Highwinds, a global content delivery network (CDN) provider, has chosen CenturyLink to help the company continue optimizing its global content delivery platform.
In a statement, the company said businesses worldwide depend on Highwinds CDN to stream video, distribute games, serve advertising assets and deliver software, apps and websites.
CenturyLink data center hosting services and network services enable Winter Park, Fla.-based Highwinds to better focus its resources on continued innovation and customer service. Since expanding into two CenturyLink data centers nine months ago, Highwinds has reduced certain hosting costs by nearly 50%.
Highwinds chose CenturyLink for its reliability, security, network diversity and interconnectivity options across a large, established customer base.
“In media, entertainment, gaming and beyond, Highwinds enables users to access content immediately, whether it's a mobile app, online game or rich media,” Jason Griner, VP of carrier relations at Highwinds said.
“We take this commitment seriously, and CenturyLink helps us continue to keep all our customer promises,” the executive said.
Highwinds' global, high-capacity CDN delivers content to millions of end users, all around the world, every day. Highwinds' agile network needs to support clients' sustained growth, plus handle huge traffic spikes during game releases, when videos go viral, and on major online shopping days.
