Networks, Inc., (“Limelight”) (Nasdaq:LLNW) a global leader
in digital content delivery, announced today that StreamOn has deployed
the Limelight OrchestrateTM (“Orchestrate”) Content Delivery
and Cloud Storage platform.
StreamOn, an Edmonton, Canada based company, provides radio broadcasters
with the tools and technology to grow their online audiences through
social media. The audio live streaming company will use the Orchestrate
platform to enable their customers to reliably stream audio broadcasts
with low latency on StreamOn’s servers.
“StreamOn serves a demanding set of radio broadcasters around the world.
Even the slightest decrease in performance or availability might affect
its reputation and brand,” said Kirby Wadsworth, chief marketing officer
The StreamOn appliance requires dependable connectivity to 300+ customer
radio stations throughout Canada, the United States, and other parts of
the world. StreamOn’s Listen Later service allows radio stations
to serve both live and on-demand audiences, resulting in potential
additional revenue, and new requirements for flawless content delivery.
“Our online streaming must be ‘FM-quality’ – anything less is
unacceptable. It is also not acceptable for our radio broadcast
customers to go offline, so we needed to be assured that the solution we
chose was highly reliable,” said Andrew Snook, chief technology officer
StreamOn selected the Limelight Orchestrate platform to ensure reduced
downtime, significantly lower latency, and the highest quality delivery,
through the world’s fastest and most reliable content delivery platform.
With Limelight, StreamOn can now deliver broadcast quality audio content
to any device, anywhere on the planet. StreamOn joins a growing list of
audio streaming and broadcast industry leaders across the globe that
have each chosen the Orchestrate platform to ensure reliability,
consistency, and the highest quality content delivery.
“Limelight exceeded all of our criteria and we are very pleased with the
result,” continued Snook. “We’ve substantially increased our uptime by
using Limelight, and by using their Cloud Storage service we are seeing
our content available 30 seconds quicker than with our previous vendor.
In the radio business, this is significant.”
“We are excited to be working with StreamOn, one of Canada’s leading
streaming companies, to help them better engage their global online
audiences. Reliability and performance are hallmarks of Limelight’s
broadcast-quality platform and services, and we look forward to a long
and successful relationship,” continued Wadsworth.
Earlier this month, Limelight announced that it will showcase its
solutions portfolio for broadcast and video companies at the
International Broadcasting Convention, IBC
2014 in Amsterdam next month. The Limelight OrchestrateTM
platform helps ensure the global delivery of broadcast quality digital
content to online audience on any device. Visitors to the show can
discuss their challenges and explore with Limelight experts, while
viewing demonstrations of broadcast workflows at stand 3.B15 in Hall 3.
Limelight Networks (NASDAQ: LLNW), a global leader in digital content
delivery, empowers customers to better engage digital audiences by
enabling them to manage and deliver digital content on any device,
anywhere in the world. The company’s award winning Limelight
Orchestrate™ platform includes an integrated suite of content delivery

the Caribbean, Africa, and the South Pacific.
While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input. In order to actively drive cultural evolution, organizations must make substantial organizational and process changes, and adopt new technologies, to encourage a DevOps culture.

Continuous delivery models further squeeze traditional notions of quality. Remember the venerable project management Iron Triangle? Among time, scope, and cost, you can only fix two or quality will suffer.
Only in today's DevOps world, continuous testing, integration, and deployment upend...
