Tremendous increase in new logo bookings and significant adoption of China Acceleration leads to highest revenue and operating profit in CDNetworks’ 12 year history
San Jose, Calif. – June 27, 2012 – Comparing the first half of 2012 to the same period in 2011, CDNetworks, the only multinational content delivery network with local expertise and infrastructure inside mainland China and across six continents, increased new logo bookings in both the US and Europe by 324%. This terrific growth in new business as well as existing customer renewals and add-ons contributed to the highest revenue and operating profit in CDNetworks 12 year history. CDNetworks is now accelerating performance for more than 17,500 active global websites, providing a faster and better experience for online users of shopping, banking, gaming, social networking, travel, entertainment, and eCommerce sites.
“We can reach over 99% of the world within a few milliseconds,” said Jeff Kim, Chief Operating Officer, CDNetworks Americas & EMEA. “As demonstrated by our tremendous growth over the past year, our customers are expanding their online offerings in both established and emerging markets including China, Russia, India, Brazil, and the Middle East. However, this growth in new business has not come at the expense of our existing customers. CDNetworks continues to earn high marks on customer service with 99% of support tickets handled by tier one and two support with 75% resolved by our dedicated in-house tier one support team.”
As the only global CDN with local hubs in mainland China, 21% of new customers and 10% of add-ons from existing customers included the CDNetworks’ China Acceleration offering in the first half of 2012. New customers include a well-known luxury retail brand, a high-end travel experience site, and a large global investment and online trading bank based in Europe. Existing customers who added the China service include a premier online luxury fashion destination and enterprise collaboration site HighQ.
"Global organisations are becoming increasingly dependent on cloud-based solutions and, by using CDNetworks, we’re now able to give them the high performance they expect from anywhere in the world,” said Saviz Izadpanah, IT Director, HighQ.
“If companies want to reach customers in China, they are better off partnering with a CDN that has local infrastructure in China,” said Jim Davis, Senior Analyst, Networks & Media, 451 Research. “This will not only reduce latency in loading websites or completing transactions, but can also help in the management of the complex logistical and regulatory challenges that exist in China.”
In addition to adding new customers and keeping existing customers happy, CDNetworks has expanded its’ global network with pops in Columbia, Brazil, Chile, Thailand, Malaysia, Vietnam and Taiwan connecting with more than 100 pops on six continents.
