Velocix and Kontiki Announce Strategic Partnership

Velocix and Kontiki are partnering to extend their solutions for web delivery of large digital assets, including video, software and games. Under the terms of the partnership, Velocix will provide a hosted version of the Kontiki Delivery Management System (DMS) within its Global Digital Asset Delivery Network, providing new deployment options for Kontiki customers and prospects.

As Kontiki's preferred CDN partner, Velocix will provide Kontiki customers with additional opportunity to subscribe to the Kontiki service, as an alternative to owning and operating the application and hardware themselves. This gives Kontiki customers flexibility and choice of deployment models in accessing the benefits of P2P web delivery.

Both organizations share a common view of the economic and scalability benefits that Hybrid P2P based solutions offer over traditional delivery systems. Velocix and Kontiki also plan to collaborate jointly on new developments that create the next generation of P2P technologies and solutions that meet the ongoing needs of the world's leading ISPs; minimizing network traffic, while providing cost effective scalable content delivery.
