ICONZ launches CDN service
Posted on 21-Jun-2011 13:10 | Tags Filed under: News

ICONZ has enhanced its service offering that will appeal to web site hosting companies and users with the launch of a very competitively priced global CDN network that eliminates the hop, skip and jump approach to data sharing between a New Zealand hosted website and a customer somewhere else in the world.

“In today’s competitive internet environment, customers won’t wait for more than a few seconds for a website to load before clicking away to another site. The ICONZ content delivery network (CDN) improves your user’s experience with faster load times, high-quality video and audio downloads and increased reliability,” says ICONZ Chief Executive, Sean McDonald.

The new Content Delivery Network, with nodes in 13 countries, increases efficiency and download speed by enabling content to be accessed from the server geographically closest to the end user. CDN overcomes bandwidth, CPU, and processing bottlenecks as popular or frequently requested data can be intelligently delivered to the end user in the most efficient way.

“The fewer the hops, the faster the delivery. It’s that simple,” Mr McDonald says. “Client web content will be cached offshore from the moment the first user hits their site here in New Zealand. It brings the website closer to the end user and is great for anyone who does business on the web and needs to provide uninterrupted, fast access.”

Mr McDonald says the new service is particularly timely given that traffic to NZ sites is running consistently higher because of Rugby World Cup interest.

“This service can reduce costs and provide a better user experience, eliminating congestion frustrations from popular sites and removing international traffic costs of website owners and website hosts full stop. “

Users also have the choice of setting up their website to only partially run off CDN with dynamic parts of the site being served directly from the New Zealand-based host - an important consideration in data sovereignty, he said.
ICONZ, the mid-sized, New Zealand owned managed hosting and business connectivity provider, owns its own international servers.

“Our prices are considerably lower than other competitors and there is no need to be an ICONZ client to purchase our CDN service,” Mr McDonald said. “It’s an easy to use and implement content delivery solution that has been designed for wide application not just high-end web developers and programmers. All you need is a URL and with your images, Javascript, audio and video files and other static content cached on the ICONZ global network your website will run faster for your users. This is one short cut you can take. ”
