Many large companies are evaluating private content delivery networks (CDNs) to securely distribute customised content so that only specific business units, user groups or individuals can gain access to it. From streaming internal corporate communications videos to distributing subscription-based content, the applications supported by private CDNs require consistent, reliable and secure on-demand performance.
Private CDNs require consistent performance between corporate data centres and branch offices, or between businesses and their customers' sites. With Platform Equinix™ and Equinix Performance Hub™ you can increase network bandwidth, reduce latency and lower administrative costs by managing fewer circuits. Performance Hub solutions support high-performance features such as WAN optimisation, load balancing and network peering to help you optimise performance.
Private content delivery requires timely distribution without frequent and frustrating time-outs. By distributing your IT infrastructure and private CDN as Equinix Performance Hub nodes in different regions within Equinix data centres you can provide improve your global customers' QoE.
Private corporate content requires a solid disaster recovery (DR) strategy to ensure reliable availability to end users and customers. Platform Equinix and our Performance Hub architectures enable you to use Equinix's globally distributed data centres to back up and protect content, well away from the primary data centre. As the home of 1,150+ networks, Equinix allows you to choose from multiple network routes for redundancy. Equinix's average global uptime rating of >99.9999% ensures the availability of your most mission-critical corporate content and applications.
Though many private CDNs are built on private network or cloud environments, access to services—such as Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform and Microsoft Azure - that offer access to public clouds allows you to scale your content and applications deliveries to your growing customer base. Platform Equinix and Performance Hub solutions lay the foundation for securely enabling direct access to multiple public cloud providers. By avoiding the congestion of the public Internet, Equinix Cloud Exchange™ connects you to multiple public cloud providers directly and securely, providing new possibilities in hybrid cloud computing.
Before you commit to full-scale private CDN deployment, our Global Solutions Architects can help you test and measure the impact of Performance Hub designs on your implementation in our Solution Validation Centres.™
