Powered by Fastly, fully integrated with DreamObjects

dream-host-cdn

LOS ANGELES, California—March 12th, 2014—DreamHost®, a global leader in Web hosting and cloud services for entrepreneurs and developers, today announced DreamSpeed CDN, a new, high speed content delivery network tightly integrated with DreamObjects – DreamHost’s eminently available and devastatingly affordable cloud storage service. Content for the web stored in DreamObjects can now be delivered to users faster than ever by a global network of hyper-fast servers.

DreamSpeed CDN is the perfect way to speed up a website or application. Whether it’s a small blog serving up cat pictures and infrequent musings on life, or a large media-heavy site loaded with 4K videos of your backyard wrestling federation’s greatest hits, DreamSpeed CDN can accelerate all web content indiscriminately and without prejudice. Enabling DreamSpeed CDN will also lighten the load on a user’s core web server, allowing it to focus on delivering only the dynamic parts of any given website or web application. Domain CNAME records are also supported, allowing accelerated content to be segregated and delivered from custom URLs.

Fast, Faster, Fastly

DreamSpeed CDN is powered by Fastly, the smartest CDN on the planet. Fastly makes quick work of serving static content, dynamic content, and APIs to users worldwide as easy as possible. Fastly built their CDN platform using state-of-the-art software and hardware including Varnish Control Language (VCL) and features all-SSD storage, multi-core CPUs, as well as 10Gb Ethernet. Fastly has points of presence at the center of the highest density Internet Exchange Points in cities around the world including (but not limited to) Los Angeles, New York, London, Hong Kong, Tokyo and Sydney. As Fastly expands its global network with the launch of additional global locations, DreamSpeed CDN users will experience unbridled speeds and terrifyingly raw power that few humans are exposed to throughout the course of their lifetimes.

DreamHost and Fastly are firm believers in using, contributing to, and promoting open source software. DreamObjects is built on Ceph, an open source software-defined storage system. Fastly is built on Varnish Cache, an open source web application accelerator. Some cities are built on rock and roll, but that’s not important right now.

DreamObjects Integration

DreamObjects users will see tight integration with DreamSpeed CDN. Individual buckets can have DreamSpeed CDN enabled with a single click, and custom URLs (using domain CNAME records) can be created just as easily.

Users can also purge stale content on demand in as little as *two seconds* with no limits on the number of purges that can be performed. Purge away! Dry-heave data to your heart’s content at no extra charge. We’ll handle the clean up.

DreamSpeed CDN is billed based on amount of data transferred and usage stats are displayed right alongside users’ DreamObjects stats. Billing charges for DreamSpeed CDN appear as a line item on a user’s DreamHost monthly bill and, much like DreamObjects, usage of DreamSpeed CDN does not require a user to maintain a supply of “fat stacks.”

Cost-Effective

DreamSpeed CDN users benefit from great pricing without commitments, minimum charges or per-request fees. Instant purges and domain aliases are standard features included at no extra charge. DreamSpeed CDN users only pay for outbound cached bandwidth as well as standard DreamObjects disk and bandwidth usage charges.

DreamSpeed CDN is billed per GB and by region. Pricing starts at $0.12/GB for the regions of North America and Europe and $0.19/GB for Australia, New Zealand and Asia-Pacific.
