Internet in France: "Did you say digital divide?"

The lastest report about quality of service over the Internet was published this Wednesday by Cedexis and GESTE.  It seems to be in line with the previous year – with little global growth and stagnant general performance: here is the general assessment.

With, investments in fibre optic and 4G, there was in fact a small enhancement to the quality of service. In the first quarter of 2016, there is an improvement of the median loading time. In the last three months of 2015, the median loading time was about 6.9 seconds. It is now about 6.3 seconds.

Geste-Q11

However – this  benefit is very modest and given the absence of major events in the beginning of this year, (compared to the last quarter of 2015) we believe this largely explains this improvement. While the attacks in November in Paris, and the end-of-year holiday sales have fed the congestion on networks, the first three months of 2016 were calmer, apart from the tragic attacks in Brussels.

The capacity improvement is real. However,  the gap between the loading time of the fastest Internet users and slowest Internet user is getting bigger. Indeed, we find out that the gap between the 10 % of fastest Internet users and the 5 % of the slowest ones was 30 seconds in January and an abysmal 33.5 seconds in March.

Will we continue to see a broadening of the digital divide?  Between users equipped with excellent connectivity and those who draw the short straw? Perhaps, and if the trend is confirmed, we should be worried about the next set of reports: in the next six months, the French networks will be required to support the traffic peaks related to the Olympic Games, the Euro 2016, the Tour de France and Roland-Garros. Summer will be hot.

Cedexis Named to Tech Tour Growth 50

Distinguished As One of Fifty European Companies with Highest Growth

Portland, Oregon and Paris, France — March 17, 2016Cedexis, the leader in performance optimized global traffic management-as-a-service, today announced that the company has been named to the Tech Tour Growth 50. The Tech Tour Growth Forum evaluated 1,175 companies and brings together more than fifty leading European high-growth companies, their investors and advisers.  The selection committee, chaired by Jean-Michel Deligny, Silverpeak, was composed of 18 international venture capital firms, advisers and experts including: Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Accel Partners, Highland Capital Partners Europe, Amadeus Capital Partners, DN Capital, Idinvest Partners, Earlybird and The World Economic Forum.

“Two months after we announced our Series B round, we were recognized in the Tech Tour Growth 50. This kind of validation from the market and the community poises us to complete our mission: to make the Internet faster for everyone,” said Julien Coulon, Cedexis founder. “We are very pleased to earn this kind of recognition – especially from Tech Tour Growth.

Through a combination of quantitative research and a qualitative selection process the Tech Tour, in conjunction with the International Venture Club, Dow Jones Venture Source and Go4Venture Advisers, has identified a list of 50 of Europe’s fastest growing pre-exit investor backed companies. Once identified, the Tech Tour Growth Forum Selection committee extends invitations to entrepreneurs that have already built and exited companies or entrepreneurs whose businesses have the potential for hyper-growth and/or stand to disrupt established industries.  Through the Tech Tour Growth 50, the organization identifies the next set of European companies on the brink of “unicorn” status.

“The billion dollar “unicorn” successes that grab our attention are just the tip of the iceberg,” said William Stevens, Managing Director, Tech Tour. “The Tech Tour Growth 50 puts the next layer of Europe’s high-tech, high-growth businesses in the limelight. The Tech Tour Growth 50 Companies have created over 8,000 high-tech jobs, attracted over $3.5 billion of investment and have an estimated combined valuation of $14.2 billion. This is a clear demonstration of Europe’s strength, potential and competitiveness in scaling-up tech businesses.”

March 8th: Women in the Internet Hall of Fame.

The history of the Internet, and more generally the development of modern computing has mainly evolved over the last six decades. Today is International Women’s Day, and yet we can only draw a mixed picture of the place of women in the Internet revolution. There have been two feminist waves ,first in the United States then worldwide. The numbers are overwhelming:

  • Women represent in France, 60% of Internet users. In the U.S. Women are nearly half the Internet Users.
  • Despite their numbers, they hold only 32.5% of positions in the IT sector, while a study by the Ministry of Labour published in 2013 put the share of women in overall employment to nearly 50 %
  • The Internet Hall of Fame, the main database of the pioneers of the Internet revolution, only has 12 women in the rankings from 2012 to 2014, as opposed to 77 men. Only 13.48% women.
  • In the French economy in general, women represent 32% of entrepreneurs, 30.3% of members of boards of directors for the CAC 40 companies, 39.2% of executives and private business leaders. The CAC 40 is the list of top companies in France – much like the Dow Jones

The CEO of IBM (Virginia Rometty, CEO), Yahoo (Marissa Mayer, CEO), HP (Meg Whitman) and HTC (Cher Wang, chairwoman) are honorable cases, but far too rare.

The statistics are distressing – but on this March 8, we would like to put forward Women of the Internet Hall of Fame.

Femmes-Internet

An “Internet Hall of Women” for the occasion is in order! So here is is:

  • Mitchell Baker, co-founder of the Mozilla Foundation and evangelist for open source solutions for the Internet.
  • Karen Banks, a pioneer of new technologies and the social change they bring.
  • Anne-Marie Eklund Löwinder, pioneering and evangelizing DNSSEC domain name security system.
  • Anriette Esterhuysen, executive director of the Association for Progressive Communications.
  • Susan Estrada, founder of CERFnet, one of the first IP networks.
  • Elizabeth Feinler, researcher and head of the Network Information Center in the 60s, then became ARPANET and the Defense Data Network, a “Google prehistory” according to the researcher who published a story brimming with anecdotes (disponible gratuitement en anglais à cette adresse).
  • Nancy Hafkin, a pioneer in the development of networks in Africa at the United Nations in particular.
  • Ida Holz, a pioneer of the Internet in Latin America development.
  • Qiheng Hu, head of the team that brought the Internet to China.
  • Kanchana Kanchanasut, pioneer of Internet development in Southeast Asia.
  • Dorcas Muthoni, founder of Openworld and pioneering new technologies in East Africa.
  • Radia Perlman, inventor of an IP routing protocol.

The Internet Hall of Fame Ranking is imperfect, yet it is the best thing we have to rank the true innovators. As you can see – there have been significant contributions by women (and men) – who have participated in many ways, whether in the technological development of computers or the spread of networks worldwide. Again, rankings of inventors are often incomplete. Yet we want to acknowledge the few women that have already been recognized. Not surprising though, since the computer science history is older than that of the Internet, and that it takes its roots in times when parity was even less advanced.

Here is some fun for Internet researchers, computer scientists, innovative or pioneering to (re) discover: Grace Hopper, Inventor of the langage COBOL, Barbara Liskov, creator of the Liskov Substitution Principle or, to go back even further, Ada Lovelace “pioneer of computer science” and recognized as the first computer programmer.

Cedexis Lands $22 Million in Financing to Promote Global Growth

Leading Global VCs and Corporate Sponsors Invest in Next Generation Web, Video and Application Acceleration Market

Portland, Oregon and Paris, France — January 26, 2016 — Cedexis, a leader in Internet measurement and optimization, today announced the closing of a $22 million Series B financing round, bringing total company funding to $33 million. Ginko Ventures led the round, with participation from Foxconn, Nokia Growth Partners (NGP), Citrix Systems Ventures as well as Cedexis’ Series A investors, Advanced Technology Ventures and Madrona Ventures. This latest investment will support immediate opportunities to drive global growth as well as to broaden solutions for accelerating over-the-top (OTT) video, Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) services and web application delivery.

“The web is now at the core of value delivery in almost every industry, making web performance mission critical for most enterprises. Cedexis dramatically increases an enterprise’s ability to improve their users’ Quality of Experience (QoE) over shared ‘best effort’ networks and clouds,” said Scott Grout, CEO of Cedexis.  “We have a very unique approach of crowd-sourcing billions of daily end-user measurements from a shared community of hundreds of participating global enterprises.  This data set yields unprecedented real-time visibility into global web performance which we then use to optimally route users across multiple networks (CDNs), clouds or data centers dramatically improving their experiences.  This increases consumer engagement and measurably improves business results for the enterprise,” said Scott Grout, Cedexis CEO.

“Global enterprises using Cedexis are at the leading edge of a revolution in how companies proactively manage their value delivery across shared Internet infrastructure,” said Dominique Pitteloud Managing Director at Ginko Ventures.  “Cedexis’ focus on improving user QoE, and thus increasing enterprise revenues, customer retention and conversion rates, is impressive.  It aligns well with Foxconn Group’s desire to invest in successful technology providers, including those focused on software value creation,” continued Fang-Ming Lu, EVP of Foxconn (a principle LP in Ginko Ventures).

Cedexis is at the forefront of the transition to cloud-centric SaaS infrastructure.  The Cedexis approach of informing their global traffic management solution using crowd-sourced data, from the very audiences that utilize their customers’ web applications, is truly novel and differentiated in the marketplace”, said Andy Cohen, VP of Strategic Development of Citrix.

“With their ability to optimize Internet performance and cost in real-time, Cedexis is a real game-changer for enterprises” said Bo Ilsoe, Managing partner at NGP.  “With deep roots in both the US and France, we are delighted to invest in Cedexis and help accelerate their global expansion.”

Cedexis’ customer base is rapidly approaching 1,000 global enterprises and includes major brands such as Accor Hotels, Airbus, Bloomberg, Comcast, LinkedIn, Microsoft, Mozilla, Nissan, PBS, Tumblr and Shutterstock.  In addition, Cedexis partners with all leading CDN, cloud, hosting and APM providers, globally, to establish the world’s largest performance community focused on improving Internet performance for billions of users worldwide.

In addition to the $22M in equity financing, the company secured a $770K business development loan from bpifrance, a leading French investment bank that actively promotes fast-growing global companies with roots in France.  The total $22.8 million of new funding will be used to extensively expand the size and global reach of Cedexis as well as to accelerate customer growth.  Cedexis will be increasing investments and hiring in engineering, marketing and sales.

APM Tools: 2 MORE reasons to include APM tools in your real-time traffic decisions!

In a previous post we have described how the Cedexis “Fusion” tool allows users to ingest APM data in real time and make it actionable to avoid outages.

As I stated in that posting:

“..there is a persistent need to synthetically monitor specific elements of an application stack to ensure uptime and understand WHAT is failing when something inevitably fails”

To briefly review Fusion take a glance at this diagram:

Screen-Shot-2015-09-30-at-4.06.40-PM

So now on to the great news! We are really excited to add 2 more premier partners to our growing Fusion family of APM tool integrations! 

Two new important Fusion partners join the Cedexis community.

Both Azure and AWS (Cloudwatch) have been added as APM data feeds to our growing set of APM integration partners.  These include great names like New Relic, Rigor, Catchpoint and many others. See the full list here.

These integrations allow the customer to pull-in operational data about the CPU, disk, memory and network usage of an instance into Openmix applications. They can then shed or halt traffic if the machine gets overloaded on any of those metrics.  So your app stays up. And you can be the on-call hero!

Screen-Shot-2015-10-01-at-9.31.08-AM

In both cases you can simply configure your servers with whichever APM tool you are using. They will both produce simple JSON feeds that can be ingested into Openmix for realtime decisions. Lets take a look at the JSON you can expect to get back from each of the tools.

Azure Openmix Json

The Azure fusion data feed produces a json object that contains Azure Virtual Machine monitoring metrics.  The Fusion Azure data structure that will be sent to Openmix currently looks like this:

{  
  "disk_writes_kbps": 0.279,
  "network_in_mb": 3286.48,
  "memory_available_mb": 1479,
  "disk_reads_kbps": 0,
  "memory_available_pct": 88,
  "network_out_mb": 2343.892,
  "cpu_time_pct": 20.5
}

AWS Cloudwatch Openmix Json

The CloudWatch fusion data feed produces a json object that contains AWS CloudWatch Virtual Machine monitoring metrics.  The Fusion CloudWatch data structure that will be sent to Openmix currently looks like this:

{  
  "disk_writes_kbps": 0.279,
  "network_in_mb": 3286.48,
  "memory_available_mb": 1479,
  "disk_reads_kbps": 0,
  "memory_available_pct": 88,
  "network_out_mb": 2343.892,
  "cpu_time_pct": 20.5
}

As you can see – both tools return very similar data – in fact you can almost imagine deploying servers on both of these Cloud vendors and being able to abstract back and monitor them using their native tools – and be able to switch in real time between them based on Network Performance + Server Health. And that is in fact the point.

Fusion – The Key to Multi-Cloud, Hybrid-Cloud Solutions

The Cloud Maturity Model clearly shows that as we evolve up the stack to Multi-Vendor/ Multi-Cloud we will need to be able to monitor the application stack’s performance as part of the real-time switching.

Hybrid-Cloud-Maturity-Model

 

These two new APM integrations provide just the feature set to do that for users that are using Azure or AWS in their portfolio of clouds.

Cedexis Improves Internet Video Quality of Experience for Millions of Users of Popular Websites

Cedexis Improves Internet Video Quality of Experience for Millions of Users of Popular Websites

Leverages Cloud Platforms to minimize buffering and ensure fast video starts

cedexis_pr_logo

Portland, Oregon & Paris, France — September 14, 2015 —Cedexis, the leading provider of Internet measurement and real-time performance-optimization solutions, announces the world’s first crowd-sourced video- optimization service, bringing improved Internet video delivery to millions of online viewers for a growing list of popular websites and mobile applications.

Cedexis’ video solution has been referred to by several early-adopter customers as the “Buffer Killer,” and indeed, that is what it does.  On average, Cedexis video customers have experienced a 45% improvement in buffering; 18% improvement in video start-time; and a decrease in video failures of up to 44%.  A study by TubeMogul states “4 out of 5 people will leave a video if it pauses to buffer.”

Buffer-Killer-2

Cedexis customers, such as recently added ViewLift – the over-the-top (OTT) technology hub for SnagFilms, Funny for Free, and other popular OTT sites – take a best-of-breed approach to delivering video with high QoS for ever more demanding end users.

“Video performance is key to user retention.  We use Cedexis Openmix to ensure our users are directed to the best-performing infrastructure in real time, every time,” said Manik Bambha, Chief Digital Officer and CTO at ViewLift.  “We’ve seen a 65% decrease in buffering incidents since deploying Cedexis Openmix.  These QoS improvements deliver better quality to the end user, resulting in incredibly low viewer-abandonment rates.”

PBS, another great customer, has this to say about their experience using Cedexis for their video deployment:  “For PBS Digital, having 100% uptime and great performing video is critical. We implemented Cedexis specifically to improve our Video Quality of Service and it’s been a great decision,” said Mike Norton, Senior Director of Technical Operations at PBS Digital.

Critical to this solution is the real-time performance monitoring provided by the free Cedexis Radar community of 800+ enterprises and every major Cloud and CDN provider in the world.  Collecting billions of Internet performance metrics a day provides a real-time map of where the Internet is humming along nicely, and where interconnections between ISPs and cloud service providers, who host and distribute the world’s content, are congested or disrupted.

As video encoding moves from 720p to 1080p and now 4K, the demands on Internet Service Providers, Content Delivery Networks (CDNs) and Data Center/Cloud provider networks can become significant bottlenecks that interrupt the seamless delivery of high-resolution content.  Cedexis customers have embraced a strategy of using multiple CDNs and/or cloud providers to avoid single points of failure or congestion.  These strategies are commonly referred to as “Multi -CDN” or “Hybrid-CDN” architectures and bring together the best that each partner has to offer through real-time, data-driven, global traffic management between the public providers or private data centers.

“With video representing two thirds of Internet traffic todayand growing, it is clear that new strategies are needed to deliver the quality of experience end users have become used to from broadcast TV services.  Delivering a world-class video experience over the shared Internet requires a depth of Internet performance visibility and real-time, data-driven traffic management that only Cedexis brings together,” said Robert Malnati, VP of Marketing & Business Development at Cedexis.

Cedexis customers can now easily benefit from the unique insight provided by the Cedexis Radar real-user Internet performance monitoring community, by having their video player client software – be it from a website, mobile app, smart TV or connected gaming console – “talk” directly to the Cedexis global platform.  Alternatively, enterprises can connect their Content Management Systems (CMS) to Cedexis’ platform to make them aware of Internet traffic conditions and outages.

Cedexis’ expertise in Internet video delivery is being well recognized by leading industry associations in both the US and EU.
