YOTTAA Description

Yottaa is a CDN company founded in 2009 by Bob Buffone and Coach Wei. The company is headquartered in Waltham (near Boston), in the United States. Starting out as a traditional CDN, Yottaa later pivoted to position User Engagement at the core of their proposition, landing them in a category of their own within the CDN industry.

The company aim to close the ’experience gap’ - a term coined by Yottaa to describe the discrepancy between the expectations of users of a website, and the actual website that that is delivered from them. Underlying this concept is the increasing complexity of websites and applications, and the challenge of making them suitable for any device, that impact the digital experience of a user. Yottaa’s SaaS platform is designed with the mission to close the experience gap by optimising the end user experience, on all devices.

Yottaa offers a traditional CDN, which includes Dynamic Site Acceleration (DSA), Front-End Optimisation (FEO), edge caching, bandwidth offloading, cloud storage and an origin shield. It’s a CDN solution in its own right, though the Yottaa platform also works with any other CDN and CDN provider, as long as a public API is available. Which solution is preferable entirely depends on the needs of a customer - e.g. certain security or media streaming wishes may call for different CDN providers.

An overview of Yottaa’s products and solutions:

  • AdaptiveCDN - real-time management, context-aware caching, multi-vendor capabilities
  • AppSequencing - orchestrates when and how application content is delivered and displayed
  • ContextAgent - asynchronously injects dynamic content into the browser
  • ContextIntelligence - adapts rules and actions real-time for personalised content delivery and acceleration, and security
  • ContextSAFE - bot detection and DDoS mitigation
  • InstantON - automatic optimisation and caching of static content, origin shield

Yottaa has raised $29m in funding from venture firms Stata Venture Partners, General Catalyst Partners and Intel Capital Partners. Growth of the company has been steep on all fronts - growth in terms of team size, in terms of revenue and in terms of customer base.

Customers of Yottaa are, or have been eBags, Billabong, Jelly Belly, PCM, Moosejaw, MagnetStreet, Shoebuy.com, Barstool Sports, Kill Cliff, Fathead, The Tie Bar, Jockey International and Charming Charlie.

Yottaa supports a multi-vendor CDN setup on their platform. We do not know to what extent the setup is customisable and configurable.

EASYDNS Description

easyDNS Technologies Inc. or just easyDNS is a Canada-based Internet Service Provider founded in 1998. The company supplies web hosting, email, domain registration and managed Anycast DNS.

The company provides a REST based API to connect to the easyDNS platform, of which the documentation can be found here.

easyDNS has been the center of controversy a few times. Most notably is the aftermath of a confusion between the company and similarly-named EveryDNS. EveryDNS cut WikiLeaks off their DNS service, and easyDNS faced some of the resulting backlash due to mixups of both company names on Twitter. While initially being uninvolved with WikiLeaks, easyDNS now hosts three WikiLeaks domains, as per their request. These domains are wikileaks.org, wikileaks.ch and wikileaks.nl. Find more information on the affair here.

Clients of easyDNS include, or have included PHP, Debian, The Horde Project, Enlightenment, City of Toronto, thestar.com and Torstar, Versature, Sun Life Financial, Zero Hedge and Toronto 2015 Pan Am / Parapan Am Games.
