Internap Network Services Corporation (NASDAQ: INAP), a leading provider of end-to-end Internet business products and services,today announced that Jolokia Networks, an innovative hosting and virtualization provider, has selected Internap’s XIP™ with route-optimized Performance IP™, to improve Web performance for Jolokia’s worldwide customers. These customers include Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) companies, software developers, cloud-based providers and other organizations with high levels of bandwidth consumption.
“Our international customers have seen a significant performance improvement since we integrated Internap’s XIP into our cloud platform. For example, a customer in Scotland has seen its website performance nearly double in speed over previous levels,” said Mark Pace, chief technology officer at Jolokia Networks. “As a provider of both content delivery and hosting services, we serve a specialized customer base that requires an optimal Internet experience. The combination of Internap’s advanced IP routing capabilities and XIP gives us a competitive edge.”
XIP has been shown to improve Web traffic performance by up to 4 times and is the first acceleration-as-a-service offering of its kind to impact end-to-end traffic – from the application all the way to the end user. XIP complements Internap’s Performance IP route-optimized network, resulting in network and application optimization and a superior user experience. Performance IP delivers traffic across the best path among numerous global carrier networks with patented Managed Internet Route Optimizer™ (MIRO) technology.
“As hosting providers offer more dynamic applications and delivery models – such as e-commerce, SaaS and cloud-based services, the performance of the underlying network is becoming a top priority,” said Scott Hrastar, senior vice president of IP services at Internap. “Our worldwide IP network and XIP service can dramatically reduce latency and improve Internet performance to make these new delivery models a reality.”
