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.

NEW RELIC Description

San Francisco-based New Relic was founded by Lew Cirne in 2008, and provides an application performance monitoring (APM) SaaS platform. Since it’s foundation, New Relic has grown rapidly and besides APM now offers Mobile, Server, Browser and Synthetic monitoring. Their analytics platform Insights collects the data from these products and allows clients to gain better insights into the performance of their environment.

Customers of New Relic are, or have been FlightStats, Yellow Pages, Zendesk, StatusPage.io, Hautelook, Bleacher Report, Miniclip, Tapjoy, Zumba Fitness, Tableau and Move.

More clients of New Relic can be viewed on their website, which includes customer case studies.

The application performance data, and other data monitoring tools of New Relic can be used to control traffic routing within a multi-CDN solution. Based on their monitoring, traffic can be re-routed around under-performing servers, congested PoPs and other network issues.

New Relic is partnered with MaxCDN and Cedexis, demonstrating the relevance of their availability and server resource monitoring products within the CDN and web performance ecosystem.
