XCDN is a no commit, pay as you go CDN powered by the Akamai Intelligent Platform. XCDN was created by Exceda, a cloud service provider that specializes in the integration and management of the whole Akamai service portfolio. Exceeda has been a preferred Akamai Platinum Reseller since 2002 making them one of their oldest and most experienced partners.
The XCDN platform offers just the essential features of Akamai’s global CDN and prices them competitively for the SMB market. Working direct with Akamai often requires a minimum commitment of $1,000/month with a 12 month commitment. XCDN puts their network within reach of companies who aren’t there quite yet. Pricing is simple and straightforward with one global rate and no regional upcharges.
XCDN customers get access to the Akamai network, which is the largest in the world. Although Akamai has over 170,000 servers globally, it is segmented into smaller sub-networks. XCDN customers will likely not have access to the full network, although Akamai’s smallest sub-networks are still larger than most of their competitors.
Pricing & Contract Terms
XCDN offers 4 plans ranging from under $10/month to $500/month. All plans offer the same basic features and varying bandwidth up to 10TB. New customers get 100GB free. Even under the smallest plan, the customer pays less than $.10/GB, which is very competitive for Akamai service.
