The acquisition will help Limelight advance its strategy as an edge-enabled SaaS solutions provider.
Limelight Networks, a provider of content delivery services and AppOps at the edge, has completed the acquisition of Moov Corporation, which does business as Layer0.
This acquisition is a significant step in advancing Limelight’s strategy as an edge enabled SaaS solutions provider as Layer0’s tools deliver sub-second web apps and APIs through an all-in-one Jamstack platform.

We have a refined strategy and a comprehensive operating plan focused on evolving Limelight into a leading provider of content delivery services and AppOps at the edge for technology outcome buyers. This is a $37bn market and our integrated edge solutions offer superior performance versus current point solutions.”
Ajay Kapur, CTO of Limelight and former CEO of Layer0, added: “Our entire team is looking forward to this combination. Our product roadmap aspires to provide the most robust AppOps solution for Web Apps and APIs and we have accelerated our product innovation investments to achieve this market leadership.”
