Twenga, a global online shopping comparison site, is using the services of Amsterdam-based Web host, LeaseWeb, to host its ‘heavy’ website. Twenga requires more than 100 dedicated servers, primarily to obtain all of the product data from eCommerce websites indexed by Twenga.
The dedicated servers are installed at EvoSwitch, a CO2-neutral data center.
Twenga’s shopping engine, which is not impacted by commercial deals, compares more than 70 million products in 100,000 product categories on thousands of eCommerce sites around the world. The Paris-based company expects that 500 servers may be required in the next two years to handle the expanding capacity.
With rapid expansion in Europe and globally, Twenga was looking for a Web hosting provider established in the Netherlands for its central location both geographically and from the Internet perspective. Amsterdam is regarded as an important Internet node where the major telecom carriers have a well-established presence.
