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 At the time of writing, the listings on the website seem out-of-date, as GameStop, Staples, Shutterstock, Yum!, L’Oreal and Pizza Hut no (longer) look to be customers of Instart Logic.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.

Instart Logic supports SPDY.
