On Tuesday, an announcement was made that probably felt groundbreaking to most, but a bit meager to us. Limelight announced they would provide a money-back guarantee if they failed to improve video re-buffer rates by 10% relative to other CDN’s. While all improvement is great (and needed), 10% is nothing to get excited about.
Here at Swarmify, we care more about video delivery than anyone else, probably even more than is healthy… 10% is just not good enough. A 10% improvement to the industry average 28% buffer rate only decreases it to 25%. That means 1 in 4 video views still re-buffer. We don’t think that’s something to be proud of, let alone shout from the rooftops about.
28% Re-Buffer Rate Industry Wide
This is different, way different
Swarmify brings real change to your video delivery. We provide a patent pending, realtime client-side CDN blending that blows the competition out of the water. Using a single CDN or server side switching is the old way. It can’t compete with our edge network-aware intelligence that seamlessly blends and switches between networks in realtime. Never again will your users suffer from subpar or intermittent performance. Our SmartVideo solution adapts, self-heals, and mitigates network issues where it matters most: at the client edge.
80% Re-Buffer Reduction/20% Revenue Increase
Because we care so much, we decided to provide a meaningful guarantee that will significantly impact your business. For a limited time, we are offering a money-back guarantee: if you implement our Smart Video solution for 90 days, you will see an 80% reduction in re-buffers and/or a 20% lift in your video ad revenue. All of this at the same pricing per GB you are currently paying. Same offer as Limelight, except we went bigger... 8x bigger. Plus, we are giving you what you really care about: more revenue
Maybe that’s something to shout from the rooftops about
