Limelight Networks joins Google Cloud Platform’s CDN program

MUMBAI: Limelight Networks, which offers digital content delivery, today announced that it has joined Google Cloud Platform’s CDN Interconnect program.

Customers will be able to leverage Limelight’s network inter-connectivity and CDN capabilities with Google Cloud Platform’s product offerings, including Google Cloud Storage and Google Compute Engine.

As part of this relationship, Google and Limelight will work together to drive customer success through technical integrations and mutual sales engagements. Joint customers will benefit from faster object delivery, global scale and the flexibility to use both Limelight and Google Cloud Platform.

The joint offering is available immediately.
