TEMPE, Ariz.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jun 5, 2018--Limelight Networks (Nasdaq: LLNW), a global leader in digital content delivery, today announced that Limelight’s award-winning SmartPurge recently removed 1.1 billion cached objects totaling 612 terabytes of data across Limelight’s global network in 123 milliseconds, its fastest single purge to-date.

When a purge takes too long to process, users are served stale or damaged content. Outdated information is publicized, corrupted files are downloaded, compliance issues arise and brand integrity can be severely compromised. Limelight’s SmartPurge removes individual items or large volumes of content from anywhere in the world in milliseconds and provides instantaneous confirmation reports that content has been completely removed. Industry-leading features include:

Near Real-Time Speed: Purged objects are invalidated or deleted in under 2 seconds. Flexibility: Many options are available for performing purges by API and in Limelight’s Control Portal, including: by pattern matching, targeting content labelled with custom tags, specific content types, single URLs or objects and entire directories. Detailed Verification: Comprehensive confirmation reports are provided within 20 seconds of the purge being submitted.
