Hostway’s Edge Caching content delivery network will provide access to video clips from CTAM Summit 08.
Chicago, IL (Vocus/PRWEB ) November 7, 2008 — Hostway Corporation, the global Web solutions leader, was chosen by the Cable and Telecommunications Association for Marketing (CTAM) to host video clips of the association’s Summit 08, held November 9-11 in Boston. Hostway will deliver these clips using its patent-pending content delivery network (CDN), “Edge Caching.”
“Hostway is proud to have been selected by CTAM as their CDN solution provider,” said John Lee, senior vice president for Hostway. “Our Edge Caching service takes advantage of Hostway’s worldwide network of data centers to deliver content over the Internet without the long wait times typically associated with online video.”
Edge Caching is a system of servers deployed across four continents that operate together to deliver content via the Internet. When a visitor downloads a CTAM Summit video clip, Edge Caching will select the best servers in terms of proximity and traffic load and rapidly deliver the video to the end-user from those servers. With multiple servers working toward the same goal, Edge Caching drastically reduces the amount of time it takes to deliver the video clips.
