NOVI, Mich. (June 15, 2011) – Future Hosting, an Internet solutions provider serving SMBs and enterprises internationally and developer of Future Engineer™, today added several key features to its international Cloud Delivery Network (CDN), which it launched just last month.
With the new features, customers can now host individual files in the CDN, which can be uploaded through a new Web interface or through FTP. Previously, the CDN only allowed customers to have the CDN pull files from the customer server and not upload files directly to each POP in the CDN.
In addition, these individual files can be stored with POP Pull on the CDN, in contrast to Origin Pull. In a traditional Origin Pull configuration, website files are temporarily copied to the CDN from an origin server when they are first accessed by a user. The files are purged from the CDN usually within 24 hours of access. In a POP Pull configuration, however, files are stored permanently on the CDN. This allows for faster performance, improved reliability, and reduced strain on client servers.
Through partnerships with upstream providers, Future Hosting’s CDN offers a physical presence in North America, Europe, Asia, South America, and Australia, and additional locations are planned, including in the Middle East. This unrivaled connectivity allows for low-latency, high throughput file transfers worldwide, and delivers failover protection and instant scalability.
“After nearly a month in operation, our CDN has proven itself to be an asset to our customers and our company. We are able to provide mission-critical content delivery services to our international customers who require low-latency, high-bandwidth access to important data in cities around the world. Nothing meets that need better than the Cloud,” said Future Hosting Chief Technical Officer Nick Zyren.
Both existing and new Future Hosting clients can add CDN-capability to their account. Individuals can contact Future Hosting’s sales department to learn more about the service. Additional details are available at http://www.futurehosting.com/web-hosting/cloud-delivery-network-cdn.
