ATLANTA – April 28, 2011─ Internap Network Services Corporation (NASDAQ: INAP), a leading provider of intelligent IT Infrastructure services, today announced that over-the-top (OTT) video services platform provider Endavo Media is using its route-optimized Content Delivery Network (CDN) to provide high-performance live and on-demand video streaming services for Endavo Media clients worldwide, including telcos, broadcasters, content providers and ad agencies.
Endavo Media offers an OTT video services platform that lets clients manage, distribute and monetize digital media including live and on-demand video, audio and pictures. As its business with telcos and broadcasters expanded across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA), Endavo began evaluating CDN providers, seeking a global, highly reliable and scalable CDN platform as the primary criteria. Endavo selected Internap’s CDN based on its global, route-optimized Performance IP™ network backed by a 100% uptime guarantee, allowing Endavo to provide its largest telco client in the MENA region, and all of its OTT video platform clients around the world, with the highest levels of performance and availability for video delivery services.
“With the MENA region expected to be one of the fastest growing markets for broadband subscribers, IP traffic and OTT video consumption, we needed a CDN provider that aligned with our strategic business focus and was prepared to deliver maximum reliability and performance for our clients there,” said Paul D Hamm, president and CEO at Endavo Media. “Through our selection process, we found Internap to be unsurpassed in its ability to deliver on these requirements, including a performance-optimized, scalable, global distribution network, with specific capability to support our growing business in the MENA region, as well as other emerging markets that we are targeting. With Internap’s 100% uptime Service Level Agreement, we are confident in our ability to provide unparalleled reliability for our video services platform.”
Internap’s CDN easily converts Endavo Media clients’ video content for delivery across multiple media types and platforms – such as Adobe® Flash® Player, HTTP, Microsoft Silverlight and Apple iPad – and distributes it across a range of end user devices, including TVs, mobile phones, tablets and PCs, at the optimal speed. In addition, Endavo is also using Internap’s colocation services for high-performance storage and access to its digital assets, including its corporate website, videos and content library.
“The customer experience has become a critical battleground for organizations involved in online video delivery,” said Laura Mayo, vice president of business development, CDN, at Internap. “With performance optimization at the core of our intelligent IT Infrastructure offering, including our CDN, Internap is the ideal partner for businesses seeking to deliver on the demanding expectations of customers and end users today.”
