Limelight’s edge cloud eliminates the cost, complexity, and latency of utilizing traditional cloud computing environments 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 who 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 ISPs and cloud service providers to deliver the fastest performance. Limelight’s flexible edge compute options include serverless, virtual machine and bare metal solutions. Limelight offers edge compute capabilities, how and where you need them.
Limelight EdgeFunctions is a serverless compute platform that automatically makes your code available to many edge locations around the world, executes at the network edge close to the user to ensure the lowest latency, and scales to meet demand. EdgeFunctions is ideal for customers needing to implement streaming video and content delivery use cases such as personalized streaming, access control, dynamic ad insertion, A/B testing, image manipulation and more. It is tightly integrated with one of the world’s highest-performing video and Content Delivery Networks (CDNs). EdgeFunctions gives developers tools to boost performance, customize workflows and scale rapidly while only paying for resources used.
Limelight offers global virtualized compute capacity that makes it easy to scale and grow as your needs change. Intel processors and SSD storage deliver high-performance for any compute task. Multiple virtual Linux server distributions are available with varying levels of CPU, RAM, storage, and network bandwidth to meet your specific requirements. An easy to use control panel lets you manage and monitor your deployments as well as load-balance or backup your configuration. APIs and a command-line interface are also available.
Dedicated bare metal servers are available to give you compute power where you need it without having to share resources or deal with hypervisors. Limelight offers an array of hardware configurations featuring Intel and AMD processors with multiple levels of physical cores, RAM, storage, and network bandwidth. Dedicated servers can be deployed across Limelight’s global network to support your workload in any region or location. You can choose a Limelight-provided OS or load your own remotely. You’ll have remote management capability via an intuitive portal or RESTFUL APIs and a secure IPMI lights-out management capability.
