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 At the time of writing, the listings on the website seem out-of-date, as GameStop, Staples, Shutterstock, Yum!, L’Oreal and Pizza Hut no (longer) look to be customers of Instart Logic.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.
Through a partnership with ChinaCache, Instart Logic offers coverage of mainland China with points of presence (PoPs) in roughly 140 cities.
Instart Logic supports SPDY.
Quantil is the US subsidiary of mothercompany ChinaNetCenter, and is headquartered in Santa Clara, California. The company was originally named MileWEB, but when global sales operations were launched in 2014 the subsidiary was renamed to Quantil.
With over 550 points-of-presence (PoPs) in mainland China and 38 more in the rest of the world, Quantil’s network map is expansive.
Just like ChinaNetCenter, Quantil supports a wide range of web delivery services such as website acceleration, mobile acceleration, large download delivery, video-on-demand and live streaming.
For businesses operating their website in mainland China, it is recommended to apply for an ICP license. Most CDN providers offer to aid clients with this process, Quantil included. Without an ICP license, Chinese Internet Service Providers (ISPs) are required to block access to the website.

The CDN service of Quantil and ChinaNetCenter is resold by other parties, among which Warpcache. Get in touch here for more information about delivering web content in China, or to request pricing information and / or a custom quote.
Next to mainland China CDN coverage, Warpcache resells other global CDN providers both separately, and in a multi-CDN solution.
