Back on August 1, 2014 DotWeekly.com broke the news that Microsoft was very likely getting ready to potentially be launching a CDN (content delivery network) with the name Sway, as they purchased the domain name Sway.com and filed a generalized trademark for the term Sway. Also around the time, they registered the domain names Sway-CDN.com / .net and Sway-INT.com / .net which tipped me off that Sway maybe a CDN.
Well, this morning I had noticed Microsoft has loaded up name servers on both Sway-CDN.com and the main domain name Sway.com using the Akamai Technologies services.
Sway.com “isn’t ready yet” at the time of this posting, but is resolving with a single line of text: Sign In
That hyperlinks to a login.Live.com link.
Sway-CDN.com is doing the same thing as Sway.com
So, Microsoft Sway is getting much closer to launching and I would expect something officially announced pretty soon. Maybe early next week?
