Asahi Shimbun Digital, Japan’s leading online news source, can now reliably deliver the latest news faster to readers anywhere

TOKYO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Asahi Shimbun, Japan’s 2nd largest newspaper, chose CDNetworks for content delivery from their leading online news site, Asahi Shimbun Digital (http://www.asahi.com).

“Asahi Shimbun Digital now has reliable delivery and provides faster access to news. We were able to reduce operating costs and infrastructure investment by running on CDNetworks. Even when news events cause high volumes of traffic, the website runs without problems”

"Asahi Shimbun Digital now has reliable delivery and provides faster access to news. We were able to reduce operating costs and infrastructure investment by running on CDNetworks. Even when news events cause high volumes of traffic, the website runs without problems," said the head of Digital at Asahi Shimbun.

With millions of readers and translated versions in English, Chinese and Korean, Asahi Shimbun Digital required a reliable infrastructure and environment that can maintain high performance, even during traffic spikes. The spread of smart phones and year over year increases in traffic volume caused Asahi Shimbun Digital to need a more powerful CDN that also supports mobile devices. Asahi Shimbun Digital switched to CDNetworks after seeing results of faster, more reliable, and more efficient content delivery.

CDNetworks Content acceleration (CA) allows fast display of websites by caching content on 140 global points of presence closer to end users. Content, such as Images and videos, is continuously cached on multiple CDNetworks servers, so that content is delivered from the closest server. This eliminates the latency experienced by users further away from the Japan-based Asahi Shimbun Digital web server and ensures a great user experience no matter where consumers are located.
