Limelight launches upload provider

Limelight Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq: LLNW) has introduced Intelligent Ingest, a unique capability for Limelight Origin Storage that helps customers upload and deliver content better, faster, and more cost-effectively, the company said.

In addition, the company introduced a permanent no-cost access offering for usage of up to 25GB of storage capacity.

Limelight´s new Intelligent Ingest capability simplifies migration of video-on-demand, file distribution, and web, gaming or e-commerce content to Limelight Origin Storage, providing fast content delivery network (CDN) performance and high availability.

It offers customers two modes to determine what content to automatically move and when — based on audience demand and based on a manifest. This automation minimizes the impact on staff time while ensuring cost-effective use of cloud resources. All content can be migrated, or just a select portion, without interruption to workflows.

To allow customers to experience the benefits of Intelligent Ingest and Origin Storage, Limelight is giving 25GB of free Origin Storage to all new customers, as well as current content delivery customers who do not use Origin Storage.

Limelight Origin Storage is a distributed object-based storage system, which is tightly integrated with the Limelight private CDN and optimized for superior content delivery.

Limelight Networks, a global leader in digital content delivery, empowers customers to better engage online audiences by enabling them to securely manage and globally deliver digital content, on any device. The company´s award winning Limelight Orchestrate platform includes an integrated suite of content delivery technology and services that helps organizations secure digital content, deliver exceptional multi-screen experiences, improve brand awareness, drive revenue, and enhance customer relationships — all while reducing costs.
