Content Delivery Network (CDNSearch.com)

SingleHop Announces CDN

September 12th, 2008

SingleHop has announced it’s own content delivery network, dubbed IPCast. SingleHop focuses on managed web hosting, and with it’s IPCast, is aiming to bring CDN services to the SME segment, which has arguably been untouched by content delivery network providers.

The company expects high-demand from it’s new offering, by clients that are interested in CDN services, but have held off due to large commitments, and high prices. “IPCast will be billed at usage, at only $.20 per gigabyte, which is unheard of in the industry thus far. We’re excited to be about to offer IPCast at this price, with no commitment at all. “, says Zak Boca, President of SingleHop

The IPCast Content Delivery Network will be autoprovioned via the firm’s control panel- LEAP, which is the industries first Webtop for managed dedicated servers.

What are the benefits to a CDN over standard hosting?

September 4th, 2008

It’s important to first understand how a content delivery network differs. Let’s say that you select a web hosting provider that has their data center in Dallas, Texas, and you host a number of videos on your server in Dallas. If someone from California tries accessing your file, he literally will travel through various providers to access your server in Dallas, and then all way back to California. If instead you had your content in California near this visitor, he would travel over less providers, thereby receiving faster speeds, and also avoid possible network latency. Since the US accounts for around 60% of Internet traffic, it’s likely that you have a large number of visitors outside of the US as well, so traveling from Tokyo back to Dallas is quite a haul, and can be very slow.

The way a content delivery network works in this respect, is that it pulls your files from Dallas, and spreads it throughout the world on a number of ‘nodes’. These nodes will stream your content to visitors by using advanced routing technology. The end-result is a if you select a CDN provider that has nodes in London, and you have a visitor from London, they’ll pull the file form your content delivery network from London, delivering your files with fewer ‘hops’.

Resulting benefits include the ability to deliver HD quality content with high quality of service, relatively low delivery costs, extremely low network load.
