Yahoo acquires content delivery startup ‘PeerCDN’

Washington, Dec. 18: Yahoo has acquired content delivery network provider PeerCDN in a bid to resolve its mail issues.

PeerCDN’s technology delivers site resources like images, videos and downloads via a peer-to-peer network of people currently visiting a website using WebRTC, real-time communication technology, instead of using an additional software, TechCrunch reports.

This reduces some of the bandwidth costs of the website provider by letting visitors share the burden, the report added. (ANI)
