"Flash issues, company seems outdated"

What do you like best?

It's served us fairly well up until this point, pretty reliable as a CDN. Support is friendly.

What do you dislike?

We will now have to write a script using their API to re-encode our videos, a service that they should offer as a part of the product. This has made it very hard for us to upgrade to their HTML5 player, and in the meantime we are dealing with Flash issues. Recently a Flash update was put out that made our videos unplayable for a short while, unacceptable as videos are our main product and how we make money as a business.

The company overall seems outdated and I am worried what that means for us if we continue to use them in the future.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Consider another service. Pricing seems high for the product that they deliver.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use them as a CDN for our videos, and we store our videos on their platform.

"Functional order history CRM"

What do you like best?

Look and feel, ease of function, search options (you can search for a customers information a multitude of ways) and the site is easy to navigate.

What do you dislike?

it occasionally runs a little slow when logging in or doing a search. Everything else is great.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

This CRM is very helpful in tracking the shipping history of your products, even if done so through a third party. You are able to search your customers information through multiple forms of identification such as email address, or first and last name.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are able to track customers shipments through limelight by searching for their name, email address, etc. We are able to access tracking numbers through the CRM which is helpful. We can view a customers ordering history and future shipments that are in the process of being sent.

"Expensive for what you get and only somewhat worthwhile"

What do you like best?

Limelight is an easy platform to use. It gives you what you would expect for a basic CDN and works just fine.

What do you dislike?

I didn't like Limelight. Simply put, we paid too much for the benefit it gave us and the amount of traffic we got. When I came to the company I work for now, we were using Limelight to host our training videos. Reality is, for the traffic they receive, we were paying WAY TOO MUCH for the bandwidth and usage. It was difficult to cancel our subscription and I just didn't like the overall experience.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Look at more mainstream CDN products before you go with Limelight. Especially if you're using a system like Wordpress or a host that recommends a particular CDN, you should look at those products first.

"Limelight is good most of the time but it has some shortcomings."

What do you like best?

When things were static on our end, Limelight worked well. We only had 1 outage in ~2 yrs.

What do you dislike?

Changes would take a while to get through the system. Additionally the update times were not deterministic.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Trying to reduce page load times by using Limelight to host static JS content.

Furthermore, we also used Limelight to host video content.
