At Limelight, we’re taking the technology lead by innovating at a faster pace and bringing to market what our customers want and need in order to create the world’s best content experiences. 2017 appears to be a banner year for product innovation and customer support. We’re planning a major refresh of our Orchestrate Platform with significant enhancements to our infrastructure, software, and services. Here’s a look at what’s ahead:
- Optimized TCP/IP Implementation: Limelight has teamed up with two of the largest video content and delivery companies in the world to develop a next generation TCP/IP stack. The new environment will enable us to deliver video and live streams with higher quality than ever seen before. Watch for details in the coming months.
- Arc Light: Arc Light harnesses the power of Limelight’s edge servers to facilitate real-time modifications of user requests and origin responses. You’re able to process specialized tasks right at the network edge to improve the user experience, provide a faster time to transaction, and enhance content access security.
- Intelligent Ingest: This capability automatically accelerates the ingest of entire content libraries into Limelight Cloud Storage Services for faster delivery. User-requested content not in the CDN cache can be automatically retrieved and uploaded or you can provide a manifest of content to upload. These new capabilities help simplify your content management processes.
- Security: A new suite of security features and functions for small to mid-sized businesses that offers the ability to protect websites, applications and their associated origins from malicious requests.
