Cool Company: Concurrent Computer Corporation


Concurrent Computer Corp (CCUR) is an innovative software company providing Transparent Caching and Localized CDN Services to Network Operators. The company has been around since 1966, but recently branched in the content delivery ecosystem. Initially, CCUR provided its RedHawk Linux OS and related tool set to the military and Network Operators including Lockheed Martin, Raytheon, Airbus, Time Warner, J:COM (Japan) and Liberty Global.

Thereafter, they added storage, then Transparent Caching capabilities. Their main CDN product is called “UpShift Unified Content Delivery Solution”. It’s a comprehensive end-to-end solution that provides everything from ingest to delivery, including caching, reporting, DVR, DRM, security, origin storage, and so on. Compared to a Qwilt, CCUR goes much deeper into the subscriber environment, where their software currently powers Set Top Boxes for a few Tier 1 Cable Operators throughout the US. Their #1 goal is to further expand into Europe, APAC and LatAm.
