Learn how one company's automated CDN and ISP testing enhances traffic delivery for streaming video and more.
"Our goal is fairly modest," said Robert Malnati, vice president of marketing for Cedexis, somewhat tongue in cheek. "We want to make the internet better for every user."
Cedexis and its Openmix service unification attempts to automate the optimization of end-user experiences across vendors, from content delivery networks (CDNs) and off-net points of presence (POPs) to on-net cloud and public/private data centers.
"Openmix sits between network core and the end-user," said Malnati. "We use 48 nodes deployed around the world, across a variety of data centers, to confirm real-time optimization. At its core, Openmix is a load balancer."
"It's not P2P, but a measurement of how bandwidth and object optimization can shave seconds off a page load," said Malnati. Openmix is akin to an automated DSL Reports test run.
"Except we do this billions of times per day," Malnati said.
