Limelight’s cloud-based Content Delivery Services leverages the world’s largest private Content Delivery Network (CDN) to help meet CDN challenges. The solutions cover various industries such as gaming, software and device manufacturers, media and broadcasters.

It also provides services such as content delivery, video delivery, cloud security services, web acceleration services, and cloud storage services. Objects stored in one of thousands of edge servers around the globe provide near-instantaneous retrieval of content for a better user experience. Limelight’s CDN features industry-leading cache efficiency that is augmented by the integrated Limelight Cloud Storage Services to provide better object retrieval for both popular and long-tail content such as full-length films.

Users can also accelerate content delivery between the client and the CDN edge through a variety of techniques including TCP optimizations, compression, and persistent connections—resulting in an improved user experience. Massively provisioned delivery centers, interconnected via a private fiber-optic network, allow customers to place their content closer to their users, ensuring better digital experiences by reducing latency and round trips to origin. Sometimes customers have to instantly remove incorrect or outdated content from cache.

SmartPurge, Limelight’s revolutionary content invalidation system, immediately renders selected content globally inaccessible—regardless of other services or configurations. SmartPurge prevents usrs’ audience from accessing files even as they are being physically removed from the global network.Content with high abandon rates, such as video and social media, can be rate limited, capping the data transfer rate allocated to each delivery. If a viewer stops watching a video early, the customer is only delivered the portion viewed, keeping the network clear of congestion, and the client pays only for what the user viewed.
