It has been an exciting time in the CDN market this year and things are really heating up as the year nears its end. Less than one month after Akamai acquired Velocious Networks to bolster its enterprise CDN efforts, Verizon has announced its acquisition of EdgeCast (disclosure: EdgeCast is one of our customers).
According to our Market Share data, EdgeCast is the 4th most popular CDN company for websites with an Alexa rank of at least 1 million with a market share of 8.5% (only top 10 CDN companies shown – percentage is of total customers of top 10 CDN companies combined):
As you can see, however, when looking at the top 1,000 websites according to Alexa, EdgeCast ranks second with an 7.9% market share:
We would like to congratulate EdgeCast, one of our biggest customers, on their recent acquisition. As the CDN market consolidates, we will continue to analyze market share data and other interesting metrics. If you would like more information on what Datanyze can tell you about content delivery networks and the websites that use them, don’t hesitate to reach out to us!
