“Shopcada is an e-commerce platform. We want the visitors to our customers’ websites to not have to wait for them to load and to make purchases as efficiently as possible”

To meet these needs, a powerful content delivery network was required with points of presence in both Asia and the largest hubs around the world.

The task

Even at the launch stage of the project, Shopcada understood that the service would need a proven and reliable content delivery network. It was then that they became customers of one of the largest CDN providers in the world. However, over the 12 years of the company’s operation, the customer traffic passing through their services has grown significantly and the requirements for the infrastructure have increased, so they wanted to reduce the costs associated with it.

“As our traffic began to grow, we started looking for cost-effective ways to deliver content. The provider we used did the job perfectly. We’ve really enjoyed flawless collaboration over the years. However, today, many providers boast superior performance, and then the price becomes the deciding factor. And we wanted to save money”

Shopcada tried many times to switch vendors for a more profitable one: “We tried many different service providers and were not completely satisfied, so we remained customers of the same vendor for many years, despite the higher cost.”

To select a new provider, the Shopcada team compared the performance of popular CDNs on the independent service cdnperf.com. “G-Core Labs caught our attention there. We did a test run and were pleased with both the delivery speed of our customers’ content and the excellent price,” says Ethan Cheong.

The results

Since moving to G-Core Labs, the Shopcada team has managed not only to dramatically reduce infrastructure budgets, but also to maintain superior performance on their customers’ websites.

“The technical support made a special impression on us. This is another strong point of G-Core Labs,” summed up Ethan Cheong.
