3 Reasons to consider Aryaka’s SmartCDN for your Global Business

The Content Delivery Network (CDN) market continues to evolve as new technologies and startups force change upon the landscape, and it seems there is no end in sight to the disruptions.

Startups are introducing new ways of using innovative cloud-based architectures and challenging legacy technologies to conduct business cheaper and faster. Additionally, technology sectors such as security and WAN are collapsing into the CDN industry.

All this change is good for the buyers of these services because they have more choices than ever before — however, with the abundance of choices, it’s easy to get confused about what exactly buyers are getting, as vendors market themselves in similar ways.

Traditional CDNs focus on the caching and delivery of static content. Video CDNs improve video streaming (live and VOD) experiences using encoding and repackaging technologies. Security CDNs provide Web Application Firewall (WAF) and DDoS Mitigation services via scrubbing centers. A different class of CDNs is focused on accelerating personalized, dynamic content.

Aryaka’s SmartCDN falls in this last category. SmartCDN is an innovative and unique, high-performance CDN platform built to deliver and accelerate dynamic IP applications. We’ve built a full-service global CDN from the ground up, tailored to meet the needs of global SaaS providers, e-commerce companies, and other worldwide enterprises.

Here are three reasons why Aryaka’s SmartCDN is something that today’s businesses must consider deploying

1) Custom-built Platform For Dynamic Content Delivery

Aryaka’s SmartCDN solution is built to address the needs of dynamic applications and focused on accelerating truly personalized, bi-directional content for every request, and provides a reliable and fast network pathway globally for dynamic content.

Traditional CDN’s provide dynamic content acceleration capability by bolting on some of the required functionality on top of their existing architectures, which are highly optimized for static content delivery. Some CDN vendors claim to do “dynamic content delivery” while only supporting cached pages with a short TTL that can be shared with all users for a period of a few seconds. These solutions don’t work for the transaction-oriented bi-directional interactive applications that the industry is moving towards.

In addition to providing HTTP(s) acceleration, Aryaka’s SmartCDN can also accelerate the performance at the TCP level for non-HTTP(S) applications. It also works well for mobile applications. SmartCDN is a truly application-agnostic dynamic content delivery platform.

2) Dynamic Content Delivery Is Provided over a Global Private Network

CDN FOR YOUR GLOBAL BUSINESS

Aryaka is one of very few providers that offers a CDN service powered by a global private network infrastructure. This means traffic spends less time on the public Internet and more time on our global private network, which is built by aggregating multiple layer-2 point-to-point links from top-tier telcos worldwide.

This technology is a stark contrast to traditional CDN solutions that rely on the public Internet for content delivery. A few solutions attempt to accelerate access by routing traffic through the “path of least resistance”,” but packet loss and jitter are unavoidable on the middle mile of the public Internet, adversely affecting web and SaaS application performance.

Traditional CDNs do a good job of improving performance for static content by building high-end caching platforms. However, this doesn’t work for dynamic apps and interactive content that can never be cached. The true judge of dynamic content delivery is the middle mile’s quality, intelligence, and functionality since the content needs to be retrieved from the origin server every time it is accessed.

3) Content Delivery Purpose-Built for the Global Enterprise
