Giving Video a Boost
If there ever was a technology that could take advantage of content caching on demand it's video. With high quality video becoming cheaper to produce, and a proliferation of devices available with which to create it, websites and networks are being inundated with video.
Even social networks like Twitter and Instagram have recently gotten into the video game with popular apps like Vine and Video on Instagram. These are examples of very lightweight video applications, but for longer and higher quality videos, the files get larger, and download times begin to drag.
That's especially true on mobile devices, and because many people around the world use smartphones as their primary Internet access point, this CDN.net and Wowza partnership makes a ton of sense.
