PIXNET goes faster with CACHEBOX

December 03, 2009

ApplianSys today announced that PIXNET, a leading Taiwanese social network has selected CACHEBOX to deliver a fast, uninterrupted service to users.

Rapid growth in popularity had put a lot of pressure on the PIXNET network which their existing deployment of Squid caching servers was struggling to reduce.

Now, one CACHEBOX230 working alongside the squid servers will service all requests for image and video content. Early trials conducted by ApplianSys partner Alopex, demonstrated the single CACHEBOX230 supporting up to 250Mbps of PIXNETs traffic and making a real impact on the reducing the load on its content servers.

“Putting Squid on some hardware gives you a powerful web cache right? Wrong,” says Vedrana Jovanoic, CACHEBOX APAC Channel Manager. “Building a powerful, easy to use and easy to maintain caching server is hard work. That’s why ApplianSys have spent years refining CACHEBOX so you can grow your business and not your IT worries.”

PIXNET Digital Media Corporation (www.pixnet.net) is one of the top five blog service providers and photo gallery sites in Taiwan. PIXNET is an Internet community business of Cite Media Holding Group.

Alopex provide information security, web security analysis and deployment services to clients across Taiwan.
