White Paper: Limelight Networks
As businesses continue to expand their online reach globally, individual user experience is one of the most important factors for building audience satisfaction and driving revenue. But whether you are delivering videos, web content or even files, ensuring engaging online experiences from an increasing variety of devices around the world, is a huge challenge.
Organizations have a number of methods for improving user experiences, one of which is leveraging a content delivery network (CDN). But not all CDNs deliver the same level of service. This guide will provide some tips on how to determine what is most important to your organization and how to choose a CDN that meets your needs.
In this whitepaper you will learn:
■ What to consider when evaluating content delivery solutions
■ Why speed alone isn’t an accurate measure of performance
■ How to decide what is most important to your organization
Hyper Converged Infrastructures (HCI) brings non-disruptive scaling, reduced complexity, and other benefits, but it requires a stronger data-protection strategy because hyper convergence brings new vulnerabilities. Hyper converged systems are a perfect target-one unique system to encrypt with a built-in replication to spread the malware. For smaller companies with relatively few virtual machines (VMs), a Hyper Converged Infrastructure solution may be the only architecture their data center needs, providing the ultimate simplification. Some critical applications can also be hosted on an HCI, but designing an HCI to meet performance service-level agreements (SLAs) might be challenging compared to designing a more traditional infrastructure. This whitepaper provides insights on data protection basics and its role in Hyper Converged Infrastructure projects. It also explains about how designing an HCI to meet performance service-level agreements (SLAs) might be challenging.

What is Network ?
Network is a group of two or more computing devices enabled to exchanging data with each other (such as files or messages, printers and other shared peripherals) through a data link. The connections between these devices can be established by means of a cable or wireless media. The computers or devices on a network are called as nodes and the ones that allocate resources are broadly categorized as servers or workstations.
What is networking ?
Networking is the process of establishing a connection between the computers on a network. The sole purpose of networking is sharing the information as fast as possible. The first step towards understanding networking is how it operates and how do we use switches, routers and access points to perform functions in a network. TCP/IP or Internet Protocol suite is the foundation of all modern networking, which offers connection-less as well as connection-oriented services
What is CDN ?
Content Delivery Network is a collection of the group of computers or servers or hardware components that are virtually connected and distributed on a global network. It is a transparent backbone of Internet with an ultimate goal to deliver content with high availability and performance. CDNs are everywhere and used by everyone on daily basis; while reading articles on websites, watching videos on YouTube channels, and reading news feeds from social media networks.
