To this need, the client deployed Cedexis Openmix and Radar to maximize performance of a multi- CDN solution using four globally distributed CDNs. On behalf of ROBLOX, Openmix made 10’s of Millions unique decisions a day to route traffic to the best performing CDN and KPI’s. Furthermore, Cedexis Radar analyzed the data from the real end users on the ROBLOX imagination platform—providing the most unbiased source of data for evaluating Cloud and CDNs. “Cedexis Radar gave us instant visibility into CDN performance at a very granular level.
