In his new role Mr. Loveless will bring his expertise to the new group as it looks to remedy a litany of issues experienced by traditional CDN providers. This includes a more extant focus that helps reduce operational costs, powered by a fully compatible interface.
According to Mr. Loveless in an exclusive statement to Finance Magnates regarding the move: “For the past decade or so I’ve worked in the latency sensitive world of high frequency trading, first as a trader and then later as a solutions provider. But really, my career has been about finding new ways to rapidly interconnect and distribute data. With Edgemesh I’ve found a team with the same goals, but playing on a MUCH larger field – the entire web.”
“Companies today are spending a fortune serving content to users, and we’re still using the same technology from 1998! With Edgemesh we’re changing all of that, an adding seamless peer-to-peer style mesh networking for content providers. That helps users access data faster, it helps operators lower the costs and it helps us move one step closer to a distributed, free and open internet. I couldn’t be more excited to be here,” he added.
