Internap Customer Jolokia Networks Wins Nucleus Research Technology ROI Award

Honor recognizes Jolokia’s 5,306 percent return on investment using Internap’s Content Delivery Network with route optimization and TCP acceleration


Internap Network Services Corporation (NASDAQ: INAP), a provider of intelligent IT Infrastructure services, announced that its customer Jolokia Networks has been recognized by Nucleus Research as a recipient of its 2012 Technology ROI Award. The annual award honors companies whose deployment of IT solutions has produced a positive, bottom-line financial return on investment.

Nucleus Research analysts determined that Internap enabled Jolokia Networks, a provider of custom, cloud-based solutions, to deliver highly-available, reliable web applications and content to geographically dispersed clients around the world, while dramatically reducing technology costs. Jolokia’s implementation of Internap’s IT Infrastructure services resulted in ROI of 5,306 percent and an average annual benefit of more than $722,000 dollars.

“Jolokia’s deployment of Internap’s IT Infrastructure services is a great example of how technology investments that are closely aligned to business goals can deliver both significant customer value and ROI,” said Rebecca Wettemann, VP of Research at Nucleus Research.

Jolokia is using Internap’s global Content Delivery Network (CDN), along with its Performance IP™ and Accelerated IP (XIP™) services. Internap’s CDN supplies a robust, globally-distributed network for cost-effective delivery of Jolokia’s broad range of file-based content and rich media. The CDN incorporates Internap’s Performance IP connectivity service, which leverages numerous carrier backbones worldwide, as well as patented route-optimization technology to ensure that Jolokia’s Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) based applications are delivered over the best-performing Internet path at all times. Working seamlessly with Performance IP and the CDN, Internap’s XIP service is a TCP acceleration solution that further enhances data transmission from the application to the end user, improving performance by as much as four times.

“Using Internap’s services, we’ve seen dramatic improvements of up to 200 percent for web application and content performance, especially when users are downloading and viewing from geographically disparate locations,” said Mark Pace, CTO at Jolokia. “This is critical to our business, which relies on the ability to deliver a high-performance, seamless web experience to customers around the world. We were able to achieve these performance and reliability gains while avoiding the costs associated with purchasing hardware, expanding our data center presence or leasing additional bandwidth.”

“We are thrilled that Jolokia has been recognized by Nucleus Research as a recipient of this year’s Technology ROI Award,” said Pete Mastin, vice president of Internap’s IP and CDN business unit. “The flexibility of our high-performance IT Infrastructure platform allows customers like Jolokia to cost-effectively mix and match the services that best meet their specific requirements – while keeping end users connected and their data and businesses flowing.”
