Should companies consider employing a dual CDN vendor strategy? The short answer to this question is...it depends. Some important factors to consider when evaluating this strategy are the amount of content delivered, your tolerance for CDN downtime, geographic delivery coverage, capacity required and the type of traffic (video, files images or transactions). Is it worth the hassle of managing two vendors? If your goal is 100% uptime, controlling costs and utilizing the special benefits of different providers, than the answer is yes.
