Content delivery application
An intelligent content delivery application that gives organizations greater control over how they deliver online content, CrowdCache transfers bandwidth access to the content owner. Unlike traditional CDNs and other cloud-based services, CrowdCache is an elastic caching system that functions on top of virtually any type of hardware and operating system and is piloted through a simple Web interface and API. The CrowdCache application removes the engineering complexity and operational overhead created by content delivery networks and allows users to quickly build and run an infrastructure to their exact specifications and needs. Built on the founding principles of utility computing, CrowdCache allows users to scale the delivery infrastructure, as necessary, without the steep learning curve of running a large scale, complex infrastructure. CrowdCache is controlled and operated by CrowdDirector, the management console that also acts as a globally distributed content load balancer for all 3Crowd products.
