(The Hosting News) – Cloud infrastructure provider Joyent recently teamed up with app performance company Riverbed Technology to launch a “Content Delivery Cloud,” something the two described as an alternative to content delivery networks.
“Building on our partnership with Riverbed, the Riverbed Stingray & Joyent CDC is a prime example of helping customers come up with more cost effective cloud solutions through innovation,” commented Joyent CEO Henry Wasik through a press release.
Wasik also pointed out factors including “better performance” and “lower costs” as something traditional CDNs could not provide for.
