LONDON -- Limelight Networks (Nasdaq: LLNW), the leading content delivery network (CDN) for digital media, announced today that it has been selected as the exclusive CDN provider to deliver video content for all 17 of Dailymotion's growing portfolio of localised, country-specific online portals. Dailymotion, the first independent video sharing site, needed a trusted partner that could help support its in-house content distribution infrastructure. Dailymotion has been experiencing exponential growth, in terms of site traffic, content volume and general brand awareness. In June 2007, Dailymotion drew 37.6 million users who viewed a total of 715 million online videos.

"Limelight Networks is a great addition to our delivery infrastructure as it allows our users to access our content faster and with better reliability," said Stephane Enten, vice president of engineering at Dailymotion. "Limelight Networks has not only the global reach and capacity our sites demand, but also flexibility and a deep understanding of our needs."

Dailymotion provides global delivery of localised, high-quality video content to more than 37 million unique users worldwide. Dailymotion's service is architected to accommodate video files of up to 150 MB in size and 20 minutes in length, enabling the delivery of richer, more extensive media content. Consumers are able to browse files by tags, channels, or user-created groups to further enhance the video sharing and viewing experience.

"Dailymotion's core audience is made up of users creating and leveraging videos in order to connect with others around the world with like interests," said George Meek, vice president for Europe at Limelight Networks. "Limelight Networks' scalable CDN enables Dailymotion to offer its members a truly unique, rich and interactive media experience on the Internet, while at the same time maintaining performance levels as traffic, video file size and content collections increase."
