NEW YORK (BUSINESS WIRE) Mirror Image Internet, a leading provider of content delivery solutions powered by a patented global network, today announced the availability of its Edge Computing Framework (ECF), enabling businesses to quickly and easily execute custom edge logic on Mirror Image's content delivery network. Mirror Image's ECF can detect a wide range of conditions and settings associated with online visitors and execute logic which drives actions in real time at the edge of the network, increasing scalability while shortening response times.

Customized edge logic is created and deployed across Mirror Image's global content delivery network through a configuration process that is faster, simpler, and less error-prone than other approaches that require customers to write new code. ECF also eliminates platform and architecture restrictions associated with alternate approaches.

Mirror Image is also announcing the availability of packaged solutions that execute in conjunction with ECF, including packaged solutions for online ad targeting, pixel tracking, geo-targeting, content rotation, mobile device re-direct, robot detection, and others.

"The traditional approach to edge computing offered by CDNs simply does not work for all organizations and applications," said James G. Hart, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Mirror Image Internet. "Meeting the demand for fast, simple, and hassle-free Edge Computing has driven the development of our Edge Computing Framework. We can deploy highly customized in-session logic across our global content delivery network for our customers faster and more easily than any other vendor."

Many web applications contain session logic that determines various attributes associated with each visitor, and subsequently executes customized actions for each visitor in real time, for example to present a targeted ad based on the visitor's browsing history, or to display the appropriate content based on the visitor's location. For some of these applications, the use of a CDN is required to achieve scalability and low latency to accommodate increased or spiky traffic, diverse geographic activity, or compliance with Service Level Agreements with customers and partners. For these situations, the CDN must provide the ability to execute Edge Computing on its network.
