​Limelight Adds Intelligent Ingest

Customers to get free 25GB of Limelight’s high-performing Origin Storage

Limelight Networks is introducing Intelligent Ingest, which it describes as a unique capability for Limelight Origin Storage that helps customers upload and deliver content better, faster, and more cost-effectively. In addition, the company introduced a permanent no-cost access offering for usage up to 25GB of storage capacity.

“Limelight’s new Intelligent Ingest capability simplifies migration of video-on-demand, file distribution, and web, gaming or e-commerce content to Limelight Origin Storage, providing fast content delivery network (CDN) performance and high availability,” explains said Nigel Burmeister, VP Marketing. “It offers customers two modes to determine what content to automatically move and when -- based on audience demand and based on a manifest. This automation minimizes the impact on staff time while ensuring cost-effective use of cloud resources. All content can be migrated, or just a select portion, without interruption to workflows.”

To allow customers to experience the benefits of Intelligent Ingest and Origin Storage, Limelight is giving 25GB of free Origin Storage to all new customers, and current content delivery customers who do not use Origin Storage.

Limelight Origin Storage is a distributed object-based storage system integrated with the Limelight private CDN.
