LeaseWeb is hosting company founded in 1997 in the early days of the Internet. Their product offering has grown over time and they now offer a large portfolio of hosting related services such as bare metal servers, colocation, CDN, managed hosting, and public and private clouds. The company is headquartered in Amsterdam and is part of the OCOM Group. It wasn’t until 2012 that LeaseWeb announced their public cloud platform in an attempt to compete with the major IaaS providers like AWS, Microsoft, and Google. In 2013 LeaseWeb launched their own CDN.
The company currently operates 8 data centers in the US, Europe, and Asia and carries a network capacity of 5Tbps. Some of their customers include Starbucks, Kelkoo, and Heineken.
The LeaseWeb network includes 58 points of presence and 36 Internet Exchanges globally. They carry a network capacity of 5Tbps with peak traffic of 2.5Tbps. They operate their own data centers in the following locations:
Europe: Amsterdam (Haarlem, Zuidoost, Schiphol-Riijk x2), Frankfurt
Asia: Hong Kong, Singapore
United States: San Jose, Washington DC
LeaseWeb pricing is very flexible and transparent, even for complex offerings like dedicated servers, virtual servers, or colocation. You can even build your own servers by selecting the location, processing power, bandwidth, etc and get an instant quote on their website. Contract terms for servers generally start at 6 months and pricing gets more aggressive for longer commits.
CDN pricing is pay-as-you-go with no long term contracts required. Plans start around $50/TB for global delivery and go down from there. They do charge for HTTP requests over 500M. As with most usage based CDN providers, they do offer enterprise plans with custom pricing for those with high volume traffic.
