Music and Video Media File Sharing Start-Up Company

This company was created with the vision of becoming a web-based multimedia center accessible via any cell phone or computer. Based offshore, they needed a reliable, scalable point of presence in the US, with administrators in the same time zone who could keep the site up and running. Sudden peaks of usage would overload underpowered systems, ruining the user’s experience.

Challenge #1

Their previous cloud based hosting was slow and not scalable for the sudden jumps in user base that came with marketing pushes

ENKI Solution
Comnputing Utility cloud service scales from .01 to 100s of servers, reliably

Their service kept pace with sudden spikes in user demand to 200,000 users and more as they added a FaceBook app

Challenge #2

They did not know how to optimize their application to take advantage of the cloud and cross performance barriers

ENKI Solution
Virtual Private Data Center Paradigm plus full operations management, including architecture consulting

Their application runs unchanged in the Computing Utility cloud

Challenge #3

Startup financing demands no upfront investment in operations and best pricing

ENKI Solution
ENKI's services enable pay-as-you-go computing and operations; tiered pricing ended up being lower than Amazon EC2

All hosting and operations charges are an operating expense which customer knew was best-in-class
