OnApp CDN is a wholesale content delivery network for service providers. Their Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) platform is used by hosting providers, telcos and other service providers . Available services include Cloud Storage, CDN, Application Servers and Disaster Recovery.
OnApp’s CDN-as-a-Service (CDNaaS) can be used by CDN providers with, or without their own infrastructure. Unlike most comercial CDN providers, they do not serve consumer-facing companies - something to bear in mind when comparing different feature overview tables.
