Hostway's CDN Chosen by CTAM to Deliver Fast-Loading Video Clips

Hostway Corporation, the global Web solutions leader, was chosen by the Cable and Telecommunications Association for Marketing (CTAM) to host video clips of the association's Summit 08, held November 9-11 in Boston. Hostway will deliver these clips using its patent-pending content delivery network (CDN), "Edge Caching."

"Hostway is proud to have been selected by CTAM as their CDN solution provider," said John Lee, senior vice president for Hostway. "Our Edge Caching service takes advantage of Hostway's worldwide network of data centers to deliver content over the Internet without the long wait times typically associated with online video."

Edge Caching is a system of servers deployed across four continents that operate together to deliver content via the Internet. When a visitor downloads a CTAM Summit video clip, Edge Caching will select the best servers in terms of proximity and traffic load and rapidly deliver the video to the end-user from those servers. With multiple servers working toward the same goal, Edge Caching drastically reduces the amount of time it takes to deliver the video clips.

"With Hostway's help, CTAM will be able to share the general session programs from Summit 08 with all CTAM members regardless of whether they can attend in person," stated Seth Morrison, senior vice president and general manager of corporate initiatives for CTAM. "We were especially pleased to be able to partner with Hostway, as they have been actively involved with CTAM since 2006."

CTAM Summit 08 will examine how consumer marketers, product developers and managers, and affiliate sales executives can capitalize on fast-changing technology and improve the consumer experience in television, Internet and phone.

Hostway will also have a booth at Summit 08 to present Hostway's wholesale Web services. This integrated platform enables cable and telecom providers to offer a comprehensive menu of privately labeled services, including Web hosting, advanced email, ecommerce, online backup and storage, hosted Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft SharePoint, Fax over Email and Web site design.
