Conduit Accelerates Global Application Delivery With Cotendo and Slashes Infrastructure Costs by 20%

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwire - May 25, 2011) - Cotendo, a fast growing innovative provider of Content Delivery Network (CDN) and Value Added Site Acceleration services, announced today that Conduit, one of the world's largest networks for application publishers, has adopted Cotendo's suite of services as its primary tool for accelerating content delivery and enhancing content management to serve the needs of 260,000 publishers and 230 million users. Conduit quickly deployed the robust suite of services, including Cotendo Content Delivery, Dynamic Site Acceleration (DSA), Advanced DNS (ADNS), CDN Balancer, and built-in real-time management and reporting tools, seamlessly integrated atop Cotendo's industry leading Unity Platform.

With the help of Cotendo's global content delivery and site acceleration network, Conduit has rapidly scaled its services for explosive growth while simultaneously maintaining a capability to handle unexpected traffic bursts and the power to reconfigure its traffic flows and republish content in near real-time, a capability not offered by other CDN providers. The reliability and peerless scalability of Cotendo's network has allowed Conduit to effortlessly expand its offerings without any fears of running into traffic delivery problems.

"We are able to add new services and applications with confidence because Cotendo handles the traffic," said Conduit's Chief Technology Officer Dror Erez. "We can quickly introduce new programs without worrying about performance."

Cotendo's global network and sophisticated traffic management services, such as CDN Load Balancing, Site Assure and Advanced DNS (ADNS), have enabled Conduit to offload on average 70-80% (and for some services up to 90%) of traffic from origin servers. These innovative Cotendo services allow Conduit to balance Web traffic across in-house and multiple CDN services based on the company's business strategy and network optimization needs. Cotendo Site Assure provides 24/7 distributed monitoring of critical IP services and automatic traffic routing failover based on easy-to-define policies determined by the user.

Cotendo's best-in-class reporting tools, combined with flexible traffic and content management services, allow Conduit to see what is happening in the network in real-time and to make changes to traffic routing and network policies effective within minutes.

"Cotendo's Site Assure monitoring service guarantees our service is always up and running," said Erez. "Their Real-Time Reporting gives us instant information on traffic changes caused by new configurations or special promotions. With these tools, we're always on top of the current situation."

Aside from faster content delivery and higher reliability, Cotendo has also saved Conduit considerable outlays through reduced origin server costs and saved staff hours. "We worked closely with Cotendo's team every step of the way to configure the services for maximum effectiveness and efficiency. We felt we had a real partner on our side," said Erez. "And we saved a great deal of money for infrastructure while dramatically improving performance. By working with Cotendo, our engineering team could focus on adding new publisher services, not building a CDN."

"Conduit has some of the world's most technologically-savvy global brand customers. They demand 100% uptime, lightning fast application delivery, up-to-the-minute transparency, and real-time scalability," says Ronni Zehavi, CEO of Cotendo. "We are proud that Conduit has chosen Cotendo as a trusted technology services partner to accelerate the application delivery to these brand name businesses."
