Unicorn Picks Akamai

4:45 PM -- Today on Contentinople:

  • Unicorn Media has selected Akamai as its preferred provider of content delivery network services, which is no surprise when you consider that many others -- VMIX Media, Kit Digital, Ooyala, and Delve Networks -- have all done same recently... Until you remember that Unicorn's CEO, Bill Rinehart, was a founder of Akamai archrival Limelight.

  • Contentinople publisher Scott Raynovich catches us up on what’s happening in media and media tech stocks and explains what these prices say about the market now.

And in today's News Bits, Twitter, Facebook, and other sites were crippled by a massive denial-of-service attack yesterday.

re: Unicorn Picks Akamai

Like many other companies in the online video management space,Unicorn Media Inc. has chosen Akamai Technologies Inc. (Nasdaq: AKAM) as its preferred provider of content delivery network (CDN) services.
Unicorn Media’s selection might not be that surprising, given the number of online video platforms that are now riding Akamai’s rails. Over the past several months, VMIX Media Inc., Kit Digital, Ooyala Inc., and Delve Networks have all announced partnerships to make Akamai their preferred CDN.
And given the fact that UMedia has just started bringing in its own revenues, the news that the company is driving incremental traffic to Akamai as a channel partner probably isn’t that exciting. With the new partnership, I think, it is all right that the employer will treat the employees to go to Miami.
