“We originally brought Highwinds in alongside another top-tier CDN we had been using, and it was quickly apparent that Highwinds was outperforming our incumbent. However, our decision to exclusively use Highwinds was based on more than just performance. We have a great relationship, ad-hoc support is always available, and we appreciate their hands-on approach to addressing the evolving dynamics of the ad world.”
– Andrei Dunca, Engineering Manager, Facebook
Highwinds CDN was built to meet the high performance needs of advertisers and ad technology partners. Third-party testing tools consistently prove that it’s the fastest CDN in both response times and throughput. This rapid rate of delivery to any location in the world is particularly important in the ad space, when advertisers have just a split second to grab their target audience’s attention, and for platforms like LiveRail that deliver a substantial amount of ads via real-time bidding transactions.
“After extensive research, we chose Highwinds as the right CDN for Playwire. Our selection was based on quality of service, global reach, reliability, speed and customer support. Highwinds scored extremely well in each of these categories.”
