In 2014, Comcast debuted their CDN service. With their own CDN in place, Comcast can deliver a better experience to their already existing consumer base. Unique in the CDN landscape, we can label Comcast a B2C CDN service provider.
As the ISP, cable owner and CDN provider, Comcast is able to offer an excellent SLA and potentially lower pricing, when compared to 3rd party CDN providers who do not own the network they operate on.
The Comcast CDN is regional and offers PoPs within the US only. The CDN service is therefore not suited for businesses with a global userbase, unless it is combined with other CDN providers in a multi-CDN setup. Warpcache is a multi-CDN provider that offers the Comcast CDN in combination with others.
Comcast is a very suitable provider for a multi-CDN setup. Warpcache resells multiple providers, both in an integrated multi-CDN solution and separately.
OnApp CDN is a wholesale content delivery network for service providers. Their Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) platform is used by hosting providers, telcos and other service providers . Available services include Cloud Storage, CDN, Application Servers and Disaster Recovery.
OnApp’s CDN-as-a-Service (CDNaaS) can be used by CDN providers with, or without their own infrastructure. Unlike most comercial CDN providers, they do not serve consumer-facing companies - something to bear in mind when comparing different feature overview tables.
