Hello. I’m Ernie.

I’m a blogger, and ex-analyst focused on the Content Delivery Network (CDN) industry. Having started in 2015, I’ve published a vast amount of commentary since then, discussing the competitive landscape, products, pricing, startups, vendors, and innovations.

What is a CDN? At one time, a CDN was simply a global network of infrastructure that cached static content, fetched it from origin when not in cache, and delivered it to end-users at the edge. Today, CDNs are complex business models that provide a comprehensive set of features and capabilities in content delivery, video streaming, security, computing, storage, database, and more.

What qualifications do I have? I started in the CDN industry in 2007, working for EdgeCast. After that, I worked for others, then started an analyst firm, working on it full-time for five years, and counted more than a dozen CDNs as customers. Today, I work for Varnish Software, the industry leader in DIY (do-it-yourself) CDN. Our software stack complements existing multi-CDN deployments.

Please note that I’m an investor in all four public CDNs, so my opinions are biased.

Opinions are my own and not of my employer.
