SWIFTSERVE Description

SwiftServe is a Singapore-based CDN provider that was founded as a joint-venture by Versio4 Ltd (software, web and mobile product development) and Conversant PTE Ltd (product offering and support services).

The provider has a strong presence in South-East Asia, with customers such as Singapore Airlines, Starhub, True Corporation and Singtel in their portfolio. SwiftServe also has a reseller offering, a dedicated service under the name of SwiftCDN that allows Network Service Providers to sell the CDN under their own brand. Known resellers of SwiftServe are Telin (Telekomunikasi Indonesia International) and Chunghwa Telecom.

SwiftServe offers web acceleration, large file download, hybrid CDN, transparent caching, video streaming and site optimisation and security. Their network is not published on the website, and we have no information on their point-of-presence (PoPs) coverage.

CACHEFLY Description

CacheFly is a Chicago-based CDN provider, with over 40 Points of Presence (PoPs) spread over six continents. Next to the usual locations, Cachefly has PoPs in India, Qatar, Egypt and South Africa.

The Cachefly network is optimised for throughput, making it more suitable for the delivery of large files.

Instead of DNS-based global loadbalancing, the company’s CDN infrastructure relies on TCP Anycast routing.

CacheFly offers the usual features in the CDN industry such as instant purge, origin shielding, real-time reporting and sub-accounts. They also offer a 100% availability SLA and 247 support.
