CDN optimization is about end-to-end content delivery at the lowest cost per gigabyte while maximizing QoS.
Content delivery is a race to zero – no matter how big a discount you got last week, someone else is probably finding a better, faster or cheaper solution. That’s us

Phil Wiser, former CTO, Sony Corporation of America
“RampRate helped us understand the differences between vendors and worked with us to create the methodology, define the metrics and utilize the proper QoS tools needed to choose the vendor best suited to our needs. RampRate knows this business better than anyone. We literally months of time and found the right provider.”
Paul Santana, Manager of Data Center Operations, eBay
“RampRate was a risk-free proposition money-wise. If they didn’t save or create us at least twice their initial fee we’d get a full refund. And with 100 big-name clients, there had to be something there. But I was worried that in negotiating lower rates they might undermine my key relationships. When they came in and said they could carve out 27% savings and optimizing contracts, I thought it was impossible without undermining key relationships. But they hit that number and the relationships are stronger than ever.”
Michael Montalto, Accenture
“I have had the pleasure of working with the crew at RampRate several times over the last several years. Each time they have saved significant time in negotiating and closing contracts for data center space and managed services, which provided at least 20% savings over what we could have done alone. The RampRate team are extremely knowledgeable in this space and always bring innovation and out-of-the-box thinking to the table.”
Dean Nelson, Vice President of Global Foundation Services, eBay
“I knew I was leaving a bit on the table in our outsourced contracts. But the corporate mandate is growth and innovation, and when further contract improvement seemed to be marginal, my team’s first priorities had to move elsewhere. We can count on RampRate to be precise, timely and create millions in value.”
Ian Rodgers – CEO Beats Music
“When we first contacted RampRate, we were happy with our current provider but unsure of their ability to scale with our growth. We turned to RampRate for help in sorting out the market specifically as it relates to our needs for scalability and performance. The difficult part for us was making the final decision to split with our current provider (with whom I’ve done many years of business) or move on the deal RampRate had put together for us. Our previous provider couldn’t touch the price or level of service I was receiving with RampRate and in the end it was a no-brainer. Within 30 hours of our decision-making, we were fully installed and up and running. Not only did RampRate save us an incredible amount of time, resources, and money, but also we know we have the best possible solution for our needs now and far beyond.”
