SANTA MONICA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--EdgeCast Networks, the world’s fastest and most reliable content delivery network (CDN), experienced another year of explosive growth in 2012, doubling its revenues and serving more than 2 exabytes of traffic worldwide. The company added more than 2,000 customers and now serves more than 6,000 customers. Leading companies including Twitter, Pinterest, Sony, and Hulu have recently chosen EdgeCast for content delivery and acceleration services.
“Our network, features, customer service, and financial stability have firmly established us as the top CDN contender in the industry.”
Additional EdgeCast achievements in 2012 included:
- Making 2012 its third consecutive year of profitability;
- Integrating Google’s PageSpeed front end optimization (FEO) technology into the edge of its network — an industry first;
- Adding new point of presence (PoP) locations in Vienna, Austria, Stockholm, Sweden, and Sao Paulo, Brazil, to expand the reach and capacity of its global network;
- Being awarded several new patents that bring its licensed and owned patent totals to more than 30;
- Nearly doubling its global employee force to more than 225.
EdgeCast’s growth trajectory was recognized in November when Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500™ named the CDN provider the 13th-fastest growing company in North America, #1 for the Internet sector, and #1 in Southern California. The company was also recognized by telecommunications industry leaders in December at Capacity Magazine’s annual awards as the Best Content Delivery Network provider for 2012.
James Segil, EdgeCast co-founder and president, attributes the company’s substantial revenue growth to the high performance of EdgeCast’s global network that is now responsible for delivering and accelerating about five percent of the world’s Internet traffic.
“EdgeCast continues to be profitable year after year by delivering premium CDN services and advanced acceleration capabilities to the world’s most demanding web sites,” said Segil. “Our network, features, customer service, and financial stability have firmly established us as the top CDN contender in the industry.”
