CDN77 Description

In 2011, CDN provider CDN77 was founded with the aim of building a CDN that was ‘transparent, fast and flexible’ and to make it suitable for developers. It was originally built on top of OnApp but since the end of 2014, they operate their own infrastructure.

The provider is headquartered in the United Kingdom in London, and have another office in Prague, Czech Republic.

On-boarding with CDN77 is quick and easy and can be done autonomously via the website. They offer a 14-day free trial, no creditcard required.

Since March 2016, CDN77 has implemented Google’s Brotli compression, an effective compression algorithm for common assets like CSS files, HTML and Javascript. Brotli is said to better reduce data size compared to GZIP by up to 40%.

CDN77’s customer portfolio includes CentOS, Gentoo, phpMyAdmin, Hubble Space Telescope, European Space Agency, R2 Games, Gajin, Rambler.ru, Victorinox, Scania.

Texas-based cloud computing company Rackspace was founded in 1998 and is quite the household name. With their ‘Fanatical Support’ concept, the company distinguishes itself from its competitors by offering to focus on service and support rather than technology.

The core businesses of Rackspace are dedicated servers and cloud servers, though the company has a large portfolio with web services. Among others, the company offers website hosting, application migration, Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) and Apps hosting, database and data analytics, email hosting and CDN services.

Some of the partnered apps in the Marketplace can also be purchased directly via Rackspace. Currently, the Rackspace Marketplace has integrations with:
