Legacy Approach for CDN Infrastructure

  • 1. Provision the infrastructure.
  • 2. Ops will need to engineer for scalability and uptime.
  • 3. Connect all controllers and components.
  • 4. Upgrade each component.
  • 5. Test each upgrade component.
  • 6. Repeat.

100% Cloud-Managed Operator CDN

Our customers deploy on-net Qwilt cache software, and this software connects over the Internet to Qwilt’s datacenters. We have cloud presence points around the world, and servers inside these datacenters do the heavy lifting of managing, monitoring, and maintaining your network.

There’s no overlay management software or hardware like traditional CDNs that you need to deploy onsite. It’s all in the cloud. As an administrator, you manage your network through a secure, browser-based dashboard, so you have visibility and control of your entire network.



Legacy Approach for CDN Operations

  • 1. Get your analysts to model future usage patterns.
  • 2. Pad the estimate and start the paperwork.
  • 3. Build a business case to reflect a future return.
  • 4. Restart the process for flash events.
  • 5. Procure new hardware and software and plumbing.

Living on The Edge

We have years of experience deploying hundreds of edge cloud nodes at the true edge of the network, often just a few miles away from your subscribers. We understand the complexities of true edge deployments and have architected our software for the unique requirements of the edge: smallest footprint, maximum performance, supreme resilience and simplest operational model possible.

Telco Grade / Open Source Core

The core technology powering our CDN was originally designed and built by operators. This core is actively delivering multiple Tbps of traffic daily. We've built upon this core and enhanced it with the latest and greatest in web-scale technology, combining cloud-powered Qwilt management and control. With great emphasis on simplicity and ease-of-management, as well as the increased resilience and scalability offered by the cloud, we created an extremely fast, reliable and secure CDN solution that can fit your needs as a service provider, regardless of your size.
