Speed up your Website with Limelight

Published by Mike Solinap
on February 21, 2013

Today’s clients are global — and today’s content is rich. Without adapting to the use of modern tools, dynamic content can slow down the performance of your website, frustrating your potential customers.

The problems of hosting international sites are well known:

  • High Latency
  • Low throughput
  • Non-optimal routing
Cloud computing is one possibility…but not the best one. With cloud, the whole idea is to not worry about where the host is located. It is “in the cloud”. The downside of this is that you cannot target your specific clients with regional caches.

Limelight Networks Content Delivery Network (CDN) resolved this problem by automatically moving content to where it’s used. They excel at:

  • Caching content locally
  • Optimizing video streaming
  • Simplifying deployments

Here’s a quick look at how content is stored in the CDN on Limelight –and how it speeds up your modern website .
