Limelight Origin Storage Services is fully optimized to enhance CDN workflows

TEMPE, Ariz. – Mar. 29, 2017 — / — Limelight Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq: LLNW), a global leader in digital content delivery, today introduced Intelligent Ingest, a breakthrough capability for Limelight Origin Storage Services that helps customers upload and deliver content better, faster, and more cost-effectively.

Limelight’s Intelligent Ingest simplifies the migration of content to Limelight Origin Storage Services. Intelligent Ingest can be used in two different modes — transparent or directed file ingest – so that customers can populate storage based on audience demand. In the transparent method, requests for content this is not currently available in cache trigger automatic copying of content to Origin Storage. In the directed method, customers provide Limelight with a manifest of a library of content and, when resources and time permit, files are automatically copied to Origin Storage without human intervention.

Limelight Origin Storage Services is built on a distributed object-based storage system, which is tightly integrated with the Limelight private content delivery network (CDN) and optimized for superior content delivery. It delivers superior performance for CDN workflows including video-on demand, file distribution, gaming delivery, and web acceleration. Independent real user measurement solutions such as Cedexis consistently measure Limelight Origin Storage response times as 30-60 percent faster than other cloud storage offerings.

Additional benefits of Limelight’s Origin Storage Services include:

High-Availability: Offers cost-free, automated, policy-based content replication, reducing the risk of content being unavailable and providing a superior customer experience, regardless of location.

Workflow Automation and Efficiency: Allows automatic regional replication on upload and automatically serves content from the fastest location on download. Features such as Intelligent Ingest dramatically simplify tasks that previously were manual, time consuming, and error-prone. Origin Storage supports a wide range of powerful tools that let you upload content in a way that’s consistent with your workflow, including a versatile Upload API as well as support for other popular file transfer protocols.

Multi-CDN Capable: Can serve as the primary or backup origin for any delivery service or CDN, regardless of the location and size of the content library.

“Managing a large content library can be a challenge from a cost and infrastructure perspective for many companies today,” said Nigel Burmeister, Vice President of Marketing at Limelight Networks. “With Limelight Origin Storage Services, customers can easily add new content, monitor usage, manage the life cycle, and deliver an exceptional customer experience every time.”

To encourage customers to experience the benefits of Origin Storage, Limelight is now offering all existing and new customers 25GB of free storage.
