs) spread over six continents. Next to the usual locations, Cachefly has PoPs in India, Qatar, Egypt and South Africa.

The Cachefly network is optimised for throughput, making it more suitable for the delivery of large files.

Instead of DNS-based global loadbalancing, the company’s CDN infrastructure relies on TCP Anycast routing.

CacheFly offers the usual features in the CDN industry such as instant purge, origin shielding, real-time reporting and sub-accounts. They also offer a 100% availability SLA and 247 support.
