Partners Double Team Edge Applications

Limelight Networks and Linode are collaborating to provide cloud computing capabilities as part of Limelight’s edge cloud. The partners are enabling businesses to grow global online presence by improving application performance and accessibility around the world.


Limelight’s edge cloud eliminates delays inherent in using traditional cloud computing environments for low latency IoT and real-time applications by moving processing power from centralized locations to the network edge. Users can provision compute, storage, and load-balancing capabilities on-demand, across Limelight’s globally distributed edge locations to quickly deploy and scale their workflows. It also offers the scale and reach needed to reduce the distance between sources of data and the network edge. Limelight’s QoS-enabled high-speed private network provides secure connectivity between more than 80 Points of Presence (PoPs), covering every region of the world with connections to more than 900 ISPs.
