Company profile

Verizon Digital Media Services is a division of Verizon and headquartered in Los Angeles, California. Founded in 2011, VDMS acquired EdgeCast CDN in 2013 and startup upLynk for their streaming video technology. Since then, VDMS has steadily built out the CDN network with new POPs in LATAM, India and the Middle-East and many modern CDN features.

Network Map

Verizon Digital Media Services identified a smaller number of strategic global locations near primary Internet Exchange Points, and built supercharged points of presence, called SuperPOPs. These SuperPOPs have massive amounts of computing and caching power and are directly connected to all the major backbone networks. Verizon Digital Media Services CDN Network Map

Features & Support

Verizon Digital Media Services is a high-end CDN and has all the basic features, and more, like multiple origins and CNAMEs and an HTTP Rules Engine that gives you highly granular control over how, when - and even if - your content is served. VDMS provides robust security features to prevent hotlinking, piracy, and other forms of content theft.

Features & Support
Push (upload to CDN servers)Yes
Purge AllYes
GzipResend from origin, or compress on edgeHelpBy default, all Gzip compression is off, even if the origin sends a file compressed. VDMS does gzipping on the edge servers and this is easy to turn on in the online control panel. You can define the MIME types for files that should be compressed yourself which is great. Files larger than 1MB will never be served with compression, but that should not be a problem. If you want VDMS to honor the origin server compression on a cache miss request, you have to ask your VDMS account manager explicitly this on.
Persistent connectionsYes
Honors all origin server headersYes
Can override origin server headersYesHelpVDMS offers 3 modes for handling files with query string parameters (for example all.css?v=1). This can come in quite handy in some cases.
Set caching headers for pushed filesYes
Custom CNAMEsYesHelpYou can have multiple origins and CNAMEs. It's easy to setup in the online control panel. VDMS gives the IP addresses (ranges) of all their POPs, so you can whitelist the access to your origin if you need to.
Control Panel & statisticsYesHelpVDMS provides an easy-to-use, intuitive online panel. It includes lots of reports, like Traffic Summary, Data Transferred, Cache Hit Ratio and CDN Storage. You can add Users and grant each user access to specific sections in the control panel.
Access LogsYes
SupportYesHelpYou get a dedicated account manager and you will also be assigned a dedicated implementation engineer.
