SAN JOSE, Calif. -- July 10, 2013

Today, CDNetworks announced that in testing at the SAP® (NYSE: SAP)
Co-Innovation Lab in Palo Alto, CDNetworks Dynamic Web Acceleration (DWA)
solution was shown to improve response times, download times, and reliability
of the internet for accessing SAP® applications. The solution was accordingly
qualified by SAP as suitable for use in SAP solution-based environments. In
addition, CDNetworks has joined the SAP PartnerEdge® program as an SAP
software solution and technology partner.

“SAP is a global leader in enterprise software, and we are thrilled that our
CDNetworks DWA solution has been reviewed and qualified by SAP as suitable for
use in SAP solution-based environments,” said Jeff Kim, President & COO,
CDNetworks. “By turning the internet into a secure, high-performing
application delivery network, CDNetworks helps accelerate application
performance and further ensures availability of mission-critical enterprise
data for customers running SAP solutions.”

CDNetworks worked together with SAP in the SAP Co-Innovation Lab to test the
acceleration of SAP applications for global end-users. The test environment
resembled an on-premise data center, with the SAP NetWeaver® Portal component
exposing business data from an SAP ERP application-based system to the
internet via an application in the SAP NetWeaver Composite Environment.
Third-party testing tools were used, including Compuware Gomez, showing
results that help accelerate SAP applications, which included:

  *650% improvement in login response times
  *66% improvement in global average document download times
  *52% improvement in global average end user response times
  *Double the capacity for number of transactions per minute

The full results have been documented in a white paper study available here.

The reliability and scalability of CDNetworks' global network overrides the
typical internet performance degradations to accelerate delivery of SAP
applications anywhere in the world. CDNetworks provides response times that
are consistent around the globe. In contrast, pure internet-delivered
application performance can vary by as much as 500% between different

As a new SAP software solution and technology partner in SAP PartnerEdge,
CDNetworks has demonstrated the technical integration of its solutions with
SAP software. Integrated partner solutions extend, complement and add value to
SAP solutions, thereby helping mutual customers more successfully meet
business needs and drive strong results.
