BELUGACDN Description

BelugaCDN is a small CDN provider based in Miami, Florida in the US. The provider has 9 Super PoPs spread over the US and Europe. The provider focuses on the simplicty and ease-of-use of its CDN environment, and the main target audience is composed of developers. The CDN however, is still very suitable for all client types.

Seemingly, BelugaCDN resells its network to other service providers, one of these resellers is hosting provider Isprime. Customers of the Beluga CDN service offering include Homelife Media, LittleThings, Userpath.co, VidaPrimo, MacUpdate and Encoding Booth.

HOLACDN Description

HolaCDN is the video CDN from Hola, an Israel-based company known for their Hola VPN and peer-to-peer (P2P) technology, and P2P data mining service Luminati.io.

The solution lets customers combine their own CDN with the network of HolaCDN, to optimise video delivery. The delivery process takes place in two phases:

  1. HolaCDN’s algorithm uses a real-time bidding system to determine the fastest server to deliver the initial chunks of the video;
  2. The following chunks will be delivered from the most cost-effective servers, as there’s plenty of time for them to load in and they do not need to be served out by the fastest server per se.

Customers can integrate the CDN with a variety of existing, third-party video players or use the Open Source Hola Player.

HolaCDN does not publish their network map or the amount and locations of their of points of presence (PoPs). Their network does not need to be extensive due to the nature of video loading: only the initial chunk needs to be served out quickly, what follows is less relevant. So, as far as their network goes – we can only guess.
