A constant for smart phone, PC users, video game players, and any user of the many products that are part of daily life, is the periodic need to download software and file updates. Provide users with a great download experience and you enhance their desire to remain a customer. Don’t let things go wrong with a download and turn them off and risk bad word of mouth. Limelight’s Download Solution solves the challenges unique to each download scenario.
Download file sizes increase with every release as new capabilities and features are added. Distributing massive downloads to a large global user base and living up to user expectations for a fast and robust experience is challenging.
Limelight’s Download Solution ensures your file and software updates are optimally delivered with the lowest latency, best reliability, and highest origin offload. These services are part of Limelight’s powerful edge services platform, which integrates a massive global private infrastructure, advanced content delivery capabilities, and support services.
CDN Origin Storage and edge caching allows you to position large software and file downloads at CDN edges near where your users are located. This speeds time to download and protects your origin from large numbers of requests. The solution allows you to access powerful analytics such as download completion rates, download receipts, and traffic patterns, for smarter business decision-making.
Delivering software downloads and device updates is no easy task. Although the components may seem simple, optimizing them is not. In order to provide the best possible download experience for your end users, you need to fine-tune three critical features of your workflow—the speed at which you deliver your files, the availability of your downloads, and the security of your file-based content. Limelight’s solutions ensure that your files are delivered quickly to your users regardless of where they are, so that you can focus on product development.
