Loudr

"We saw issues early on with speed reductions on Amazon S3 - many of our customers (especially our European and Asian fans) were seeing downloads as slow as a dial-up modem (remember those?)! Highwinds provides us with a globally immersive content delivery network, making sure that our customers overseas have the best experience possible. Switching to Highwinds CDN was extremely simple - it was simply a matter of using our S3 storage as the origin for content delivery. This was trivial, and now we have the freedom to migrate our storage elsewhere. Highwinds has amazing, quick and friendly customer support - in addition to having a powerful service and incredibly useful (and easy to navigate) API. Oh, and we save a lot of money. That's always a plus."


Josh Whelchel, CTO, Loudr

"We're pleased to have Highwinds on-board as a partner, both for the expertise they bring to the Launch Crew and because their GDN is the de facto standard for online game delivery. One message we'll preach together is that our developers shouldn't wait until their game is fully developed before considering an online distribution strategy. This partnership puts developers in a position to start that conversation much earlier in the process."


Steve Foley, Co-Founder, GameLaunched

i5labs

"I am certainly impressed with Highwinds' technological advancements. And while their technology rivals that of any other CDN, granting resellers complete control over customer accounts, pricing and billing, and the ability to re-brand the best CDN interface I've ever seen, is what sets Highwinds apart from its competitors. We are private-labeling the CDN and StrikeTracker as 'i5labs CDN by Highwinds,' and customers are responding well to it. In the end, though, business comes down to people, and I trust Highwinds as a business partner."


Jason Wong, CEO, i5labs
