The New “clouds within clouds” Model from MetaCDN.com Offers Start-Ups and
Small-to-Medium Sized Businesses an Unparalleled Level of Flexibility,
Agility, and Stability
LONDON -- November 28, 2012
The MetaCDN.com content delivery network pulls together existing cloud devices
into one single network to provide simple, cheap and reliable cloud delivery
services. It allows for global content distribution where more traditional
models have not been able to.
Jeff Weiner, CEO of LinkedIn, said that such cloud technology “makes it easier
and cheaper than ever for anyone anywhere to be an entrepreneur and to have
access to all the best infrastructure of innovation.” Startups shouldn’t have
to worry about why users can’t access their site or why the load time is slow.
MetaCDN.com provides seamless integration of multiple distributed service
providers allow entrepreneurs to stop playing server admin and focus on their
Traditional web sites deliver files from a single server location, which works
well when users are all close to the server. Problems arise when site users in
Australia attempt to view a website with a server in New York – the distance
makes the site load slowly. To combat the delay services have sprung up to
store and deliver content from dozens of places across the globe.
Content can be delivered from about 30 locations around the globe, they cannot
be everywhere. Some providers lack servers in areas of online growth, such as
Central/South America, Asia, and Africa. Meanwhile, local CDNs serve Asia, but
provide limited service to foreigners.
MetaCDN.com provide a solution to this problem through multiple devices. For
example, recent Amazon outages have shut down popular sites like Netflix,
Instagram, Pinterest, Reddit, Imgur, but when MetaCDN detected the outage for
their clients, users were re-routed to backup networks without anyone
