Internet performance isn’t actually determined by your ISP connection. The global Internet backbone is a messy set of carriers loosely connected. Traffic routing is based more on business issues like market dominance, competition, regulatory systems, and other issues.
So what do you do if you want to improve your Internet connections? Teridion, our sponsor for today’s show, is doing something unique to change the basic idea of how to select best paths across the Internet and deliver content quickly.
We discuss how Teridion’s approach differs from traditional CDNs, how it improves performance and predictability, and why the solution makes particular sense for cloud-native and SaaS companies and applications.
We also get into the technical details on the company’s cloud network, the limits of traditional Internet routing, and how Teridion measures real-time performance to identify the best routes for traffic to take to ensure an excellent quality of experience.
