Imgur just reported it is now getting over one billion page views a day, a portion of which is served through EdgeCast's CDN service. EdgeCast said that Imgur haas been using EdgeCasts's CDN services since June of 2011, after a huge growth in its uploads spurred the company to turn on its services.
