Mydeo’s SaaS (software-as-a-service) offering, http://www.mydeo.com, offers a number of benefits to the small business customer requiring the high performance and reliable delivery of Limelight’s CDN services. These include lower minimum throughput plans, instant online account set up and free trial, no setup costs, no minimum contract terms and free premium reporting. Mydeo supports all major file formats and offers users the choice of streaming or HTTP delivery.
“The service is aimed at small businesses with the same needs as the large corporations, i.e. requiring high quality media delivery to increase their website performance, run rich campaigns, build brands and boost sales, but with lower data throughput requirements,” commented Mydeo’s Founder and CEO, Cary Marsh. “It helps them overcome some of the technical difficulties associated with delivering high resolution media files on their websites such as poor delivery and reduced site performance. By incorporating Limelight’s CDN services into Mydeo’s services bundle, video and other rich media files are delivered effortlessly, allowing the website to remain fully engaged with the customer.”
“Limelight’s web acceleration capabilities, combined with Mydeo’s software, provide small and large businesses alike access to a robust, cloud-based platform designed to quickly deliver media across a variety of websites,” said George Fraser, Limelight Networks Vice President of Sales, EMEA. “Site speed and fast load times of rich media and video files help foster user engagement and loyalty.”
“We chose Limelight Networks as the CDN powering our bundled solution due to its unmatched flexibility, scalability and reliability. We will continue to use the Limelight Networks CDN for media delivery in our next software release, which will be built out on Microsoft’s Windows Azure platform, due out at the end of Q2 2011,” commented Marsh.
Mydeo was launched by Cary Marsh and Iain Millar in 2005 following a DTI Research and Development grant for Technical Innovation. Mydeo was the first and only European hosting service to be fully integrated into Microsoft’s Windows Movie Maker software. Mydeo now provides high-quality streaming video and content delivery services to thousands of individuals and businesses around the world.
In October 2007 Mydeo announced that Best Buy, the largest consumer electronics retailer in the US with market cap of over $20bn, were taking a minority equity stake in Mydeo, and would be using the Mydeo platform for its own bespoke video hosting service.
Mydeo won a commendation in the ‘Best Streaming Service’ category at the 2009 UK Internet Service Provider awards and was named a Red Herring Europe 100 finalist.
Mydeo’s founder, Cary Marsh, is currently the face of British Telecom’s “Next Generation Access” campaign; she has been named in the business category of the prestigious COURVOISIER® The Future 500 list; and was awarded the inaugural Iris Award at the NatWest Everywoman Awards in recognition of her business success through effective implementation and use of IT and Communications.
