Centralized Distribution topology

This distribution topology puts massive computing power and high-bandwidth capacity at centralized locations delivering more from cache to achieve best server-to-delivery ratio.

Horizontally scalable PoP architecture

Horizontal scaling with edge cloud clusters and proprietary L7 load balancing allows you to achieve greater scalability.

Fault-safe design

Proprietary technology combined with above-centralized architecture helps to tolerate disk, server, rack or data-center failure without human intervention.


Equipped with Better Technology


EdgeCast CDN is built to stay abreast of the latest & better technology thus delivering industry-leading performance at the edge.

Patented Proprietary Caching algorithm

When combined with centralized architecture & Super PoP’s, the caching algorithm achieves over 95% cache hit ratio.
