The main conference track for Velocity New York 2014 kicked off on Day 2. The day began with some outstanding keynote presentations. I will highlight just a few of them (as well as some talks from the ops and performance tracks) that particularly resonated with me.
I’ve just finished up a highly enjoyable first day here at the Velocity Conference in New York. Day 1 consisted of a full day of tutorials before the main conference tracks kick off on Tuesday and Wednesday.
It was a great opportunity to touch base with many of our peers and partners such as Cedexis, Dyn, EdgeCast, MaxCDN and Fastly. Being a web performance focused company, my eyes were firmly on the Performance Track. Here is what I saw:
Server-side archiving has been one of the most requested live streaming features here at MetaCDN. It provides the ability for customers to record their live streaming events to cloud storage to either download or serve through our on demand video player. Today, we are happy to announce the availability of this feature to all our existing and new PRO plan users.
If you are an existing PRO customer and want to start archiving, it’s easily to get started. Simply log into your MetaCDN web portal, head into ‘My Account’, and you will be able to enable Live Streaming server-side archiving under the ‘Account Information’ tab. What’s more exciting is there will be no extra charge for PRO users to enable this service, and you will only get billed of the data storage and transfer for your archived files.
MetaCDN is pleased to announce the introduction of a new lower tier ‘Basic’ CDN plan.
The $20/month ‘Basic’ plan is perfect for users with a single website who don’t need the added extras of our higher tier plans.
If you have any queries about the new plan tweet us at @metacdn or send us an email.
We’re pleased to announce that MetaCDN are now offering monthly rollover for unused credits for all Content Delivery and Live Streaming plans. Credits left over from the previous month’s allocation are now being rolled over into the next month. This is free of charge, and is now in effect for all new and existing accounts.
A few things to note:
- If your account is closed then reopened you will lose all of the built up credits and will have to start from scratch.
- Credits are now effectively valid for 2 months.
If you have any questions about this new feature feel free to contact us!
