The ScaleEngine network actually consists of three distinct parts, each optimized for its specific role.
The Origin Web Cluster (OWC), where sites are actually hosted using the ScaleEngine Hosting Platform is optimized for running web application languages such as PHP and Ruby, and offer redundant load balanced replicated MySQL databases as well as large private memcache clusters.
The Content Distribution Network (CDN) is designed to quickly and effortlessly accelerate the delivery of media files.
The Edge Side Caching (ESC) Network provides in memory content acceleration, with geo-located distribution to the closest node.
Presented here are a number of diagrams that show the relationships and the transactions between the different parts of the ScaleEngine network.
