CDNetworks’ Fokus 2012 auf dynamische Content-Beschleunigung und aufstrebende Märkte macht sich mit 52 Prozent Wachstum bei Buchungen für neue Logos bezahlt

Im Rückblick auf 2012 steigerte CDNetworks seine regelmäßigen monatlichen Einnahmen (MRC, Monthly Recurring Revenue) aus Buchungen für neue Logos in den USA und Europa zusammen um 52 Prozent gegenüber 2011. Die Lösungen des Unternehmens für dynamische Beschleunigung waren für 74 Prozent von neuen MRC-Buchungen verantwortlich, während die Beschleunigung in China 62 Prozent von neuen MRC-Buchungen ausmachte. Darüber hinaus fügte CDNetworks über 40 Präsenzpunkte hinzu, womit die Zahl rund um den Globus auf insgesamt 140 steigt, darunter Russland, der Nahe und Mittlere Osten, Afrika, Südamerika und Asien. Kunden können daher neue Märkte erschließen und ungeachtet des Standorts ihrer Kunden und Mitarbeiter dasselbe Nutzererlebnis bieten.

„Unsere Kunden schätzen zusehends den Wert der Beschleunigung ihres dynamischen Contents und von Cloud-Anwendungen an entfernten Kunden- und Personal-Standorten“, erläuterte Jeff Kim, Präsident und Chief Operating Officer von CDNetworks für ganz Amerika und EMEA. „Dank CDNetworks dynamischer Web-Beschleunigung haben unsere Kunden die Ladezeiten für Cloud- und Web-Anwendungen an abgelegenen Standorten von durchschnittlich 25 auf 3 Sekunden reduziert, während sie die Lieferzeit für dynamischen Content um durchschnittlich 300 Prozent gesenkt haben. All dies, ohne neue Rechenzentren zu bauen oder Server zusammenzulegen.“

Im Jahr 2012 wurden 88 neue Logos hinzugefügt, darunter SaxoBank, Thomsons Online Benefits, Demandware, Phillips Van-Heusen sowie die in Deutschland ansässige Technologiefirma TuneUp.

„Für einen Internetbetrieb sind Probleme mit Geschwindigkeit und Latenz inakzeptabel“, betonte Matthias Spörlein, Leiter Web-Entwicklung bei TuneUp. „Wenn Seiten nicht innerhalb von Sekunden hochladen oder das Herunterladen mühsam wird, werden Nutzer nicht abwarten und das kommt für uns einfach nicht in Frage. CDNetworks dynamische Web-Beschleunigung ermöglicht uns eine Expansion rund um die Welt mit optimaler Web-Performance.“

Auch hat eine Vielzahl aktueller Kunden die dynamische Web-Beschleunigung hinzugefügt, wie beispielsweise die in Spanien ansässige Grupo Transhotel. „Wir konnten es uns einfach nicht leisten, dass unser Service durch Probleme mit Geschwindigkeit oder Latenz behindert wird; wir wollten das hohe Niveau unseres Services erhalten und sicherstellen, dass wir unseren Geschäftsbetrieb und den unserer Klienten nicht gefährden“, erklärte Francisco Javier Diéguez, Manager für Architektur und Infrastruktur bei Transhotel.

Zu einem weiteren Meilenstein im Jahr 2012 zählte die PCI-DSS-Zertifizierung im zweiten Jahr, die sicherstellt, dass Maßnahmen zur Datensicherheit dem Standard entsprechen. Die Lancierung der Beschleunigung in Russland im Oktober 2012 führte zu 13 Präsenzpunkten und lokaler Expertise in Russland. Durch die Hinzunahme von französischen und deutschen Firmen-Sites hat CDNetworks den Ausbau seiner Marketingpräsenz in ganz Europa fortgeführt.

Connected devices and the Internet of Things are getting significant momentum in 2014. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, examined three key elements that together will drive mass adoption of the IoT before the end of 2015. The first element is the recent advent of robust open source protocols (like AllJoyn and WebRTC) that facilitate M2M communication. The second is broad availability of flexible, cost-effective ...
How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...
The Internet of Things will put IT to its ultimate test by creating infinite new opportunities to digitize products and services, generate and analyze new data to improve customer satisfaction, and discover new ways to gain a competitive advantage across nearly every industry. In order to help corporate business units to capitalize on the rapidly evolving IoT opportunities, IT must stand up to a new set of challenges. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jeff Kaplan, Managing Director of THINKstrateg...
Cultural, regulatory, environmental, political and economic (CREPE) conditions over the past decade are creating cross-industry solution spaces that require processes and technologies from both the Internet of Things (IoT), and Data Management and Analytics (DMA). These solution spaces are evolving into Sensor Analytics Ecosystems (SAE) that represent significant new opportunities for organizations of all types.

"Matrix is an ambitious open standard and implementation that's set up to break down the fragmentation problems that exist in IP messaging and VoIP communication," explained John Woolf, Technical Evangelist at Matrix, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
When an enterprise builds a hybrid IaaS cloud connecting its data center to one or more public clouds, security is often a major topic along with the other challenges involved. Security is closely intertwined with the networking choices made for the hybrid cloud. Traditional networking approaches for building a hybrid cloud try to kludge together the enterprise infrastructure with the public cloud. Consequently this approach requires risky, deep "surgery" including changes to firewalls, subnets...
DevOps is all about agility. However, you don't want to be on a high-speed bus to nowhere. The right DevOps approach controls velocity with a tight feedback loop that not only consists of operational data but also incorporates business context. With a business context in the decision making, the right business priorities are incorporated, which results in a higher value creation. In his session at DevOps Summit, Todd Rader, Solutions Architect at AppDynamics, discussed key monitoring techniques...

Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using ...
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series dat...
"Verizon offers public cloud, virtual private cloud as well as private cloud on-premises - many different alternatives. Verizon's deep knowledge in applications and the fact that we are responsible for applications that make call outs to other systems. Those systems and those resources may not be in Verizon Cloud, we understand at the end of the day it's going to be federated," explained Anne Plese, Senior Consultant, Cloud Product Marketing at Verizon Enterprise, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at...
"For the past 4 years we have been working mainly to export. For the last 3 or 4 years the main market was Russia. In the past year we have been working to expand our footprint in Europe and the United States," explained Andris Gailitis, CEO of DEAC, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at Cloud Expo, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
The Domain Name Service (DNS) is one of the most important components in networking infrastructure, enabling users and services to access applications by translating URLs (names) into IP addresses (numbers). Because every icon and URL and all embedded content on a website requires a DNS lookup loading complex sites necessitates hundreds of DNS queries. In addition, as more internet-enabled ‘Things' get connected, people will rely on DNS to name and find their fridges, toasters and toilets. Acco...
The term culture has had a polarizing effect among DevOps supporters. Some propose that culture change is critical for success with DevOps, but are remiss to define culture. Some talk about a DevOps culture but then reference activities that could lead to culture change and there are those that talk about culture change as a set of behaviors that need to be adopted by those in IT. There is no question that businesses successful in adopting a DevOps mindset have seen departmental culture change, ...
"Cloud consumption is something we envision at Solgenia. That is trying to let the cloud spread to the user as a consumption, as utility computing. We want to allow the people to just pay for what they use, not a subscription model," explained Ermanno Bonifazi, CEO & Founder of Solgenia, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at Cloud Expo, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
