More on Velocix 2.0
Velocix 2.0 is able to blend bandwidth from its global network together
with Peer-to-Peer (P2P) traffic to guarantee service levels whilst reducing
delivery costs. This hybrid delivery approach overcomes the unpredictability
and quality of service issues encountered when using first generation P2P
delivery mechanisms whilst also significantly reducing delivery costs
experienced when using traditional CDN vendor offerings.
Velocix 2.0 also offers online rich-media content providers the control
they need over their digital content through its unique asset based delivery,
commercial and reporting model. Traditional CDN providers deliver and report
on bits and bytes sent over their networks, no matter whether they arrive
successfully or not. CacheLogic charges and reports only on assets
successfully delivered and allows for required performance and distribution
costs to be dynamically set - asset by asset.
CacheLogic (http://www.cachelogic.com) provides Velocix - the world's
leading Digital Asset Delivery Network, a new generation CDN (Content Delivery
Network) designed to meet the rich media needs of the 21st century Internet.
With its innovative network and service offerings and groundbreaking
asset-based business model, CacheLogic has revolutionized both the 'mechanics'
and economics of content delivery, enabling the Internet to become the
preferred delivery mechanism for large digital assets.
