Boulder, CO (PRWEB) September 9, 2009
Lijit Networks, Inc., the leading provider of search and discovery tools for online publishers, announced today it has chosen CDNetworks as its exclusive provider for global content delivery. This collaboration will dramatically increase the speed, reliability and scalability of Lijit's services, used by thousands of blogs and commercial websites worldwide.
"Readers interact with Lijit's technology installed on our publisher's sites over 12 million times per day," said Todd Vernon, CEO and Founder of Lijit. "At our size and growth rate, providing robust service reliability and performance demanded the deployment of a global content delivery network. CDNetworks' global reach, responsive support and flexible integration team proved they were the clear choice to support our publisher network and its audience."
Lijit's social graph search technology extends beyond the capabilities of typical embedded site search systems by discovering and including content from the publisher's site as well as their array of social content (e.g. Twitter, YouTube, Flickr, Delicious, Facebook, LinkedIn, Digg, etc).
"Lijit's service needs are a perfect match with CDNetworks' content delivery solutions," said John Milburn, president, CDNetworks International. "We have worked with Lijit to build a custom failover solution, which allows them to deliver their embedded search service without degraded page load performance, should their service ever become unavailable. This is of the utmost importance to their publishers and we are pleased to play a key role in providing this critical component."
