EdgeCast has developed an easy-to-use, white-label content delivery network (CDN) service that automatically pulls and caches new media on your site in as little as one hour. The result is faster load times from servers that are located around the globe. They are strategically located at the center of the world’s fastest data interchanges, allowing us to deliver more content with less overhead than other CDNs. Our CDN is efficient, scalable and the reason why we routinely outperform older CDNs in performance tests while remaining price-competitive. Adding this to your website decreases processing the power used in basic content delivery, saving that capacity for what matters most: Page load times. The best part of this offering at Simple Helix is that you pay for the service based on what you use: $0.70/GB transfer.
