FlexiMart enables web hosts to share infrastructure by allowing them to buy, sell and trade capacity, in real time and on the fly, both at a fixed price and via auction-like bidding. Aflexi enables CDNs, content providers and web hosting service providers to merge and expand networks as needed.
“Why pay for infrastructure that is only needed for a fraction of the time?” asks Whei Wong, CEO of Aflexi. “Aflexi provides a platform for web hosts to trade excess capacity, resulting in a win-win situation. There is no need to pay big CDNs their exorbitant rates when you can get all the bandwidth and POPs you need from other CDN operators (within the Aflexi Ecosystem).”
Web hosts and CDNs can market their unused bandwidth while oversubscribed networks can quickly and cost-effectively expand as needed to meet sudden demand surges.
FlexiMart also includes a powerful search engine, which enables regional bandwidth searching that can be narrowed down to “All Time” and “Off Peak Only” traffic. Using this system, one can quickly discover all available bandwidth within specific regions offered by different CDN Operators. This allows buyers to enhance traffic performance at desired locations and time period by purchasing region-specific bandwidth instead of global bandwidth.
“We plan to add many more features to FlexiMart,” added Whei Wong. “One of our current projects involves system intelligence where the system will forecast, negotiate and eventually suggest the right deal to the buyer/seller.”

Aflexi develops and provides content delivery solutions for ISPs and content distributors worldwide. The Aflexi CDN software optimizes website traffic across various ISPs and their POPs. The intelligent Aflexi back-end system scrutinizes traffic patterns and visitor profiles, and can make the necessary adjustments in real time to ensure the highest possible delivery speeds and data quality. If a specific server or network becomes overloaded, the Aflexi system automatically reroutes incoming and outgoing traffic to the next available ISP, server or POP.
