MICROSOFT AZURE Description

Microsoft’s cloud computing platform Microsoft Azure includes a CDN service in their offering. The platform was released in 2010, initially named Windows Azure and renamed to Microsoft Azure in 2014.

Azure is an Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) solution, and next to a CDN they offer storage solutions, data management, compute and networking. Their IaaS solution is similar to Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Google Compute Engine (GCE). Just like Google, Azure offers free credit to first-time users of the platform to help them get started.

The Azure CDN service uses the networks of Akamai and Edgecast, though it is fully integrated with the cloud platform and offered under the Azure brand. Because the CDN service is offered as a part of the larger Azure IaaS ecosystem, it is easy-to-use for businesses who already use the platform. Other CDNs can be used in combination with Azure products as well, for example with their storage solution.

WARPCACHE Description

Warpcache is a multi-CDN provider founded in 2015 and based in the Netherlands. The company strives to make multi-CDN accessible to both businesses big and small, and just as easy-to-use as a single CDN solution.

The Warpcache multi-CDN solution is called Warpcache. Warpcache uses Real User Measurements or RUM data and DNS-based loadbalancing to find, and select the best performing CDN per request. Current CDN partners of the company include Akamai, EdgeCast, Highwinds, Hibernia, MaxCDN, Comcast, ChinaCache, G-Core, Quantil and Medianova. Warpcache offers these providers in a multi-CDN solution or separately, as a single-CDN service.

With their API-first approach to development, customers can access and control their environment just as easily via the API as they can via the Control Panel. A wide variety of functionality is supported, including: instant purge and purge all, access logs, SSL, custom rules, debugging for multiple CDNs - and more! The pop map is limited to Warpcache’s standard mix. Warpcache is the company behind CDN Overview.
