CDN Performance Report

Description

Need help determining the best CDN for your userbase? This report summarizes the throughput and latency measurements collected from our cloud speedtest. We pay approximately 1000 users to run this test monthly using Amazon's Mechanical Turk global workforce.

We use the MaxMind GeoIP databases to track the users location (city, state, country) and netspeed (i.e. Cable/DSL, Corporate, Dial-up). The results are grouped into sortable tables by geographical region and netspeed.

Additionally, the report can display the regions and ISPs where a specific CDN performs well and where it performs poorly.

This report is published in both monthly summary and yearly cummulative versions (the yearly cummulative report is not provided for single month purchases). The report data is made available in HTML, JSON and XML format. The report is delivered on the 1st business day of each month for the prior month tests. This report can also be purchased on net 15 terms. Please contact us for more information.

State of the Cloud - DNS Report

Description

This monthly report provides in-depth analysis on managed DNS services. Analysis includes performance and availability metrics, marketshare, news, features and pricing. The report uses a simple, graphically oriented layout designed for both business and technical readers.

Performance analysis is conducted utilizing a combination of both synthetic and end-user test agents. Our synthetic agents consist of approximately 110 servers located globally, while end-user agents are actual users running a custom DNS performance test in their browser. Sythetic performance samples are taken every 5 minutes, while millions of end-user measurements are taken utilizing thousands of unique global users. DNS providers included are Neustar UltraDNS, Dyn, Akamai/Cotendo, AWS Route53, easyDNS and DNSMadeEasy.
