Alamy, the world’s largest online stock photo site, has extended its server infrastructure to Netmagic’s co–location center in Chennai, India. The purpose of the partnership is to make searching for images on the site – across Asia – as fast as possible.
The news follows hot-on-the-heels of the recent data center upgrades in the West and East Coasts of America – in New York and Los Angeles respectively.
Rachel Wakefield, head of sales at Alamy said: “Asia presents an exciting market for our brand, and the next logical progression; we’re keen to gain a real foothold. A key part of our service is fast search across all the markets we operate in, so we are delighted to be able to offer this in Asia.”
Alamy already has an established back–office and technical team based at Technopark in Trivandrum, India. The team there is playing a key role in developing the company's global presence.
“Netmagic is excited to partner with Alamy and enable its business in Asia by providing a highly available and redundant datacenter infrastructure. Our carrier–neutral Chennai datacenter with highly redundant burstable internet connectivity will ensure that Alamy customers enjoy low latency levels and high uptimes, thereby improving the overall customer experience.” stated, Sunil Gupta, President & COO, Netmagic Solutions.
