CEDEXIS Description

Cedexis is a provider of intelligent DNS and traffic management services. The company has offices in France, the United Kingdom, and the United States. The founders, former Akamai employees, started the company in 2009 with the goal to optimise webperformance accross content delivery networks (CDNs) and clouds for companies that are looking for 100% availability of their services.

Cedexis collects data via their Radar product. Website owners place a javascript tag on their website and help in the collection of performance data and in return, the website owners get access to the data. Cedexis then uses the data in their intelligent decision making platform Openmix. The Openmix platform allows customers to add the CNAMEs they receive from multiple CDN providers, select the corresponding CDN and then based on the performance data, the fastest CDN’s CNAME will be returned to the end-user making the DNS request. The latest addition to their product portfolio is called Impact, a tool to make the performance impact on Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) clear.

Note that Cedexis does not include a content delivery network in its offering. Customers interested in their services will need to acquire multiple CDNs elsewhere in order to build a multi-CDN solution.

Current and or past customers of Cedexis include Microsoft, Airbus, Dailymotion, AirFrance.

CDNFINDER Description

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.
