Limelight Networks, a content delivery network for digital media, has been selected as the exclusive network provider to deliver video content for all 17 of Dailymotion’s growing portfolio of localized, country-specific online portals.
Dailymotion, an independent video sharing site, needed a trusted partner that could help support its in-house content distribution infrastructure. Dailymotion has been experiencing exponential growth, in terms of site traffic, content volume and general brand awareness. In June 2007, Dailymotion drew 37.6 million users who viewed a total of 715 million online videos.
Stephane Enten, vice president of engineering at Dailymotion, said: Limelight Networks is a great addition to our delivery infrastructure as it allows our users to access our content faster and with better reliability. Limelight Networks has not only the global reach and capacity our sites demand, but also flexibility and a deep understanding of our needs.
