SPEEDYRAILS Description

Speedyrails is a hosting provider specialised in Ruby on Rails sites. The Canadian company was founded in 2006 and has facilities in Montreal, Toronto, Vancouver and Miami.

Next to a variety of solutions such as managed hosting, Ruby on Rails hosting, Plesk hosting, private cloud and dedicated servers, Speedyrails also offers a CDN. The company is an Edgecast (Verizon Digital Media Services) reseller, and their pricing is available on the website. The CDN is supplied as a standalone service, and customisation options are available in terms of CDN add-ons and point-of-presence (PoP) coverage.

Verizon also has their own DNS service named Route, which is offered via Speedyrails. Pricing for both the CDN options and DNS are included in the overview below.

Speedyrails has integrated New Relic into their control panel. Clients can easily use the New Relic Ruby Performance Management (RPM) to monitor their apps deployed with Speedyrails. New Relic Bronze subscriptions are available to all Speedyrails clients, for free.

At the time of writing, Speedyrails has clients in 415 cities around the world. Speedyrails customers include, or have included Mobile Fringe, Lynx, PetalMD, Kappboom, Gen Con, Imagine Easy Solutions, Mall Maverick, Ancilla Partners Inc., Animikii Indigenous Technology and MAZ.

Multi-CDN enthousiasts will need to look elsewhere to find additional CDNs as Speedyrails only a single provider, which is EdgeCast.

AppDynamics Description

AppDynamics is a San Francisco-based IT operations analytics and application performance management (APM) provider. The company was founded in 2008 by Jyoti Bansal, who worked for APM tech provider Wily Technologies (now part of CA Technologies) prior to founding AppDynamics. Their services are centred around monitoring and managing the availability and performance of applications within a broad IT environment.

AppDynamics has numerous offices around the world, in the United States, United Kingdom, Germany, France, Spain, Australia, Singapore, India and Japan.

Solutions offered by AppDynamics include, but are not limited to real-user monitoring (RUM) for browser and mobile, synthetic monitoring, database and server monitoring and application analytics.

AppDynamics got into hot water with CA Technologies, who filed a patent infringement suit against the company over their APM technology. CA Technologies had acquired the patents through their acquisition of Wily Technologies in 2006, the same company where Bansal had worked on the design and development of their performance management products. The dispute was settled two years later in favour of CA Technologies. Under a similar claim that Wily Technologies patents had been infringed on, CA Technologies went after New Relic in 2012.

Notable customers of AppDynamics are, or were UBS, Net-a-Porter, DIRECTV, NASDAQ, The Container Store , Sony, eHarmony, Cisco, Overstock, Expedia Affiliate Network and Hallmark.

While AppDynamics monitoring solution includes synthetic data and RUM data, we do not know whether their platform is suitable to use within a multi-CDN solution.
