Texas-based cloud computing company Rackspace was founded in 1998 and is quite the household name. With their ‘Fanatical Support’ concept, the company distinguishes itself from its competitors by offering to focus on service and support rather than technology.
The core businesses of Rackspace are dedicated servers and cloud servers, though the company has a large portfolio with web services. Among others, the company offers website hosting, application migration, Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) and Apps hosting, database and data analytics, email hosting and CDN services.
The company’s CDN is powered by Akamai, and Rackspace resells a custom map with 200 points-of-presence (PoPs):
Note that a limitation to the Rackspace CDN is that clients can only add up to 10 domains (resources) per service.
Rackspace offers a free web-based application called Rackspace Marketplace that enables clients to manage a variety of business applications in a single place. Some of the partnered apps in the Marketplace can also be purchased directly via Rackspace. Currently, the Rackspace Marketplace has integrations with:
Other * New Relic * Cedexis * Neustar UltraDNS * Dynatrace * W3 Total Cache
HolaCDN is the video CDN from Hola, an Israel-based company known for their Hola VPN and peer-to-peer (P2P) technology, and P2P data mining service Luminati.io.
The solution lets customers combine their own CDN with the network of HolaCDN, to optimise video delivery. The delivery process takes place in two phases:
Customers can integrate the CDN with a variety of existing, third-party video players or use the Open Source Hola Player.
HolaCDN does not publish their network map or the amount and locations of their of points of presence (PoPs). Their network does not need to be extensive due to the nature of video loading: only the initial chunk needs to be served out quickly, what follows is less relevant. So, as far as their network goes – we can only guess.
