CLOUDFLARE Description

Not to be confused with Amazon Cloudfront, CloudFlare is a San Francisco-based CDN provider founded in 2009.

The company offers a Free plan, which includes a CloudFlare issued SSL certificate. The features included in the Free plan are basic; more become available to Pro, Business and Enterprise customers.

CloudFlare, together with Akamai, Fastly, Highwinds, Level3 and EdgeCast, is part of the Google Cloud Platform CDN Interconnect program. As part of the collaboration, 30 CloudFlare points-of-presence (PoPs) are directly connected to the Google Cloud infrastructure. When a content request comes in from a Google Cloud origin it will route directly through the interconnect between both parties rather than through the public Internet. As a result, latency is reduced for origin requests. Clients using Google Cloud also receive a discount to their egress traffic.

CloudFlare serves, and has served notable brands such as Reddit, Ello, Cisco, Zendesk, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, OkCupid and eHarmony.

HIBERNIA Description

Hibernia Networks is a CDN provider and cable operator, with next generation submarine and terrestrial networks throughout North America, Europe and Asia. The company has over 200 points of presence (PoPs) in 22 locations across the globe, connected by over 27,000 kilometers of fiber.

Hibernia Networks is owned by Constellation Ventures Partners (now part of Highbridge Capital Management) and Columbia Ventures Corporation (CVC), and is a subsidiary of the latter.

The company provides Dynamic synchronous Transfer Mode (DTM), carrier-grade IP transit, dedicated Ethernet and wavelengths services, and is a true end-to-end service provider. In 2015 the company completed their Hibernia Express cable, the first trans-atlantic cable to be built in the last decade. The new cable provides a new low latency connection between major commercial centers in Europe and North America, and utilises the latest generation of optical technologies. Zayo Group and Microsoft were among the cable’s first customers.

Hibernia Networks was founded in 2003 and has since then acquired Atrato IP Networks, MediaXstream and the Media Connect assets from TeliaSonera. The CDN service of Hibernia was launched in 2014.
