Rebranding Jet-Stream, sneak preview
We have been working on rebranding Jet-Stream in the past months. Here’s a sneak preview of our new logo!
I write a lot about telco CDN strategies. So logically I get a lot of questions about my strategies with Jet Stream and especially StreamZilla. Which I of course won’t share :-)
What I can tell is that we have been able to get the highest margins in our industry so far. Which is important because we need to invest as well. StreamZilla has been profitable from the start and although we don’t have the highest traffic volumes, we do have good margins, and we keep increasing our margins. Most CDNs think it is all about volume and traffic. That is just partially true. I’m not going to give away our secrets, but running a profitable CDN is more about efficiency…

Question: What is the definition of a CDN?
Content owners of course compare CDN’s. But what is a CDN? Some say that CDN’s have become a commodity. I disagree. There are so many different approaches. Comparing CDN’s is comparing apples and pears. I have seen some lists on the net that try to categorize CDN’s into different categories. But IMHO that does not help content owners compare CDN’s.
Historically a CDN is a highly decentralized file distribution & geographical user load balancing platform. The best example is Akamai who has deployed thousands of servers globally, close to many ISP networks.
Some claim that the Akamai model defines what a CDN is. But today there are so many different approaches, with different technologies, different regions and different market approaches.
