Limelight’s edge cloud eliminates the cost and complexity of utilizing traditional cloud computing environments for content creation. Edge computing instances are embedded in our global backbone of distributed PoPs and provide ready-made access to last-mile providers. Limelight offers flexible compute options, including both virtualized and bare metal compute as well as the ability to deploy custom hardware configurations in Limelight’s global data centers. Limelight’s edge compute services offer the same high performance as the most popular public clouds at considerably lower total cost of ownership.
Limelight offers global virtualized compute capacity that makes it easy to scale and grow as your needs change. Intel processors and SSD storage deliver high-performance for any compute task. Multiple virtual Linux server configurations are available with varying levels of CPU, RAM, storage, and network bandwidth to meet your specific requirements. An easy to use control panel lets you manage and monitor your deployments as well as load-balance or backup your configuration. APIs and a command-line interface are also available to manage your configuration.
Dedicated bare metal servers are available to give you compute power where you need it without having to share resources or deal with hypervisors. Limelight offers an array of hardware configurations featuring Intel and AMD processors with multiple levels of physical cores, RAM, storage, and network bandwidth. Servers can be deployed in as little as seven minutes and managed with powerful APIs and DevOps integrations.
For applications that require specialized compute configurations, Limelight offers the ability to deploy your custom hardware configuration in our global data centers.
