DAZN is a live and on-demand sports streaming service owned by Perform Group, the digital leader in global sports media. It’s the world’s first pure sport streaming service, providing millions of fans unlimited access to watch the widest array of live and on-demand sports on virtually any internet-connected device. DAZN features more than 15,000 sporting events a year from major to minor competitions including soccer, basketball, baseball, tennis, rugby, motorsports, boxing and more.
When DAZN scored a 10-year exclusive contract with the J. League, Japan’s leading professional soccer league, extensive modeling showed they would soon max out server capacity in the region. To ensure high quality streaming, handle increasing viewers, and be ready for further international expansion they began looking to add another content delivery network (CDN).
