Virtualized compute at the network edge combines application flexibility with low latency to help you deliver next-generation solutions and to grow and compete.
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.
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.
Intel processors and SSD storage deliver high performance for any compute task.
Flexible range of virtual machine configuration options can be accessed from a global resource pool for instant allocation and bring-up.
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.
Limelight’s direct peering more than 1,000 ISP’s and cloud providers ensures the highest performance connections across your application workflow, from your infrastructure to your user’s client devices.
Deploy rapidly and scale quickly to meet spikes in demand.
Eliminate costs associated with infrastructure management.
Harness the power of high-performance compute resources and connectivity.
Global PoPs and ISP peering let you easily access your target geographies.
