The New “Clouds Within Clouds” Model From MetaCDN.com Offers Start-ups and Small-to-Medium Sized Businesses an Unparalleled Level of Flexibility, Agility, and Stability

November 28, 2012

LONDON, November 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ –

The MetaCDN.com [http://metacdn.com ] content delivery network pulls together existing
cloud devices into one single network to provide simple, cheap and reliable cloud delivery
services. It allows for global content distribution where more traditional models have not
been able to.

Jeff Weiner, CEO of LinkedIn, said that such cloud technology “makes it easier and
cheaper than ever for anyone anywhere to be an entrepreneur and to have access to all the
best infrastructure of innovation.” Startups shouldn’t have to worry about why users can’t
access their site or why the load time is slow. MetaCDN.com provides seamless integration
of multiple distributed service providers allow entrepreneurs to stop playing server admin
and focus on their business.”

Traditional web sites deliver files from a single server location, which works well
when users are all close to the server. Problems arise when site users in Australia
attempt to view a website with a server in New York – the distance makes the site load
slowly. To combat the delay services have sprung up to store and deliver content from
dozens of places across the globe.

Content can be delivered from about 30 locations around the globe, they cannot be
everywhere. Some providers lack servers in areas of online growth, such as Central/South
America, Asia, and Africa. Meanwhile, local CDNs serve Asia, but provide limited service
to foreigners.

MetaCDN.com provide a solution to this problem through multiple devices. For example,
recent Amazon outages

have shut down
popular sites like Netflix, Instagram, Pinterest, Reddit, Imgur, but when MetaCDN detected
the outage for their clients, users were re-routed to backup networks without anyone
noticing.
