Digital content delivery provider Limelight Networks
has announced it has joined Google Cloud Platform’s CDN Interconnect program. Limelight Networks, which has headquarters in Tempe, Arizona, United States, was established in 2001. The company bills itself as allowing customers to “better engage digital audiences” by enabling them to “optimize and deliver digital content on any device, anywhere in the world”. The move allows Limelight Networks’ customers to leverage Limelight’s network inter-connectivity and CDN capabilities.
Google and Limelight will cooperate on driving “customer success through technical integrations and mutual sales engagements”. Google’s CDN Interconnect program is designed to allow selected CDN providers to establish direct links at various points in Google’s edge network and is available immediately to Limelight’s customers. When Limelight Networks’ customers egress network traffic from Google Cloud Platform (which includes Google Cloud Storage and Google Compute Engine) through the direct links, they benefit from direct connectivity and “will be billed according to Google Cloud Interconnect pricing”.
“As a global leader in digital content delivery, Limelight is thrilled to be working with Google Cloud Platform to ensure our customers have the performance they require, while taking advantage of their cloud investments,” explained Limelight’s CEO, Robert Lento. “Our network’s global footprint, scalability, and capacity makes us one of the leading Google Cloud CDN Interconnect providers.
