"Nissan is a leader in the automobile manufacturing industry not only in the Japanese market but also around the world.

"With Nissan's adoption of Limelight Networks CDN services, they will be able to provide increasing numbers of visitors to their site with a rich variety of content, without stress to their internal infrastructure."
The robust and scalable infrastructure (http://www.limelightnetworks.com/network.htm) of the Limelight Network CDN was engineered to meet the challenges of delivering rich media to today's Internet users, by meeting the challenge of the four dimensions of content delivery: increasing object size, entire content libraries, ever-growing audience size, and the immediate availability of every library object, regardless of popularity. Nissan selected Limelight Networks because of the auto manufacturer's "long-tail" library of content, and its need for high-availability and quick response while distributing high bit rate, high quality media files.
