The Velocix Virtual CDN decouples the software that controls and routes traffic on a network from the physical computing and storage resources. Virtualization also lets operators create a new CDN cache in case of a hardware failure. It's also designed to use automatic resource allocation to create an "elastic CDN" capable of adjusting capacity to both planned and unexpected changes in demand. After a peak, computing resources can be released for other applications.
Additional new features include a new user interface and more flexible reports, integration with the network routing control plane, Velocix Universal Network Application Programming Interface (UNAPI), and Velocix Proxy Language.
