Just over a year after its launch by web hosting provider LeaseWeb, LeaseWeb CDN is now available for partners to resell. Launched in June 2013, LeaseWeb CDN will be available to partners in selective programs of the LeaseWeb Partner Network.
Through the new reseller offering, LeaseWeb CDN is targeting VARs, IT consultants, web agencies, system integrators and managed service providers.
LeaseWeb CDN was developed in-house and its infrastructure is powered by SSD technology. In October 2013, LeaseWeb expanded its infrastructure significantly in Europe and the US. LeaseWeb CDN uses a smaller number of high performance SuperPOPs, its name for high capacity and performance PoPs.
Most recently, LeaseWeb launched a CDN point of presence in Singapore, furthering its reach in Asia-Pacific and increasing overall CDN capacity by 100Gbps to 500Gbps globally.
As customers demand high performance and fast delivery of content, having the ability to resell a CDN solution with an existing partner makes it easier for service providers to deploy and manage. Other CDN reseller programs include CDNNetworks, Akamai or the federation CDN model from OnApp.
“In line with our reinforced focus on channel development we’ve decided to offer advanced resell functionality to all trusted LeaseWeb Partners,” Julien Lehman, LeaseWeb CDN Manager said.
“Demand for performance and operational agility is exploding, which provides an excellent opportunity for the channel community. The added resell functionality is ideal for providers who want to launch a new service and CDN specialists that are looking for an improved service on more favorable terms,” Lehman said. “Thanks to our RESTful APIs and easy-to-use control panel, it’s also suitable for large corporations that want to consolidate their IT infrastructure and manage content across multiple brands more easily.”
LeaseWeb CDN has SuperPoPs in Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Manassas, San Jose and Singapore. Within a month, LeaseWeb CDN will turn on a SuperPOP in Miami.
