The Challenge: Expansion in LATAM
Because of the growing demand for Internet services and the expansion of digital companies in Latin America, CacheFly entered the region focusing on traffic exchange routes to offer a stronger, high-quality internet experience that would make it possible to sustain digital migration over the world.
For CDN companies like CacheFly, latency is dramatically important. Delivering content in the lowest time possible regardless of the location it is coming from. CacheFly needed an ally who could deliver content, have a strong presence and lead the market in the Latin American region. Who, in addition to knowing about the technical solutions of the region, knew the regulations of each country and provided a customer service focus for their business.
