CDN Provider NetDNA Rebrands as MaxCDN Enterprise
This week, CDN provider NetDNA announced it would no longer operate two different brands in the market and will consolidate their NetDNA brand into a new name called MaxCDN Enterprise. This is a smart move by the company as the two brands were causing some confusion amongst customers. With one brand, and now one focus, the company will no longer have to share resources between the brands or decide which one gets the most attention. The company has also launched a new tag line, “Maximum Reliability Minimum Price”, which is a direct aim at Amazon’s CloudFront service.
Max CDN Enterprise offers a self-service platform and like Amazon, lists pricing on their website and targets mid-tier high-volume CDN customers. They don’t charge anything extra for SSL delivery and offers something unique by charging one flat price per GB delivered, no matter the region of delivery. The company says they will continue to offer smaller CDN packages to startups and growing companies without a minimum usage commitment, but are now focusing their efforts on enterprise customers. The company says their network can handle 250Gbps of traffic and at their current growth rate, will need to double that capacity by 2015.
The company point outs that unlike some of their competitors, their customer support is available via phone, chat or email at any time with an average ticket response time of three minutes. They wouldn’t disclose revenue to me but says they are currently profitable and will end this year with 43 employees.
