LIMELIGHT VIRTUAL MACHINE AT THE EDGE

Virtualized compute at the network edge combines application flexibility with low latency to help you deliver next-generation solutions and to grow and compete.

CHALLENGES

Businesses are under pressure to deliver more functionality, better responsiveness, higher quality and improved personalization. Virtualized compute is a flexible solution for deploying advanced solutions, but if the compute resources are limited to one centralized location performance can suffer at global scale.

HOW LIMELIGHT VIRTUAL MACHINE AT THE EDGE ADDRESSES THE CHALLENGES

Limelight’s Virtual Machine as a Service provides global virtualized compute capacity that makes it easy to scale and grow as your needs change. 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 performance.
