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.

WEBMOBI Description

WebMobi Network Solutions, or just WebMobi, is a digital media content delivery provider that delivers content to the web and mobile platforms. The company is based in Kerala, India and has 17 PoPs in the US, Europe, Asia and Australia. Their edge locations are mostly concentrated in the US and despite being headquartered in India, the company only has 1 PoP the country, in the city of Cochin.

Presenting itself as a one-stop-shop for all things media delivery, WebMobi offers on-demand ‘packages’ that include bandwidth, storage and transcoding and recording minutes. There are two versions of the packages: standard and premium. The premium package includes transcoding and recording.

According to the WebMobi site, the company offers static content delivery as well. Bandwidth however, always seems to be sold in combination with storage.
