Warpcache is a multi-CDN provider founded in 2015 and based in the Netherlands. The company strives to make multi-CDN accessible to both businesses big and small, and just as easy-to-use as a single CDN solution.
The Warpcache multi-CDN solution is called Warpcache. Warpcache uses Real User Measurements or RUM data and DNS-based loadbalancing to find, and select the best performing CDN per request. Current CDN partners of the company include Akamai, EdgeCast, Highwinds, Hibernia, MaxCDN, Comcast, ChinaCache, G-Core, Quantil and Medianova. Warpcache offers these providers in a multi-CDN solution or separately, as a single-CDN service.
With their API-first approach to development, customers can access and control their environment just as easily via the API as they can via the Control Panel. A wide variety of functionality is supported, including: instant purge and purge all, access logs, SSL, custom rules, debugging for multiple CDNs - and more! The pop map is limited to Warpcache’s standard mix. Warpcache is the company behind CDN Overview.
Limelight Networks is an Arizona-based CDN provider that owns and operates its own content delivery network. The company was founded in 2001 and has offices in the US, Europe and Asia.
Limelight offers regular CDN services for static content, website acceleration, video streaming (Limelight Orchestrate) and cloud storage. Some of the services in the Limelight portfolio came to be from a variety of acquisitions done by the company in the past. Acquired companies include AcceloWeb (website acceleration), Kiptronic (video) and Delve Networks (video).
In 2006, the CDN provider was sued by Akamai Technologies, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and later by Level3 over alleged patent infringements. In 2015, after a long string of decisions, came an end to the back-and-forth between Akamai and Limelight: Limelight was held liable for direct infringement of an Akamai-held patent by the US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. In response to the ruling, Limelight Networks (NASDAQ:LLNW) fell greatly.
As of today, Limelight is still fighting a portion of the August 2015 decision, prolonging an already long-standing dispute against Akamai.
Limelight serves, or has served notable customers such as Disney, EA Sports, MySpace, Harpo Productions, MTV, Nintendo, Heineken and Carrefour. With the exception of the latter two, these customers are seemingly no longer with Limelight.
