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.
To create a comparison of OnApp versus other providers, or between the different CDNs built with OnApp, use the search function at the bottom of the page.
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.
