HOLACDN Description

HolaCDN is the video CDN from Hola, an Israel-based company known for their Hola VPN and peer-to-peer (P2P) technology, and P2P data mining service Luminati.io.

The solution lets customers combine their own CDN with the network of HolaCDN, to optimise video delivery. The delivery process takes place in two phases:

  1. HolaCDN’s algorithm uses a real-time bidding system to determine the fastest server to deliver the initial chunks of the video;
  2. The following chunks will be delivered from the most cost-effective servers, as there’s plenty of time for them to load in and they do not need to be served out by the fastest server per se.

Customers can integrate the CDN with a variety of existing, third-party video players or use the Open Source Hola Player.

HolaCDN does not publish their network map or the amount and locations of their of points of presence (PoPs). Their network does not need to be extensive due to the nature of video loading: only the initial chunk needs to be served out quickly, what follows is less relevant. So, as far as their network goes – we can only guess.

CDNETWORKS Description

CDNetworks has been around since 2000, and is currently headquartered in Seoul. The company has raised capital with Shinhan Private Equity, Goldman Sachs and Oak Investment Partners, and acquired CDN competitor Panther Express in 2009. The company was bought by Japanese Telco KDDI in 2011. The provider has 169 points of presence (PoPs) worldwide.

CDNetworks offers the usual services within the CDN ecosystem, such as DDoS protection, cloud storage, Web Application Firewall (WAF), managed DNS with load balancing and video acceleration.

The CDN provider has a strong presence in emerging Internet markets such as China, Russia, India and South America. The company operates in mainland China and has been doing so for over 10 years. Currently, CDNetworks has 21 PoPs within China, which are mostly concentrated in the east of the country. The company is licensed by the Chinese government, and their CDNetworks China Acceleration service can be an alternative to homegrown CDN providers ChinaNetCenter and ChinaCache.

Similar to China acceleration, CDNetworks has a special focus on Russia. With 16 PoPs across the country, and a partnership with network operator MegaFon, CDNetworks offers a broad range of delivery services in Russia.
