CDNfinder is a London-based CDN broker with a large offering of third-party CDNs. The company was founded in 2010, and at the time of writing counts over 100 clients and features 35 providers.
CDNfinder is both an information hub as much as it is a reseller of a variety of CDNs. For customers interested in comparing CDNs, the website provides a decent overview of the different features and network maps. Not all providers discussed on CDNfinder are resold by them directly. Some CDNs can be ’purchased’ directly via the site while for others a quote can be requested. A third group of CDNs cannot be acquired via CDNfinder, though if the pricing is public it will be included in the description.
An overview of the CDNs on CDNfinder, in no particular order:
Direct purchase via CDNfinder.com
*the website of CDNworld is currently under maintenance. CDNworld seems to be CDNfinder’s own CDN service; both are part of Zerouno Limited. We’ll update this section when more information becomes available.
Quote can be requested from CDNfinder.com
Listed but not resold via CDNfinder.com
As CDN brokers deal in ‘bulk’ they can negotiate better pricing with CDN providers. Acquiring a CDN via them can be interesting for smaller clients with a limited amount of traffic. When working with a CDN broker it is important to mind who is responsible for support and the SLA.
CDNfinder does not seem to provide discounted deals when purchasing multiple CDNs from them. We recommend clients interested in doing so to reach out to their sales team for a custom quote.
The feature overview below covers the amalgamation of the 35 different providers on CDNfinder. Technically all features are available through the broker, though individual differences may apply per CDN provider.
StreamZilla is a dedicated streaming CDN provider with a multi-CDN offering in their portfolio. StreamZilla is the commercial CDN brand of Jet-Stream – a company specialised in CDN and streaming media software development, projects and consultancy. Both companies are based in the Netherlands.
Besides a large catalogue of streaming-related services, StreamZilla offers a multi-CDN solution. Providers currently included in their multi-CDN offering are Level3, Leaseweb, Highwinds, Amazon Cloudfront and Edgecast.
Not all the StreamZilla products include a (multi-)CDN solution, as the company primarily focuses on streaming and video services. For a full overview of StreamZilla’s offering besides CDNs, customers should get in touch with their sales team, or check out the website.
Past and present StreamZilla clients include ING, Red Bull, Nokia, Vodafone, Bol.com, Warner Bros., KLM and Tiësto. More clients are showcased on the StreamZilla website; it is not specified which solutions were provided to each customer.
