Today (on July 10, 2012), Internap Network Services Corporation
, one of the leading providers of intelligent IT infrastructure services, announced
that Sahara Force India, the Silverstone, UK-based Formula One racing team had moved its website ForceIndiaF1.com to Internap and obtained extremely good performance improvements.
This website launched in 2007 experienced a huge surge in the traffic over the years owing to its increasing popularity, and faced downtime and latency issues when traffic peaked during the race weekends. To improve the uptime, ensure performance and get scalability to manage the traffic, Sahara Force not only deployed Internap’s managed hosting solution, but also added Internap’s route-optimized Performance IP and Content Delivery Network services to its portal. Implementing of these services has improved the website performance by almost 50% and Internap’s SLA provides the Racing Company with 100% uptime guarantee.
Both Sahara Force India and Internap were happy with the deal and after deploying Internap’s performance packages Sahara Force India found that the average time spent by users on its website had grown by 52% along with a 16% increase in number of pages viewed per visit.
