RockYou is the leading provider of social applications and widgets for social networks, seeing approximately 80 million unique visits a month and over 170 million widget views every single day.
One of RockYou’s primary business concerns is being able to scale and deliver high performing experiences flawlessly – without having to deal with the infrastructure challenges that come with that. Akamai does just that, removing the complexities so RockYou can deliver the best online experiences possible to their customers.
Akamai also provides their Internet expertise and insight into new solutions to help RockYou move their business faster forward. Initially, RockYou engaged with Akamai for conventional CDN services, but as their business and technology evolved, so did their needs – and their relationship with Akamai evolved to meet those needs. RockYou now leverages Akamai to facilitate a lot of different types of their technical requirements – such as dynamic serving of content – and Akamai continues to come up with new solutions that are both scalable and cost effective so that RockYou can continue to innovate.
