EdgeCast, SoftLayer Extend Partnership

Santa Monica-based content delivery network provider EdgeCast said Wednesday that it has extended its multi-year partnership with hosting provider SoftLayer, and will continue to offer a CDN which is built on EdgeCast's network. Financial details of the deal were not disclosed. SoftLayer--which was recently acquired by IBM--sells EdgeCast's CDN services under a white label relationship with the company. EdgeCast says its CDN services are being used by such customers as Hulu, Twitter, and Pinterest.
