Local cloud services provider Global Digital Management Solutions (GDMS) partners with Conversant Solutions, a Singapore-based digital media solutions provider to offer the first software-defined Enterprise Content Delivery Network (CDN) service in Myanmar and Laos.
Since the COVID-19 pandemic, many have shifted their day-to-day activities to online. To sustain the spike in Internet traffic, CDN services are now more critical than ever.
Thanks to CDN services, businesses that serve local and global markets or mobilize employees via the Internet will be able to provide their customers or users with an enhanced online experience in terms of the accessibility and responsiveness of their website or web-based applications.
Online gaming, video streaming, payment transactions as well as other digital content and media are delivered over the web with minimized lag and improved availability through CDN services.
Thanks to this partnership, the CDN solution is readily available for Myanmar and Laos enterprises through an easy subscription-based model that allows digital companies to use GDMS’s CDN services without the need to invest in hardware equipment, maintenance, and other related operational expenses.
According to Mathieu Ploton, GDMS Chief Technical Officer, “GDMS enterprise CDN services help organizations improve the security and performance of their digital assets. Slow website performance has a measurable effect on conversion rates which results in revenue loss. DDoS attacks can have disastrous consequences for an online business as well. Adopting CDN is a fundamental step for any digital business these days.”
On the other hand, Cheong Kong Wai, Executive Chairman, and CEO for Conversant Solutions said, “This strategic alliance allows GDMS to provide CDN services to its customers by leveraging on the reach and scale of our network, through our SwiftFederation Partners. We are excited to share GDMS’s commitment to helping its customers to grow and drive their brand forward in this increasingly connected world.”
In practical terms, CDN acts as an intermediary between the point of origin of data and an internet-connected device. Through a network of servers located around the world, companies can deliver digital content, such as websites or videos, faster, safer, and more reliably to end-users. This is especially beneficial to developing countries like Myanmar and Laos, where internet speed and resiliency remain an issue.
By subscribing to GDMS’s CDN offering, clients will also have access to numerous features like monitoring tools and analytics for customer insights and analysis, and be able to use it for geolocation. At the same time, the platform should be leveraged to cache and deliver the content through the nearest edge and help offload origin servers.
Thanks to Conversant CDN federation, GDMS can leverage a stable network through more than 90 POPs located worldwide, with a steady footprint in the Asian region. GDMS will provide local in-country customer support 24/7 to enterprises that desire to use its CDN services. Customers are also free to test the product and discover its resiliency before signing up.
