OKWAVE RELIES ON LIMELIGHT’S ORCHESTRATE PLATFORM TO DELIVER SECURE CONTENT TO MORE THAN 30 MILLION USERS WORLDWIDE

OKWAVE is Japan’s first and largest online Q&A platform where users help each other solve problems in a question-and-answer format. OKWAVE has 31 million users and thousands of new customers joining every month who turn to its database of more than 35 million entries for information.

OKWAVE’S CHALLENGE:

With such dramatic growth, OKWAVE needed to scale up its content delivery capacity and ensure responsiveness on all the different internet connected devices its customers use. Equally important, the management team wanted a solution that would ensure stable delivery while also keeping costs down.

"The Limelight Networks staff responds immediately when we contact them. Interactions like these give us confidence that in the unlikely event that we do have an issue, we can count on them to respond quickly. This is one of the major reasons we went with Limelight."

 

"We tested the CDN services offered by each vendor to verify their actual performance. For instance, we measured response time every 5 minutes and carefully monitored the time zones which showed delays. When releasing new content, we verified how quickly the new files showed up on the delivery server. In the end, Limelight Networks CDN Services delivered the best results."
