LIMELIGHT BARE METAL COMPUTE AT THE EDGE

CHALLENGES

Businesses are under pressure to deliver more functionality, better responsiveness, higher quality and improved personalization. Bare metal servers give you direct access to dedicated system resources for fast compute, but if the resources are limited to one centralized location performance can suffer at global scale.

HOW LIMELIGHT BARE METAL AT THE EDGE ADDRESSES THE CHALLENGES

Limelight’s Bare Metal as a Service (BMaaS) lets you maximize performance by having direct access to dedicated compute power at the network edge without being impacted by shared resources or hypervisors. You can deploy applications to enhance streaming video and content delivery services, deploy global applications, create digital content, and perform real time data processing. Unlike traditional cloud service providers that only offer compute in a limited number of centralized regions, Limelight edge computing instances are embedded in Points of Presence (PoPs) around the world. Compute infrastructure is integrated with Limelight’s secure global network, which provides direct peering with more than 1,000 Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and cloud service providers to deliver the fastest end-to-end solution performance.
