Features & Support Verizon Digital Media Services KeyCDN
Origin-Pull Yes YesHelpOrigin can be an IP address or a host name.
Push (upload to CDN servers) Yes YesHelpConfiguration possibilities are minimal.
Purge Yes YesHelpIt takes max 15 minutes to complete a purge request. Customers can configure after how long the CDN needs to check on the origin if a file is still valid.
Purge All Yes Yes
Gzip Resend 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. Only if origin server does Gzip
Persistent connections Yes Yes
Honors all origin server headers Yes Yes
Can override origin server headers YesHelpVDMS 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. Yes
Set caching headers for pushed files Yes Yes
Custom CNAMEs YesHelpYou 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. Yes
