CDNetworks Launches Self-Service CDN Product, CDN360

Global CDN provider CDNetworks has launched its self-service CDN product, CDN360. The new product would deliver the performance and stability of a traditional content delivery network (CDN) while providing significantly greater flexibility and control.

CDN360 runs NGINX on the edge. It would allow users to configure cache behavior using the well-known NGINX configuration syntax. Further, CDN360 allows users to customize their service coverage according to their content distribution and budgetary requirements.

“We are pleased to launch CDN360 as the next generation CDN,” said Sergey Nikitin, Director of Product Management from CDNetworks. “CDN360 provides unique self-service capabilities, along with a friendly, yet powerful user interface and API, for seamless integration into your SDLCs.”

Key features of the new CDN360 product unveiled by CDNetworks would include:

Familiar NGINX Syntax for edge behavior configuration (Edge Logic) – To process request/response on the edge with familiar tools.

Access Control at the Edge – “Easy-to-implement” sophisticated access-control algorithms with Edge Logic to process requests to protected content at the edge.

China Delivery – Over 50 POPs in mainland China with more to come.

State-of-the-art Load Balancing – Dynamic monitoring of the Internet and direct traffic are based on real-time performance metrics and system-load information.

Seamless Integration – With a rich API, Edge Logic, and processing at the edge, users can implement features at the CDN level without touching an application codebase.

Ease of use – Created for engineers. According to CDNetworks, it’s easy to get started by anyone with a minimum background in CDN, yet sufficiently powerful for advanced users as well.
Flexible Cost / Performance management – CDN360 would empower users to self-customize service coverage and manage expenses according to the required performance.
