CHINANETCENTER Description

ChinaNetCenter is one of the leading Chinese Internet service platform providers that offers both coverage of mainland China and in the rest of the world. ChinaNetCenter was founded in 2000 and was listed on the Shenzhen Stock Exchange in 2009. Its US subsidiary MileWEB was set up in 2012 and tasked with globalising ChinaNetCenter’s CDN services. Global sales operations followed in 2014 and MileWEB was renamed to Quantil.

The company has over 500 ‘CDN nodes’ in mainland China, covering all the major cities. Another 60 of these CDN nodes, what we assume are PoPs, are located in Europe and the United States. Next to CDN services, ChinaNetCenter offers server hosting and rental.

Features or products offered by ChinaNetCenter include the usual, such as download delivery, site acceleration, mobile acceleration and media streaming.

Notable customers of the company are, or have been Sony, Ogilvy, HTC, Baidu, Tencent, Ebay, Lenovo, Perfect World, Taobao and Peugeot.

Note that international businesses require an Internet Content Provider (ICP) license to operate their site from China. Most Chinese CDN providers such as ChinaNetCenter and Quantil offer support to clients applying for the ICP license. Mind that without a license, Chinese ISPs are required to restrict access to the website.

INSTART LOGIC Description

Instart Logic is a CDN provider founded in 2010, and is headquartered in Palo Alto, California. The company is known for its $100 million contract buyout campaign targeted at Akamai customers.

Customers in the Instart Logic portfolio include, or have included: Quora, Washington Post, and Kongregate. At the time of writing, the listings on the website seem out-of-date, as GameStop, Staples, Shutterstock, Yum!, L’Oreal and Pizza Hut no (longer) look to be customers of Instart Logic. At least not for static file delivery.

Through a partnership with ChinaCache, Instart Logic offers coverage of mainland China with points of presence (PoPs) in roughly 140 cities.

Instart Logic supports SPDY.
