LeaseWeb’s service offerings include dedicated servers/bare metal, colocation services, cloud hosting, content delivery networks, and hybrid solutions for clients. For CDN services, open-source technology is used to keep the costs down, while SSDs (Solid State Drive) improve data handling speeds, both of which are key elements to delivering the best performance.
Being a major player in the CDN landscape, the firm’s services are bolstered with strategically placed SuperPoPs—high volume and high bandwidth service hubs or Point Of Presence—that feature the latest optimization techniques to deliver quick response times. These intelligent PoPs are able to control content behavior, and are backed by robust security features like secure token URLs, geo blocking, whitelisting, and hot-linking protection, all of which is accessible via REST API and leverages a 5Tbps global network. This technology ensures LeaseWeb CDN ranks among the most advanced CDNs currently on the market. The secure and streamlined platform can also be augmented with advanced reporting and analytics services that offer a full view on bandwidth usage, demographics, logs, hit ratios, and other audience-related information to clients.
“Our content delivery solutions focus on innovation and performance at a fraction of the cost of other CDNs”
By taking client feedback into account, LeaseWeb understands the challenges and needs of their clients. This feedback is used to develop solutions that are incorporated in the products LeaseWeb offers. “We also look at what our competition provides and we try to deliver it in a more simple and cost-effective manner,” says Julien Lehmann. The firm’s team of innovators designs and develops the services and security measures that are incorporated into LeaseWeb CDNs offerings.
For the future, LeaseWeb plans on strengthening their presence around the globe by adding infrastructure in Asia and South America to augment their existing networks. The firm also plans to help more clients migrate easily to a hybrid model, enabling the use of LeaseWeb’s cloud services, colocation facilities, and other features simultaneously. On the CDN front, efforts are underway to innovate security services, again at a fraction of the cost of the competition yet with top-of-the-line features.
