CHINACACHE Description

Founded in 1998, ChinaCache is one of the earliest CDN providers in China. The company has a large coverage of mainland China, with additional points-of-presence (PoPs) in the rest of the world. The CDN services of ChinaCache are exploited through different divisions, such as NovaCDN and Webluker.

ChinaCache has a 120 points of presence (PoPs) in mainland China, in all major cities and regions of the country. They service well-known brands such as Big Fish Games, Uber, LinkedIn, Coach, Intel and Adobe.

Businesses operating their website in China require an Internet Content Provider (ICP) license. While not mandatory, Chinese Internet Service Providers are required to restrict access to sites without such a license. ChinaCache provides business with support to obtain an ICP license.

ChinaCache has offices in Hong Kong, Beijing, London and the US.

SYNEDGE Description

SynEdge is a Luxembourg-based CDN provider with sales offices in the United Kingdom and the Netherlands. The company is a subsidiary of the POST Luxembourg group, a large, semi government-owned mail and telecommunications corporation in Luxembourg. Other related subsidiaries include European Business Reliance Centre (EBRC), Visual Online, Eltrona, Victor Buck Services and InTech.

Based on the network map of SynEdge, we assume they lease (part of) the network of Highwinds, possibly with a few added points-of-presence (PoPs) of their own.

Next to regular static content delivery, SynEdge offers private CDN, dynamic content delivery, frontend optimisation and storage.

Customers of SynEdge are, or have been Telemetry and Gamehouse.
