EdgeCast is a premium CDN solution, with world-class performance. If you need the absolute best, and you are willing to pay for it, then make sure you give them a try.
In the past I evaluated their service and found it to be top notch. so is their customer support. Really good, and I wish I could justify the cost of using them. Sadly, I could not.
Technology wise, I can only presume that they have every important CDN feature that you could possible need. They have excellent reporting tools as well.
Configuration is somewhat complex, because they have so many features available. They will be happy to walk you through it though, via web conferencing.
EdgeCastoffer a few advanced features that make it especially desireable:
- Whole Site Optimization will speed up not only the static files, but the dynamic requests as well.
EdgeCast uses a hard-sell technique, requiring you to sign up and give them your personal information just to get their white-papers or a price quote. They are sure to follow up with you via a phone call, so be prepared.
If you are currently using EdgeCast, or have used it recently, please comment on what you like/dislike about it. This will let other readers know what to expect, and help them select the best service for their needs. Thanks!
