In June, Limelight Networks acquired Yahoo’s Edgecast, more than doubling its revenue, and rebranded as Edgio. According to Dan Rayburn, a streaming media expert/analyst, “This is by far the best deal we have ever seen negotiated by a CDN vendor in acquiring a rival CDN, where the company wasn’t going under.”
Edgio prevented one of the largest recorded DDoS attacks measuring ~176 million packets per second (Mpps) which targeted a multinational e-commerce client based in Asia. Then, on June 27th, 2022, Edgio prevented yet another, even larger, DDoS attack on an important customer. This attack was 355.14 Mpps, which places it at 44% of the largest publicly disclosed DDoS attack ever.
You’ve probably heard the news that Limelight will soon be starting a new journey as Edgio. But what does that mean, and how did we get here?
