CDNetworks’ 2012 Focus on Dynamic Content Acceleration and Emerging Markets Pays Off with 52% Growth in New Logos Bookings

Recapping 2012, CDNetworks increased new logo monthly recurring revenue (MRC) bookings combined in the US and Europe by 52% over 2011. The company’s dynamic acceleration solutions were included in 74% of new bookings MRC and China Acceleration was included in 62% of new bookings MRC. In addition, CDNetworks added more than 40 points of presence for a total of 140 around the globe including in Russia, The Middle East, Africa, South America, and Asia, allowing customers to forge new markets and provide the same user experience no matter where their customers and employees are located.

“Our customers are increasingly realizing the value of accelerating their dynamic content and cloud applications in remote customer and employee sites,” said Jeff Kim, President & COO, CDNetworks Americas & EMEA. “With CDNetworks Dynamic Web Acceleration, our customers have decreased cloud and web application load times from an average of 25 seconds in remote locations to 3 seconds, and reduced time to deliver dynamic content by an average of 300%. All of this without building new datacenters or colocating servers.”

Eighty-eight new logos were added in 2012 including SaxoBank, Thomsons Online Benefits, Demandware, Phillips Van-Heusen, and German-based technology company TuneUp.

“For an internet business, speed and latency issues are unacceptable,” said Matthias Spörlein, Web Development Director at TuneUp. “If pages fail to load in a few seconds or downloads become laborious, people won’t stick around and that just isn’t an option for us. CDNetworks Dynamic Web Acceleration allows us to expand anywhere in the world with optimal web performance.”

Many existing customers have also added Dynamic Web Acceleration including Spain-based Grupo Transhotel. “We just could not allow our service to be hampered by speed or latency problems; we wanted to maintain our high levels of service and ensure that we didn’t put our business and that of our clients at risk,” said Francisco Javier Diéguez, Architecture and Infrastructure Manager of Transhotel.

Other 2012 milestones included the second year of PCI-DSS certification, ensuring that data security measures adhere to the standard. The October 2012 launch of Russia Acceleration established 13 points of presence and local expertise within Russia. CDNetworks continued to extend marketing reach throughout Europe, with the addition of French and German corporate sites.

The revocation of Safe Harbor has radically affected data sovereignty strategy in the cloud. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Jeff Miller, Product Management at Cavirin Systems, discussed how to assess these changes across your own cloud strategy, and how you can mitigate risks previously covered under the agreement.
In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Raju Shreewastava, founder of Big Data Trunk, provided a fun and simple way to introduce Machine Leaning to anyone and everyone. He solved a machine learning problem and demonstrated an easy way to be able to do machine learning without even coding. Raju Shreewastava is the founder of Big Data Trunk (www.BigDataTrunk.com), a Big Data Training and consulting firm with offices in the United States. He previously led the data warehouse/business intelligence and Big Data teams at Autodesk. He is a contributing author of book on Azure and Big Data published by SAMS.
Digital Initiatives create new ways of conducting business, which drive the need for increasingly advanced security and regulatory compliance challenges with exponentially more damaging consequences. In the BMC and Forbes Insights Survey in 2016, 97% of executives said they expect a rise in data breach attempts in the next 12 months. Sixty percent said operations and security teams have only a general understanding of each other’s requirements, resulting in a “SecOps gap” leaving organizations unable to mobilize to protect themselves. The result: many enterprises face unnecessary risks to data loss and production downtime.
While some developers care passionately about how data centers and clouds are architected, for most, it is only the end result that matters. To the majority of companies, technology exists to solve a business problem, and only delivers value when it is solving that problem. 2017 brings the mainstream adoption of containers for production workloads. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben McCormack, VP of Operations at Evernote, discussed how data centers of the future will be managed, how the public cloud best suits your organization, and what the future holds for operations and infrastructure engineers in a post-container world. Is a serverless world inevitable?
Extreme Computing is the ability to leverage highly performant infrastructure and software to accelerate Big Data, machine learning, HPC, and Enterprise applications. High IOPS Storage, low-latency networks, in-memory databases, GPUs and other parallel accelerators are being used to achieve faster results and help businesses make better decisions. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Michael O'Neill, Strategic Business Development at NVIDIA, focused on some of the unique ways extreme computing is being used on IBM Cloud, Amazon, and Microsoft Azure and how to gain access to these resources in the cloud... for FREE!
