Internet content, including file sharing, conferencing, ad serving, and more, is growing rapidly and moving to the cloud. And corporate users, the SaaS model does away with traditional branch to HQ architectures, requiring a new cloud-centric model that extends to any region or device. At the same time, this data is increasingly user-generated, dynamic, and not suited for traditional content delivery architectures. Yet congestion, poor user experience and costly infrastructure are threatening business models.
To-date, solutions have focused on the physical routing layer, but this is only a band-aid due to the age of Internet routing protocols and the numerous ISPs that traffic must traverse. In the same way that compute and storage have moved to the cloud and taken on a software-centric approach, Teridion is addressing the problem by being the first to do the same with networking.
Teridion’s Global Cloud Network (GCN) offers throughput that is on average 20x more than current public Internet speeds. It is a global routed overlay network leveraging cloud-optimized routing. The Teridion Management System (TMS) maintains a real-time view of global Internet traffic. It leverages this data as well as cost to provision Teridion Cloud Virtual Routers (TCRs) within every major cloud operator, including AliCloud, AWS, Digital Ocean, Google Cloud, IBM Cloud, and NTT. Customer data across the GCN then follows the best possible path, with selection based on throughput, latency, or even geography.
The solution differs from existing Content Delivery Network (CDN) or Software-Defined WAN offerings in that it requires no pre-provisioning of hardware, caches, or links, and Teridion customers require no additional hardware, software, or client changes on their part.
Teridion is a privately held company and is headquartered in San Francisco. For more information, please visit: http://www.teridion.com/.
