Dell, EdgeCast, Elemental partner on new Content Delivery Network

Dell is partnering with EdgeCast and Elemental Technologies to offer service providers a new content delivery network (CDN).

The Dell Deliver platform is powered by EdgeCast software, Elemental video processing software and Dell hardware. Dell said the product will give service provders a cost-effective way to quickly develop content delivery networks. It also gives Dell a new product in which to showcase its Dell PowerEdge servers.

Dell said the product allows network providers to sell CDN services to the enterprise and also manage the on-demand delivery of video.

"Until now, few content delivery models have been optimized for rich media, and it is hard to find existing technologies equipped to analyze and deliver content efficiently based on the requirements of a multitude of end-user devices," said Laurie Hutto-Hill, GM of Dell's global telecommunications, media and entertainment organization. "Dell Deliver offers flexible and scalable technology with significant cost advantages."

Dell Deliver is available as a fully managed network, or as one managed by a service provider.
