Singapore and Moscow are now part of our standard network tier!

I am happy to announce that all PUSHR CDN customers now have access to our points of presence in Moscow and Singapore! This makes PUSHR the only CDN to provide premium connectivity in CIS and among the very few with a POP in central Asia at no extra cost. 

4 new PoPs: Seattle, Istanbul, Budapest and Copenhagen are live

We're kicking off the weekend with the addition of 4 new PoPs to our constantly evolving network. Seattle, Istanbul, Budapest and Copenhagen are live.

At the core of what we do is to provide the technology and toolset to enable entrepreneurs, startups and small businesses to rapidly expand their reach and deliver video, live media and static content smoothly to their customers. The backbone of this technology is our CDN network, and we are happy to announce it has grown by another four points of presence today. These new additions are enabled by default for all PUSHR customers as part of our balanced network tier, and come at no additional cost. 

CDN

Our blog is now static. Here is why you should consider going static too.

As you may have noticed, we've recently redesigned our blog. The old design was starting to show it's age and was based on a centralized system (Grav), which meant that it was running on a host somewhere, partially proxied via PUSHR CDN. This host had to have PHP running on it and also acted as a single point of failure. If it did go down for some reason, our blog would not be accessible and publishing a new post would not be possible until the issue is fixed. But apart from high availability we also like speed. We've wanted our blog to run entirely on our edge network just like our website does in order to make sure it loads fast everywhere, 24/7. 

Luckily, we already had the right tool for the job: Publii.

New CDN PoPs: Chicago and Moscow

We are very happy to announce that our network now boosts 21 points of presence around the world. Our newest CDN PoPs are in Chicago and Moscow, and provide drastic improvements in both latency and bandwidth across North America and Russia.

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.

New PoP: Sofia, Bulgaria

The 19th point of presence in our network is Sofia, Bulgaria. Our hometown PoP brings live streaming, Video on Demand and static content delivery capabilities to one of the hottest start up hubs in east Europe from the state-of-the-art Telepoint data center.

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.
