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.
