The service includes a detailed assessment of the customer’s website and historic data from the website activity to determine the optimal CDN configuration. Additionally, it includes recommendations to take advantage of CDN technology in the best way possible.

"As the Internet continues to experience significant growth in live and on-demand video and large file distribution, it’s an opportune time for a well-recognized company like Carpathia Hosting to expand its core capabilities and support their customers’ evolving delivery needs with top-tier CDN services," said Steve Miller, President and CEO of Highwinds.
