Background

FullSIX is a group of communication agencies created to help businesses adapt their operations to the digital age. The group has been at the forefront of innovation for over 15 years, leveraging new technology to drive growth in France and across Europe. Ekino is the group’s technology subsidiary; its 250 employees in France and Poland develop leading-edge systems for web applications. The company mainly provides system development, data analysis, and hosting services. Its customers include major French multinationals—including a French car maker with global operations. Ekino, a FullSIX Group company, hosts websites for this customer that must meet demanding technical specifications, such as fast page load times for users anywhere in the world.

CDNetworks has been serving Ekino, a FullSIX Group company, since 2008, initially through Panther Express which was subsequently acquired by CDNetworks. Even today, the collaboration between the two technology businesses is still going strong with tangible benefits for Ekino’s customers.

The solution

Thanks to CDNetworks’ global presence, Ekino, a FullSIX Group company, can deliver the web performance that its customers need anywhere in the world, with fast load times for their web pages and applications—regardless of the volume of content to be displayed. And all that comes with substantial cost savings:

  • Bandwidth through CDNetworks is significantly cheaper than the individual rate that Ekino, FullSIX Group company, previously paid;
  • By going through CDNetworks, Ekino, a FullSIX Group company, can transfer more than a Gigabit of data without needing to purchase additional IT infrastructure.

“CDNetworks provides the ideal mix of robust performance, reasonable cost, useful reporting, and high-quality service for web applications with large data volumes,” said Axel Pavageau, Head of the IT Systems, Networks & Hosting Department at Ekino, a FullSIX Group company

The results

The staff at Ekino, a FullSIX Group company, especially appreciate being able to configure some of CDNetworks’ services themselves through CDNetworks’ web portal. That means they can customize the configuration to support responsive design, for example—an essential tool for ensuring the same high-quality content display on computers, smartphones, and tablets.

“Not all CDNs allow for customized configuration, which is one of CDNetworks’ clear strengths,” Axel said.
