"We had dozens of terabytes of photos and videos, and one day there was a need to optimize the loading of customer sites and deliver content anywhere in the world. Then we thought about using a content delivery network"

Initially, the company’s technical specialists tried to build their own CDN, but it turned out not to be quite so easy.

CTO Vigbo

Egor Kuryanovich

"We quickly realized that we were not keeping pace with the growth in the amount of data and traffic, so we decided to look for partners who could provide high-quality content distribution service to our customers"

What solution was needed?

The search for a contractor dragged on. There was an important requirement: the vendor must provide excellent performance not only in Russia and the CIS, where most of the platform’s customers are located, but also around the world.

CTO Vigbo

Egor Kuryanovich

"We tried several services, but since most of our customers are located in the CIS, and our customers’ customers can be located anywhere in the world, we had an important requirement: good coverage both in Russia and worldwide. At the end of 2019, after an unsuccessful cooperation with a popular global provider, we decided to try the G‑Core Labs CDN, and were pleasantly surprised by the coverage, ease of setup, quality of support, and attitude towards the product in general"

Now Vigbo distributes about 100 TB and processes hundreds of millions of requests per month from 60 locations around the world.

"This gives us a strong advantage over our competitors, both in Russia and globally"
