OnApp, a provider of content delivery network, has deployed a new Content Delivery Network (CDN) platform at Pacnet, a provider of integrated technology solutions in the Asia-Pacific region.
The CDN will help Pacnet to create a self-owned and self-managed CDN platform across its own substantial datacenter and subsea infrastructure. With this Pacnet will be able to capitalize on its infrastructure investment, gaining significant improvements in flexibility and operational costs.
With OnApp CDN, Pacnet has created a network of Points of Presence (PoPs) in its own datacenters, spanning eight countries in the Asia-Pacific region.
OnApp CDN provides a new way of delivering CDN, said Jon Vestal, VP Product Architecture at Pacnet.
“With OnApp we’ve found a third way, where we can deploy PoPs in our own infrastructure and use the OnApp Federation to extend them however we see fit,” Vestal said.
Ditlev Bredahl, CEO of OnApp, said, “OnApp CDN gives you the software tools to deploy your own PoPs, set up zones and pricing and manage your content, as you’d expect, but when you add the Federation you suddenly open up all kinds of new opportunities.”
Pacnet’s CDN takes advantage of new reseller and routing functionality within the OnApp CDN platform.
OnApp’s new reseller functionality makes it easy for Pacnet to offer reseller-specific access to some or all of their CDN infrastructure – including their own, and federated resources – from within private, custom CDN control panels.
The OnApp Federation also provides a channel for Pacnet to explore business opportunities. By publishing its own locations to the OnApp Federation marketplace other providers can buy capacity from Pacnet, on demand, creating an additional revenue stream for the carrier.
Pacnet’s CDN deployment was completed in less than two months, the company said.
