NSONE Description

NSONE or NS1 is a provider of intelligent DNS and traffic management services. The company is headquartered in New York, and has offices in San Francisco and in Singapore. Founded in 2013 by a team with first-hand experience in building content delivery networks (CDNs), infrastructure APIs and cloud platforms, NSONE came about to enable and improve present day’s dynamic infrastructures.

NS1 leverages infrastructure, network and real time user data to allow customers on their platform to create customised routing setups for a wide variety of applications. They offer data driven traffic management, managed DNS and dedicated DNS. Their product Pulsar is designed for real-time performance-based traffic routing, and offers fully automated traffic management functionality that can be used in a multi-CDN solution.

Note that NS1 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 NS1 include Yelp, imgur, PulsePoint, onelogin, Algolia, Teridion, Thaifriendly, CDN provider MaxCDN and multi-CDN provider TurboBytes.

The network status of NS1 can be viewed here. The company has had periods of downtime and degraded performance, which have had a direct impact on clients. For more comparative information specifically on DNS performance we recommend websites such as DNSPerf.

STREAMZILLA Description

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.
