TechCrunch Taps Cotendo as Its Preferred Content Delivery Network

SAN CARLOS, CA — 06/29/09 — Cotendo, a content delivery network and innovator of software-focused CDN technologies, today announced that its Content Delivery Service has been adopted by TechCrunch as its preferred CDN platform. TechCrunch is leveraging Cotendo’s high-performance delivery and real-time control capabilities across all of its Internet properties — the “Crunch Network” of technology-focused sites offering a wide range of content and new media.

“Our tech-savvy audience demands fast, uninterrupted response to breaking news, and consistently great performance on every visit to any TechCrunch network site,” said Heather Harde, CEO of TechCrunch. “That’s why we have implemented Cotendo’s CDN services — they deliver the improved performance and scalability that ensure an exceptional experience for our audience.”

TechCrunch is using two key applications of Cotendo’s content delivery applications suite, which is based on patent-pending software technology: Cotendo Content Delivery improves the static content delivery — including images and Javascript — of TechCrunch’s entire web presence, while Cotendo RT Reports gives TechCrunch decisionmakers actionable, real-time data on their traffic and audience. “We went live with Cotendo’s CDN in May and we have been impressed with the consistent performance and real-time management tools — exactly our motivation for implementing a CDN,” said Harde.

“We are pleased to have TechCrunch in our customer ranks,” said Ronni Zehavi, Cotendo’s CEO. “They are an industry pioneer and leader, and we look forward to supporting their growth as an Internet presence making a cultural and commercial impact on the new Web space.”
