Leading Chinese CDN to Use & Resell Gomez Solutions to Optimize Web Application Performance across China

Lexington, Massachusetts, July 21, 2009 -- Gomez, Inc. (www.gomez.com), the leader in Web application experience management, today extended its business partnership with ChinaCache, a leading content delivery network (CDN) service provider in China. The parties signed a new, multi-year partnership agreement in which ChinaCache will utilize as well as resell Gomez`s industry-leading solutions being adopted by businesses in China to optimize the performance and availability of their Web and mobile applications.

With the Gomez solutions, ChinaCache`s domestic and multi-national customers will be able to test and measure Web application performance from their end-users` perspective across all provinces and regions in China, helping them find and fix business-impacting issues that often occur anywhere in the complex Chinese Web application delivery chain.

ChinaCache will also use Gomez’s solutions to monitor the performance of its own content delivery and acceleration services. This will help validate and promote its performance promises to customers and provide a competitive differentiator.

"Ensuring consistent and high-quality Web application delivery to China`s enormous Internet population is a true challenge both for local as well as international businesses seeking to enter the China market," said Richard Xu, COO of ChinaCache. "Gomez`s Web application performance management solutions and its vast network in China enable unparalleled insight into performance, all the way to end-users. No other provider delivers such comprehensive coverage. Gomez solutions provide an effective tool for ChinaCache to help businesses optimize the performance and availability of their Web applications in China."

"Content delivery networks play a critical role in quality Web application delivery through services such as Web acceleration, file transfer and streamed content. Given the complexities of China`s Web infrastructure, CDN services are crucial in ensuring the end-user’s experience," said Tom Meusel, Gomez`s VP of Worldwide Channels. "With this long-term partnership, ChinaCache has a distinct competitive edge and is positioning itself for leadership in the Chinese market."

Gomez recently announced it is sizably extending its Chinese network, making it the largest and most comprehensive Web application performance testing and monitoring network in China. Gomez currently provides Web application experience management solutions to over 50 Chinese customers and partners, and hundreds of its multi-national customers test Web performance using Gomez’s China network.
