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.
In 2015 MetaCDN rebranded their video-on-demand (VOD) and streaming services platform to StreamShark.
MetaCDN offers on-demand bundles in three tiers: Basic, Lite and Pro. Enterprise bundles are available upon request. Customers pay a monthly fee which covers traffic credits, number of sites and a set of features (varies per tier). Not all bundles include multi-CDN.
