    Instart Logic has been ranked by Business Insider as No. 1 among the 17 best startups to work for in America


    The technology built by Instart Logic claims to resolve emerging application delivery challenges in mobile, multi-device and multi-cloud environments. With a foundation of a traditional content delivery network, the company has built a cloud-client platform that helps deliver websites faster and more securely.

    The Instart Logic service is in between an origin server and end client browsers. It is deployed like a traditional CDN, through DNS changes. The technology of the service analyzes web pages from an origin server and prioritizes which parts of the page (HTML / JavaScript / Images) are broken into small fragments and sent to end devices. The company claims this software-defined application delivery approach improves web page load times.
