LONDON, Nov. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Germany-based online casino solutions provider, edict egaming, has slashed bandwidth costs in the Isle of Man by around 44% by using the CDNetworks Content Delivery Network. Since implementing CDNetworks in just eight weeks, edict egaming has realized impressive savings and now requires only 16% of the original data volume for the technical operation of its platforms.
For Patrick Meid, Head of Technical Operations at edict egaming, the benefits of CDNetworks' Content Acceleration have made an important contribution to competitiveness: "Bandwidth usage on the Isle of Man accounts for a major part of our operating costs. Our collaboration with CDNetworks has given us a great deal more flexibility on the market. The most positive surprise has been the rapid implementation of the system, which has blended seamlessly with our existing infrastructure."
Bandwidth usage costs in the British Isles are significantly higher than the international average. Preferential flat rates for B2B customers are hard to find – on the contrary local Internet providers bill for every megabyte transmitted. On top of that, existing data transmission capacity is often stretched to its limit, especially during peak hours.
The implementation of the Content Acceleration solution provided a remedy. Instead of reloading frequently used content such as images or CSS files from the server, content delivery networks keep these elements in a cache, thus reducing costly storage capacity.
In order to find the right partner for the implementation, edict chose the three most promising of ten providers for a comparative test. From this trial run, one company emerged as a clear winner: CDNetworks, one of the world's leading content delivery network providers. The company won over decision-makers at edict egaming with its excellent system performance, fast and flexible support and especially with its significant reduction in data volume.
