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.

GLOBALDOTS Description

GlobalDots is a large player in the web acceleration industry; they’ve been around for more than 10 years and have offices in the US, Europe and Israel. The company refers to itself as an independent cloud and performance optimisation integration partner, and provides cloud hosting, security, DNS, traffic management, web acceleration, streaming and CDN solutions.

GlobalDots is not a content delivery provider, but a reseller. They provide tailored solutions to customer’s IT challenges, which of course can include content delivery solutions. Customers of the GlobalDots CDN service are signed up with one of the company’s CDN partners, which according to their website is a “major CDN provider” at a price level of a lower tier provider.

Since the actual CDN provider can vary depending on the needs of the customer, there is no uniform overview of the features offered by GlobalDots. Supported features will depend entirely on the CDN partners in the GlobalDots portfolio.

The IaaS portfolio of GlobalDots includes Enhanced DNS and Global Traffic Management. As the company does not disclose which providers it is partnered with, it is unknown which provider(s) take care of the service delivery to the client.

Depending on the client’s needs, and under the assumption that GlobalDots partners with a wide variety of service providers, it is likely that different types of DNS, performance data and CDN solutions are available.

Direct customers of GlobalDots are, or have been:

While, to our knowledge, GlobalDots does not yet resell a multi-CDN provider, their large offering makes it easy to get multiple CDNs, a DNS and a data solution from one place.
