Regional Development Teams
Distributed teams involved in the creation and testing of new software who need to share files.
Storage that is maintained remotely and accessible over long-distance public or private networks.
To ingest is to upload digital content into a CDN via any of many formats.
Origin is the location where content to be delivered is hosted. It could be positioned near users within the CDN storage infrastructure or at the CDN customers location.
A file manager is a system used for tracking the most current files and archiving less popular files.
Software and Web Objects
Software files, applications, application icons, etc.
User feedback is provided by software testers and can be in the form of comments, suggestions, or improvements provided by software testers.
Beta Software Website
A beta software website is where approved beta software testers can download a trial version of software.
An edge server is one of thousands of servers running our EdgePrism software that is placed on the edge of the network to handle local requests faster and lower response times.
Video on Demand (VOD)
Video on Demand is unscheduled programming that can be accessed via over-the-top (OTT) services, cable TV networks, or online—usually through a subscription service.
Edge Server with Token
Edge servers with the ability to transmit or decode tokenized requests play a role in authenticating users and providing access to content. The edge server holds a token that the client must match before authentication is granted.
Tokenization is a system that protects sensitive data by replacing it with an assigned random number—or “token”.
Software Files and Cache
Software Files - Software files are one or more files making up a new release of software.
Cache - High-speed memory storage distributed on a CDN and used for frequently requested files.
SmartPurge is a unique Limelight feature that removes selected content, globally, from the CDN edge caches in seconds.
A purge request is a request for all copies of specific content to be eliminated across all edge cache locations on a CDN.
Data collected through analytics provides a detailed view on overall traffic levels and download requests for software and firmware files.
Accelerated Download Portal
An accelerated download portal is a website that is used exclusively for requesting and downloading files and has been optimized for speed and responsiveness.
There is a growing diversity of user devices and content delivery protocols. When delivering content to users, detection of their device type and sending content in the correct format to virtually all devices is critical. Multi-device delivery is the ability to deliver files and media content to mobile, desktop, and server-based devices.
A Distributed Denial of Service attack is a malicious effort to slow down or incapacitate a website by overwhelming it with traffic and causing it to crash or operate very slowly. Attackers use large armies of automated "bots"—computers that have been infected with malware and can be remotely controlled by hackers—to create DDoS attacks on a very large scale.
