The quality of our delivery system, including both severs
and streaming media, is critical to the performance of NetCertification. Our
partnership with Akamai, the leading streaming server company, greatly enhances
the super performance we provide.
Akamai has developed a patented technology for high
reliability and high performance delivery of streams and large binary objects,
i.e. video, software downloads and graphics. They provide 40 redundant DNS
servers with over 4,000 hosting servers located in hundreds of ISP facilities.
The combination of performance based routing, system redundancy and intelligent
DNS services provide them with unmatched performance and reliability.
Akamai is the only hosting company that offers guaranteed
levels of service with 100% uptime. Their next competitor offers 99.6% uptime,
which means outages of up to 35 hours per year. The phone system in the US has a
goal of 3 minutes of outages per year and Akamai beats that. Since their
inception they have never had to pay out on any outage. Yahoo uses Akamai to
deliver over 99% of all their bannar ads.
The two key elements of Akamai providing this level
of service are the redundant DNS servers with specialized routing information
which includes actual performance information in the routing decision as well as
their use of 4,000 servers located in the largest ISP's creating their 'edge'
server strategy. This means our customers training will always be avalable and
it will always be fast.
