When it comes to web content acceleration, tests prove that Limelight is #1. Scale, reach, global availability. Limelight Networks technology is the “cloud behind the cloud” offering powerful functionality through private infrastructure and a flexible software platform.

The Network

 

Global Scale

With over 80 locations in 40+ global metro markets, the Limelight Network includes over 10 Tbps of egress capacity ensuring that your content is delivered even when there is a spike.

Private and Secure

The Limelight Network is a leased-wavelength network. We own the gear and manage pipes, keeping all the content we deliver off the public Internet, ensuring smooth and efficient delivery.

 
 

Multi-format Delivery

From RTMP to HTTP, the network includes an array of specialized media servers to deliver your content to any device, anywhere in the world.

Caching and Storage

Jam-packed with cache and origin storage, the network ensures that your content is delivered from storage that is as close to the user as possible.

 
 

Configuration Management

A web-based management console enables you to make configuration changes on the fly.

Delivery Optimization

Proprietary software optimizes every mile of the transaction journey—first, middle, and last—to assure that your content is delivered as quickly as possible.

 
 

Server Density

A dense architecture ensures that resources like storage, memory, and compute are available where the users are assuring a better delivery experience.
