LONDON -- OnApp has announced that its federated CDN platform for service providers, OnApp CDN, has grown to 60 global locations in just six months and is now more than twice the size of Amazon CloudFront. OnApp CDN was launched to existing OnApp customers in Q4 2011. It is now available to providers around the world, who can get started at http://onapp.com/cdn.

OnApp CDN enables any service provider to build an instant global CDN without investing millions in their own global infrastructure, or having to resell traditional third party CDNs at wafer-thin margins. It achieves this by connecting cloud providers in a federated global marketplace, where each provider can buy and sell CDN bandwidth on demand. The marketplace allows service providers to sell their spare capacity and expand their cloud services instantly through CDN PoPs (Points of Presence) across the U.S., Europe and Asia-Pacific.

“OnApp’s federated CDN model keeps costs low for us, because we can use OnApp’s CDN marketplace to expand instantly into places we don’t have our own infrastructure,” said Zdenek Cendra, CEO of Cloudee. “That means we can keep costs low for our customers, while still giving them access to a high-quality network of PoPs. And, at the same time, we can use the marketplace to sell spare capacity in our own datacenters, so we can maximize revenue from our own infrastructure investments. We’ve had very strong early take-up, including companies like Geewa, a top Facebook game developer, which is switching to our CDN service from Amazon CloudFront.”
