LEASEWEB Description

LeaseWeb is a global Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) provider founded in 1997, and a daughter company of OCOM Group. LeaseWeb is a one-stop-shop for a wide range of Internet services such as colocation, cloud hosting, dedicated servers and a CDN solution.

The company is headquartered in Amsterdam, in the Netherlands.

LeaseWeb’s network includes 58 ‘PoPs’ and 6 ’SuperPoPs’. In CDN terms however it is the SuperPoPs that we consider to be the regular points-of-presence as we know them: servers where content is cached. The remaining 58 locations are networking PoPs where a request enters the LeaseWeb network, but no content is cached.

Notable customers of LeaseWeb include Kaspersky Lab, Grundig and Twenga.

LeaseWeb hosts the European hub of the Wikimedia Foundation, as part of a €300,000 gift in kind to the foundation. The company was also one of the hosting providers of Megaupload, and in 2013 wiped 630 of their dedicated servers clean of Megaupload user data. LeaseWeb issued a statement explaining their decision, stating there were no requests to to access or retain the data for over a year, and that the company had been running and maintaining the servers at its own expense. Megaupload’s assets were seized by the U.S. government and it could not pay its hosting partners. Petabytes of data were lost forever, and the act is considered a scandal and a betrayal by Megaupload sympathisers. Megaupload’s main hosting partner Carpathia, decided to keep storing the servers at their own expense. While the Carpathia servers are disconnected and stored, the data so far seems protected from destruction.

Through their Community Outreach Project, LeaseWeb supports organisations that combat cybercrime and spam by offering free hosting services. In 2009 the company ran a pilot for preventive filtering of online child porn in cooperation with Swedish company NetClean, the Dutch Ministry of Justice and the Dutch Child Porn Hotline. While from a technological perspective LeaseWeb was pleased with the outcome, there were still some hurdles to be addressed in cooperation with the Dutch National Police Services Agency.

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.
