Digital adds up savings
ApplianSys is pleased to announce that Digital Solutions Provider (DSP), Saudi Arabia, has selected a CACHEBOX solution to optimise bandwidth usage and support its growing customer base.
DSP provides a range of managed, hosting and other IT services to dozens of large commercial clients, each with hundreds of users. As a result, its 1Gbps bandwidth connection supports thousands of online users.
But with plans to rapidly expand its customer base next year, Network Manager Ali Al-Mansour knew that bandwidth was a problem. Their existing connection would struggle to support so many new users, especially during popular or peak usage times.
Simply buying more bandwidth would provide additional capacity throughout the day, but outside peak times that extra capacity would essentially be wasted – delivering a very low return on investment (ROI).
So, Ali compared caching solutions as an alternative that would deliver a higher ROI, and found CACHEBOX to be ideal.
“By caching HTTP requests, DSP can save bandwidth and support more online users – all without compromising the quality of service to customers. In fact, by serving cached content locally, DSP’s customers will enjoy a much faster service experience,” explains CACHEBOX consultant David Zangouras.
Established in 2003, DSP is a leading IT services provider based in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. The ISP has worked on dozens of large development projects providing a range of IT services including IP provisioning, data centre operations, sales and marketing, onsite operation and maintenance.
