Speedera Boosts Performance and Scalability While Saving Infrastructure Costs
SANTA CLARA, Calif.-June 24, 2002 -- Speedera Networks Inc., the emerging leader in global content delivery services, today announced that DoubleClick (NASDAQ: DCLK), www.doubleclick.com, the leading provider of marketing tools for advertisers, direct marketers and Web publishers, selected Speedera`s content delivery network (CDN) to improve delivery performance of its Web content, while significantly cutting costs associated with ad delivery.
With Speedera`s global edge network, DoubleClick receives additional points of presence and improved scalability to handle unpredictable traffic spikes that are generated by successful marketing campaigns. Also, Speedera`s Origin Site Integration feature allows DoubleClick to control the utilization of Speedera`s delivery network. DoubleClick can use its existing ad serving infrastructure in addition to the Speedera global edge infrastructure, with delivery from both sources being managed by the Speedera Global Traffic Management system.
"DoubleClick is absolutely committed to providing the most reliable and highest quality of service to our customers," said Mok Choe, DoubleClick`s Chief Information Officer. "Speedera combines a content delivery network with powerful logging systems and management tools that will help us to extract detailed data on DART network performance."
"Over the past three months we have seen an increase in online advertising infrastructure companies choosing to outsource their content distribution," said Ajit Gupta, CEO of Speedera Networks. "With the win of the DoubleClick account, we have become a critical player in providing content delivery for the online marketing industry, allowing these firms to cut costs while increasing their focus on their core business."
