Medianova was founded in 2005 by a team of entrepreneurs with a background in live football games. Operating in the web games market, the team had a need for streaming backbone services, and Medianova was born. The company is specialised in video and audio streaming solutions, and live encoding and streaming, and has a CDN.
The company is headquartered in İstanbul, and claims they have a 60% market share in Turkey, within the CDN and streaming market.
Medianova has a strong presence in Turkey, and the network coverage of their CDN is also concentrated in Turkey and EMEA (Europe, the Middle East and Africa) region.
As to their exact network map, there is no information publicly available.
While Medianova predominantly caters to the video and audio market, it also offers:
Medianova works with a few resellers to distribute their products. Warpcache is one of their partners and offers Medianova services both separately, and integrated in their multi-CDN solution.
Medianova’s stronger presence in Turkey makes them an excellent provide to have in a multi-CDN mix, while the company does not have a global network.

Limelight Networks is an Arizona-based CDN provider that owns and operates its own content delivery network. The company was founded in 2001 and has offices in the US, Europe and Asia.
Limelight offers regular CDN services for static content, website acceleration, video streaming (Limelight Orchestrate) and cloud storage. Some of the services in the Limelight portfolio came to be from a variety of acquisitions done by the company in the past. Acquired companies include AcceloWeb (website acceleration), Kiptronic (video) and Delve Networks (video).
In 2006, the CDN provider was sued by Akamai Technologies, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and later by Level3 over alleged patent infringements. In 2015, after a long string of decisions, came an end to the back-and-forth between Akamai and Limelight: Limelight was held liable for direct infringement of an Akamai-held patent by the US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. In response to the ruling, Limelight Networks (NASDAQ:LLNW) fell greatly.
As of today, Limelight is still fighting a portion of the August 2015 decision, prolonging an already long-standing dispute against Akamai.
Limelight serves, or has served notable customers such as Disney, EA Sports, MySpace, Harpo Productions, MTV, Nintendo, Heineken and Carrefour. With the exception of the latter two, these customers are seemingly no longer with Limelight.
