We have seen excellent results from the unique CyberHound caching services. We are serving 70-80% of all internet data from cache – saving about a 50Mbp/s internet link – we are getting great value.

3 separate caches
By maintaining 3 separate caches there is zero performance contamination from other caching services – a unique benefit for schools
Ranked # 1
The Centre for Learning and Performance Technologies has ranked YouTube the top critical learning tool – proving the need for reliable, fast and inexpensive access to this content in schools.
Large Data Reductions
YouTube content typically consumes 30-70% of a school's overall internet data usage (without caching). After caching this is reduced to 5-10%.
Over 265 supported formats
CyberHound’s YouTube Cache supports over 265 separate formats of YouTube videos. It also supports multiple browser versions and operating systems.
Pre-caching for teachers
Pre-caching allows a teacher to prepare for a lesson and ensure immediate optimal access.
Real-time caching service delivers content to other users as soon as a YouTube video is being viewed by another user – i.e. the whole video does not have to download to the first user for the benefits to be seen.
CyberHound enables schools to leverage YouTube in the classroom while maintaining safe access policies and ensuring reliable access to videos.
