BelugaCDN, the world’s first fully featured IPv6 Content Delivery Network

Beluga CDN is a new player in the field of content delivery network. The CDN service features a dual stack IPv4 + IPv6 network for both small and large businesses, allowing customers to reach more users.

IPv6 currently accounts for nearly 14% of total Internet traffic, and that number is expected to grow to over 34% by 2020. Furthermore, 90 percent of smartphones and tablets will be IPv6-capable by 2020, up from 60 percent in 2015.

Customers using BelugaCDN’s service will be one step ahead of those using CDN providers who only support the IPv4 protocol by improving their website or application’s performance for IPv6-capable desktop and mobile devices, and becoming early adopters of technology that is driving the future of the Internet.

A “performance matters” story from Akamai

Web performance is one of the crucial parts of an every successful user experience story. To back this up, Rich from Akamai shared a story on the Akamai blog that clearly illustrates the problem that may arrise if the interface simply takes too long to load.

“Years ago when I was the executive in charge of our cash management system at [a top 10 US Bank], I would sometimes listen to customer support calls to hear first-hand the problems they were having. On one call, the woman on the other end of the line was in tears. She was not going to be able to pick up her kids in time at daycare. She was nearly hysterical. 

‘Your system is so slow that it’s taking me forever to process these items. Each screen is taking a long time, and I have 50 of these items to do before I can leave the office. I have no one else that can pick up my kids and I am going to be late. I don’t know what to do.’

“We did what we could to help her at the time, and did the right thing in following up with a nice gift basket. But from that point on, I told our developers that all of our screens had to be under 3 seconds.

‘When we turned on Akamai, we saw an immediate impact on our performance. It was amazing. I spoke with customers afterward, and they asked what we did to our system to speed it up. They noticed!”

“Out of all the things we ever did, and out of all the investments we ever made to improve our user experience, Akamai was by far the easiest thing we did to dramatically improve the user experience.”
