CDN by G‑Core Labs.
Each month, Awok.com is visited by millions of customers who are browsing over ten million webpages showing the goods.
95 % of the audience are residents of the United Arab Emirates and Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
To withstand a serious load on the resource, a reliable CDN provider with a node in the region was much needed.
“We had a contract with another CDN provider, but despite the quality of the services provided the price did not suit us”
The company’s technical experts began looking for a new CDN provider with a top-shelf performance and more favorable rates.
It is critical for an online store to enable its customers to choose and buy goods instantaneously, without delays. Any degradation of service and even a short-term failure in its operation reduces website traffic and sales.
Thus, it was required to switch the provider in such a way that Awok.com visitors won’t notice it.
“Unfortunately, the architecture of our web application did not allow us to take advantage of such great feature as object prefetch, so we gradually redirected traffic to G‑Core Labs’ CDN cache servers in Dubai and thus ensured the smooth operation of Awok.com website.
We were looking for a CDN provider with the best value for money. G‑Core Labs meets these requirements, and the availability of a server in the United Arab Emirates was the deciding factor in choosing the contractor”
