Empowering Distributed Compute
Intelligent Content Delivery at our Platform Edge
The nuu:bit Distributed Compute Environment (DCE) offers an easy, flexible solution for executing code at the network edge nearest to the end user. Our DCE allows you to develop and deploy your applications faster and cost less. Our platform provides the following unique key features:
Older site acceleration methods, such as Dynamic Site Acceleration (DSA), are able to improve some aspects of website performance, such as Connect and SSL times. However, if performance is degraded by the application itself, then DSA can do very little to improve the end user experience as measured by stats like Time to First Byte (TTFB), etc. Application performance may sometimes be improved by adding capacity, but this can be an expensive, time-consuming, proposition for an application owner.
Does your CDN give you direct access to control how the service responds to local users? nnu:bit does and allows you to distribute your application close to end users. Take a look at our environment and trial our performance – First 30 Days Free!

The nuu:bit Cyber Security solution is the nuu:bit Cybersecurity suite. The Web Application Firewall or WAF is a customer managed WAF which protects a site from attacks. The WAF is an easy to deploy and easy to manage solution.
The nuu:bit’s WAF (Web Application Firewall) contains three key differentiators:
The nuu:bit Cyber Security solution is robust solution because it does not rely on a signature base like an antivirus and most WAFs, thus cannot be circumvented by an “unknown” attack pattern. The nuu:bit Cyber Security solution has a user-defined rulesets built into the platform in addition to the core ruleset which is extensible. The The nuu:bit Cyber Security solution solution can check different values, such as URLs, request parameters, cookies, headers, or the POST body. Automatic whitelist creation makes it easy deploy the firewall upstream and rule out 100 percent of false positives.
The nuu:bit Cyber Security solution has analytics to quickly view WAF events, event heat map to identify the attacker’s location as well as detailed event logs.
At nuu:bit, we offer a global CDN caching platform which allows our customers to define the following:
Caching static content (like images, CSS, JS and video files) on what was known as the edge caching has been around for a while and remains to be a stable and a very efficient technique to improve the performance of a website or mobile application.
Our CDN global caching system supports highly custom caching rules. These rules are a set of parameters that change the caching behavior of one or more URLs that match a pattern, specified as either a wildcard expression or a Perl-compatible regular expression.
One of the technologies nuu:bit uses is Varnish, which allows our customers to directly use domain-specific language called Varnish Configuration Language, or VCL for short. This will allow for complete and total custom caching.
The white labeling solution allows for you to create a branded CDN/content acceleration service to your customer.
At nuu:bit, we understand the importance of cybersecurity, and we have provided an easy way to manage SSL security. The nuu:bit portal supports full self-servicing for SSL certificates. This saves our customers valuable time. Moreover, nuu:bit doesn’t charge our customers for custom SSL certificates whether they are a wildcard or not.
Securely upload and manage your own SSL certificates to be associated with your domains using SNI feature.
We also offer a tightly integrated SSL solution from GlobalSign, a Certificate Authority provider, to protect your web resources within minutes (we call the feature “SSL Names”). We support a domain control verification using email, HTML Meta-tag or Email.
The nuu:bit platform supports instant purge of cached object via customer portal or API. This allows for support for the caching of your transient data allowing for a more dynamic and rich end user experience. Using our fast purge solution, >95% of object purge commands are completed within 2 seconds globally. The instant purge functionality and API access allow you to cache even short-lived content, such as forum/comment pages, news, frequently updated product pages, and etc.
At nuu:bit, we are on the same team with our customers! We pick up our part of the responsibility by providing our customers an easy and predictable way to update the configurations with a built-in security.
Following best practices for enterprise-grade systems that are designed to serve critical web and mobile resources, we have implemented the following features:
At nuu:bit, we work with the best of breed DNS provider NS1. NS1 provides the world’s most intelligent DNS and traffic management solution, enabling content owners and developers to take unparalleled control over their traffic and infrastructure. The nuu:bit portal has integrated NS1 into the portal to simplify management by creating a single pane of glass. Additionally, we have incorporated NS1 DNS analytics into our portal.
The nuu:bit platform provides one of the richest API libraries in the CDN industry to ensure efficient integration to adapt your existing code base and workflow. Our API options provide the developers with the ability and flexibility to control the configuration, automate the workflow, manage users, customizing data pulling and reporting for the dashboard, and improved security.
In development cycle of the nuu:bit platform, we took an API-first approach; therefore, everything in our portal is available via an API. Our APIs can be found at https://api.nuubit.net/. This includes the ability to update configurations, manage users, or pull data using our APIs.
The nuu:bit platform supports the ability for the raw log delivery in real time. Our log format is JSON based and provides a rich set of details for empowering deep offline analytics to meet any business objective.
The platform supports FTP, SFTP, S3 containers or ElasticSearch targets for remote log storage.
The nuu:bit Dynamic Site and Content Acceleration feature increase performance for a web property that generates content at origin or application APIs for mobile App.
We use Symmetric Dynamic Site Acceleration by default, which means minimum of two nuu:bit locations are involved in handling a request for PoP to PoP communication. The first location is closest to the end user (last-mile location) and the other closest to the customer origin (first-mile location). Additional intermedia nuu:bit locations can be involved if the network routing process detects a more optimal way between first- and last-mile locations.
DOTS (Dynamically Optimized Transport System) is the nuu:bit platform’s advanced and intelligent TCP congestion control algorithm designed specifically to improve last-mile Internet delivery. Our patent pending invention, outperforms existing CDN solutions by up to 3X.
DOTS does not require a software agent on the receiving end, as it is built with the focus to accelerate HTTP content delivery asymmetrically; this elegant yet powerful feature contrasts SDK’s requirement for special software to be compiled in the App that runs on the edge device. Leveraging DOTS, nuu:bit’s leading core technology with three key pending patents, we are sending data even faster and cheaper with ever increased efficiency. We gain 20% to 300% on web performance depending on the network conditions over the normal TCP protocol.
DOTS does not modify the payload (that is, it doesn’t perform any content optimization on transmitted data), and is very safe for complex web applications that might be sensitive to content alterations.
nuu:bit is always incorporating the best-in-class technologies. Eliminating latency at every step provides the nuu:bit the ability to consistently outperform other CDN providers. This is why we were an early adopter of Google’s new network transport protocol called QUIC.
Less is more with QUIC. The zero RTT QUIC combines the best features of UDP and TCP with modern security tools. The key difference between the typical secure TCP connection vs. QUIC is that a browser can immediately communicate to the CDN edge using zero RTT TLS. It is also more reliable than a pure UDP as QUIC also introduces features such as congestion control and automatic re-transmission.
End-users benefit from the following:
QUIC protocol is supported by Chrome, Chromium and Opera browsers. For more information about QUIC please find the following pages at the IETF.

The nuu:bit Device Edge SDK solution is edgy! The nuu:bit Device Edge SDK solution solution, as the nuu:bit edge device SDK (Software Development Kit), provides a set of libraries that enables the developers to speed up content delivery for applications running on the mobile devices. Increasing your App’s MAU and DAU by using the The nuu:bit Device Edge SDK solution, which accelerates the applications’ speed, security, and end-to-end control from the ingress point of the nuu:bit platform all the way to the true edge, the end-user device.
We send the network traffic through the nuu:bit SDK utilizing a specially designed networking protocol to provide acceleration to a given mobile application. We support:
