Media and Entertainment

Consumers of streaming content are acutely sensitive to quality of service. Even when the weak link is the ISP or CDN, if they’re seeing your logo, you’re the one they’ll blame. To protect your reputation — and ultimately your market share — you need a clear picture of how your content is reaching your audience. Kentik measures performance on real traffic and provides powerful NPM analytics that let you identify and troubleshoot issues before they affect your viewers.

“When you’re handling several hundred gigabits of network traffic each second, effective DDoS detection and traffic engineering insights are critical. At Dailymotion we’ve been looking to replace our open source tools with a solution that can handle our volume and is fast, flexible, scalable, and easy to use. After testing several market-leading systems we chose Kentik Detect, which provides us with the metrics and insights we need to understand everything about our traffic.”

Christian de Balorre, Network Architect, dailymotion

“With Kentik, we are now analyzing our network traffic and, at the same time, optimizing it for both the listener and the artist. Nothing is more frustrating than not having a solid connection to whatever service you’re using, and Kentik incredibly helps us with that.”

James Kelty, Senior Director of Network Operations and Engineering, Pandora


“Kentik has given us the insight and visibility that we haven’t been able to achieve through other network performance monitoring products or open source tools. With over 100 million average monthly unique visitors coming to Yelp, we see traffic reaching many gigabits per second, so it’s critical for us to be able to look deeply into all network traffic in a real time and gain real insight. That’s where Kentik has helped. We can see things we simply couldn’t see before.”

Sam Eaton, VP Engineering, Operations & Infrastructure, Yelp
