Years experience in e-commerce
Founded in 1999, Kelkoo is Europe's third largest e-commerce website and one of the largest e-commerce advertising platforms in Europe. Its comprehensive website offers a one-stop shopping service to help customers locate, research, and buy a wide variety of products. Kelkoo operates in twelve countries, making it one of the most respected comparison websites in Europe.
Traffic to Kelkoo’s online shopping website ebbs and flows with consumer demand. The increasing number of offers and merchants Kelkoo manages, together with a growing need for more frequent product data updates, meant it required a fast and scalable network infrastructure. Kelkoo needed a hosting provider with the capacity and scalability to support any sudden increases in traffic. This would ensure virtually no downtime and optimal page downloads, which will provide the best customer experience.
"Leaseweb delivered a well-thought solution that met our company objectives. When we need to expand our capacity, they provide a solution very rapidly."
Michael Trommsdorff, Chief Technical Officer
