Detailed Description

Update

EdgeCast is a content delivery network (CDN) that helps companies accelerate and deliver static and dynamic content to end users around the world. It has since evolved into a full-service web performance company, with the recent launch of front-end optimization, DNS, and eCommerce CDN products.

Major customers include Yahoo!, Tumblr, Pinterest, Twitter, Wordpress, and Hulu. The company has about 6,000 customers (as of October 2013) and carries approximately 6% of the world’s Internet traffic.

Deloitte recently ranked EdgeCast as the #1 fastest-growing Internet company in America, and the #1 fastest-growing Los Angeles company in their 2012 "Fast 500" list.
