Almost lost in the shuffle earlier this week was expansion news from EdgeCast Networks. In addition to some infrastructure upgrades, they've added new nodes in Vienna, Stockholm, and Sao Paolo in response to customer demand, and now claim their infrastructure carries more than 4% of worldwide internet traffic.
EdgeCast is one of the largest remaining CDNs that continues to see itself as just that, i.e. a CDN rather than a broader cloud optimization platform or other newfangled construct. They've spent the year expanding their relationships with carriers, hoping to help power the next stage of the integration of this layer into global networks.
Other enhancements to their network include a new interface for its front-end optimization service, a migration to the Adobe Flash Media Server 5.0, new ingest capabilities in Frankfurt and Hong Kong, and the extension of its real-time statistics app to Android devices.
