Cedexis is a web performance monitoring and optimization company founded in 2009 in the bay area and has offices San Francisco, Paris, and Portland. They monitor web performance across dozens of data centers, CDNs, and clouds around the world.
They have 3 primary services; benchmarking, load balancing, and analytics. All of their services rely on real user monitoring (RUM) and offer granular insights on optimization opportunities across desktop, mobile, geography, ISP, browser, or device type. They monitor over 40 CDNs and nearly all the major cloud providers including AWS, CenturyLink, Google Cloud, Internap, Rackspace, and SoftLayer.
Cedexis operates in 78 data centers across 5 continents to ensure 100% platform availability. While this is certainly impressive, they also have one of the largest RUM networks in the world, collecting over 5 billion data points per day from end users around the globe. Radar end users are typical visitors from a wide range of large websites and mobile applications across all verticals and in all corners of the world. This provides more accurate and realistic performance data than traditional backbone tests that ping services from a data center (often times the CDN has servers within the very same data centers).
Pricing & Contract Terms
Cedexis offers free country reports that show you daily performance benchmarks among all the major providers by country based on response time and throughput. Private benchmark data and other more advanced monitoring features are available at a cost.
Their most popular feature is called Cedexis Openimx which allows you to load balance between multiple providers based on real-time performance data they collect from the radar community. Companies can also load balance based on other criteria like up-time, cost, region, etc. Pricing for this product is based on the number of ‘decisions’ per month and can vary significantly depending on what type of traffic you have.
