Yottaa, a Boston-based startup trying to make websites better distributing performance and security infrastructure across the globe, has raised a $16 million venture capital led by Intel Capital.
The promise behind Yottaa is perhaps especially relevant in a world where so many people consume websites on their mobile devices. Your wired desktop might be able to handle poorly built websites, but a smartphone browser on a congested network is going to have problems. Yottaa targets small and medium-sized business that can’t afford to pay CDN providers like Akamai (s akam) or but expensive gear for application acceleration.
