Perry Wu will continue to lead the existing team, who will remain after the acquisition. They will operate from San Francisco in conjunction with Tata Communications’ global CDN team.

“With this acquisition, we are able to combine our global infrastructure with BitGravity’s CDN technology and infrastructure to create a larger global footprint and a more efficient cost base.
