We are very pleased to announce the 2.2 release of the MetaCDN platform, available immediately. As part of this release, we are thrilled to announce some exciting new plans for Website Accelerator and Live Streaming customers. Super-charging your online presence has never been more affordable or powerful, allowing you to reach a global audience with confidence and ease.
We have created new, more flexible Website Acceleration plans. These new plans combine all functions and benefits of the old Standard, Advanced and Advanced-S website accelerators into one affordable package, including:
- 100% Guaranteed Uptime via multiple active CDNs
- 66 active points of presence (PoPs)
- Automatic Failover
- Static and dynamic acceleration
- Secure Shared SSL
There will only be one “type” of website accelerator going forward, which is available on all plan levels. Each plan allows you to accelerate multiple websites, as well as including a generous allocation of data credit.
Not to be left out – our Live Streaming service has some fantastic new plans available also. Each plan includes multiple live streaming channels (which can be broadcast to simultaneously!), with each channel available at multiple qualities. Plans also include a generous allocation of data credit. Our Pro plan and above takes you to the next level – allowing you to stream up to 6 different quality levels per channel, letting you target a greater number of devices and bandwidth levels. Each plan includes all the features you know and love from our existing Live Streaming service, including:
- Ad free service
- Add your own branding
- Multi-channel broadcasting
- Local publish points
- Embed on any website
- Stream to mobile devices (including HLS support)
- In-line Facebook playback
Simple pricing. No nasty surprises.
Each plan includes generous service and data credit inclusions, and are available at an affordable and easy to understand price. Your data usage can vary from month to month, so instead of rigid data caps (e.g. in gigabytes or data requests), we have introduced flexible data credits as part of your plan, which you can use as your needs change.
Generous discounts of over 20% are also available if you subscribe to a yearly pre-paid plan.
If you are an existing customer on an old Website Acceleration (Standard, Advanced or Advanced-S) or Live Streaming subscription, you will be contacted over the coming weeks to discuss your migration options. We think you will love the new plans!
