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

The cloud. Like a comic book superhero, there seems to be no problem it can’t fix or cost it can’t slash.

Taking some practical and sensible steps to reduce risk can also help provide a basis for a successful cloud transition.
A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Y...

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation.

I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.
