INCAPSULA Description

Incapsula Inc. provides a variety of CDN services, from the network itself to security, load balancing, failover solutions and DDoS protection. The company spun out from data security company Imperva in 2009. Incapsula launched Botopedia in 2012, a directory that includes community-sourced information about bots.

At the core of Incapsula’s feature offering lies the content delivery network and a variety of security features such as web application firewall (WAF) and DDoS mitigation.

Incapsula composes comparison tables of its own, which can be viewed on their website - providers they compare themselves to are Akamai and CloudFlare. In the comparison tables they dive deeper into the various security features within the content delivery ecosystem.

Like most other CDN providers, Incapsula integrates well with a variety of Content Management Systems (CMS) and also offers a downloadable extension on their website for Joomla. The extension improves security and performance for Joomla. Other security solutions for third parties offered by Incapsula are targeted at clients hosting with Rackspace, Microsoft Azure and Amazon AWS. All three of these also offer their own CDN solution.

Notable customers of Incapsula include, or have included WiX, BitStamp, Newsweek, Trello, eHarmony, General Electric, BNZ, LivePerson, SendGrid, Tango, **eToro, Moz and Hitachi.

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.
