New CDN PoPs: Ashburn & Atlanta

We're happy to announce that our network across the United States continues to grow and today we've enabled two new points of presence in Atlanta and Ashburn. This makes PUSHR CDN one of the fastest video, live streaming and Software delivery CDNs across the south-eastern coast of North America with average latency of just 8ms for the whole perimeter from Montreal in Canada to Miami in Florida and the dedicated capacity to match.

Introducing Anycast DNS

We are happy to announce that after a month of testing, two weeks ago we've silently released our anycast DNS to all customers. Anycast is a routing method in which a single destination address is routed to multiple endpoint addresses. The shortest network path between the client and the server is being used automatically to ensure low latency and fast connectivity, and in the event of a failure of one or more endpoints, the algorithm will exclude them from the mix, redirecting all requests to the healthy ones. Just like our failover system system does for PUSHR CDN's edge network.

Introducing sub-second cache purge

One of the main ways for a content delivery network to accelerate a piece of content is to cache it on an edge server in close proximity to the visitor. Once cached (usually after the first request) the content is served to all visitors at high speed, without the need to contact the origin, which may be physically located in a distant country or even on another continent. This greatly accelerates the rate at which visitors can fetch a copy of your content and it also allows you to scale seamlessly since all the load from the origin is shifted to the CDN.

New PoPs: Madrid, Miami and Singapore

We are happy to announce 3 new data centres in North America, South Europe and Asia! These new locations make for a total of 12 non-federated, bare-metal points of presence with guaranteed bandwidth and dedicated edge cache on our network.

10 myths about content delivery networks

As a content delivery network with 24/7 live chat for support and pre-sales questions, we are in constant communication with webmasters, small business owners and startups about their needs, expectations, and requirements. Like we've already mentioned in our previous blog post, Which CDN is best?, a great amount of the people we speak to are aware that they need a CDN but don't necessarily have the time to dive deep into the technical aspects of the service to understand its functions better. We've reviewed our chat history and identified the most frequent misconceptions about content delivery networks.

Here is your short crash course with the top 10 myths about CDN services.

Which CDN is best?

Content delivery networks are anything but new and yet for 99% of the website & service owners choosing the right one is usually troublesome. Here are a few tips on how to select the best CDN for your project.

New PoP in Canada!

We are happy to announce the availability of our new high-bandwidth point of presense in Beauharnois, Quebec, Canada.
