Cache

Wildcard purge now available to push and pull zones

We are happy to announce that PUSHR's cache purge feature has now been extended to support wildcard purging. With wildcards it is now possible to purge entire directories, as well as files which contain a given string in their name.

Wildcards work both from the purge function inside your CDN zone's control panel, as well as via our cache purge API. We will be updating our knowledge base to document this new functionality in the following days. 

To use wildcard purge, simply add an * at the end of the URL, and PUSHR will match all files, or will purge the cache of the entire directory:

Purge entire directory from CDN cache

The above example will purge every file that is cached under the https://cdn.example.com/images/ path.

Wildcard purge by name from CDN cache

The above example will purge all files that have a name starting with the string car :

https://cdn.example.com/images/car1.jpg
https://cdn.example.com/images/car2.jpg
https://cdn.example.com/images/car_for_sale.png
https://cdn.example.com/images/car_design.gif

API

PUSHR's CDN API v2 is live!

After a month of testing we are happy to open up the second iteration of our API to all customers. It is stronger, faster and easier to use, and we're launching it with the basic content management functions first: file uploads to our push storage, uploads to your dedicated video transcoding nodes, content deletion and cache purge & prefetch. Zone statistics, full zone control and video workflow automation are all set to be launched by mid-November.

A new, faster PUSHR CDN website.

We've been receiving some criticism for some time regarding our website being slow which, let's be honest, is not a great self-advertising for a CDN service. PUSHR CDN does not advertise website acceleration at all among the services that we offer as that is not our specialty, and our website was not accelerated by our CDN. Since a redesign was due, we've decided to host the new website directly on our CDN network and see where this goes in terms of speed, especially compared to other CDN services that claim to specialise in website acceleration.
