Good rules engine, efficient and performs well, and provides a staging environment for testing

What is our primary use case?

I manage CDN configurations for my customers. We use this solution to ensure availability and performance for all of the websites we manage. We are able to accelerate websites all around the world while they are hosted in a single location. We are a partner of Verizon Edgecast and we resell Verizon Edgecast CDN to our customers. We plan the right configuration for their needs after we learn about their business, and we advise them of which features would be good for them to use. Following this, we do the complete CDN configuration, new releases, maintenance, etc.

Pros and Cons

  • "The Rules Engine V4 is the most valuable feature."
  • "The web interface of the Verizon Edgecast portal is very old. It's not user-friendly, slow, and it is missing some valuable features like the ability to make bulk changes."

What other advice do I have?

I recommend this solution because, for me, it's one of the most efficient and performant CDN operators. The web interface is old but the delivered service is very good.

Easy to use, integrates with and loads your websites in seconds, and the support is good

What is our primary use case?

Our web servers are leveraging it. We park our assets with Verizon EdgeCast, but the actual dynamic feature is on our site. People are still calling back to our sites, but our assets are cashed with the CDN.

Pros and Cons

  • "It's super easy to use and integrate with."
  • "In the next release, I would like to see more global endpoints for their CDN and a lower price."

What other advice do I have?

It's a phenomenal product, but it comes down to price. Cloudflare is substantially cheaper, which is one of the reasons that people chose it. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
