Claims to enable content providers to increase performance of global delivery of web sites and applications
Cotendo, a CDN and site acceleration services provider, has enhanced its Unity Platform targeted to web content and application providers.
According to Cotendo, the new services of the Unity Platform 2.0 will improve the ability of online retailers, advertising networks, transactional enterprises, and professional news and data content sites to provide whole site delivery of both static and dynamic content to online customers and site visitors.
The company said that the new site acceleration services offering includes a DSA service Cotendo Dynamic Site Acceleration 2.0 and Cotendo site assure, an integrated smart monitoring and event-driven service for maximising website uptime and service continuity.
Cotendo said that the dynamic site acceleration (DSA) service, which enables content providers to increase the performance of global delivery of dynamic web sites and web applications, supports symmetric model dynamic site acceleration. It adds a first-mile point of presence (POP) near the content provider’s origin for congestion control management of web and eCommerce applications.
The Site Assure is a real-time site monitoring and management service, which combined with the DNS service, ensures content providers business continuity. It notifies the company’s advanced DNS to automatically route the traffic to another destination in the event of a server failure, Cotendo said.
The company said that Site Assure also enables the creation of customised rules that define static and dynamic routing polices such as failover and balance routing. It provides real-time reports on the performance of the infrastructure.
Ronni Zehavi, CEO of Cotendo, said: With the Cotendo Unity Platform 2.0, we have expanded our site acceleration suite to provide a full range of whole site acceleration services that deliver outstanding performance, control, agility and visibility. This integrated platform also lays the foundation for continuing innovation going forward, including enhancements such as the latest version of our Dynamic Site Acceleration service and new value-added services like Cotendo Site Assure.”
