By bringing together the speed and flexibility of one of the world’s top web server software with LeaseWeb’s first-class global infrastructure services, the two companies will further enhance the quality of their customers’ experience.

"A reliable and secure hosting environment with optimal uptime is very important to us. We are extremely impressed with LeaseWeb's infrastructure, performance and stability. This made selecting LeaseWeb as our preferred infrastructure partner a logical next step," said Andrew Alexeev, co-founder of NGINX.

Over 25% of the world’s top 1000 high traffic websites use NGINX, making it the second most popular open source web server of the Internet. Among the companies using NGINX today are well-known online services such as Facebook, Dropbox, Groupon, WordPress and SourceForge. LeaseWeb, in turn, is one of the largest Internet infrastructure and hosting providers in Europe and the USA, serving many high-profile clients such as Kelkoo, Starbucks and Wikimedia.

The two companies started collaborating during the development of LeaseWeb’s new Content Delivery Network (CDN) infrastructure. Utilizing NGINX products, LeaseWeb’s CDN will enable customers to serve web content more quickly and economically, wherever they are in the world. The combination of LeaseWeb’s high performance Internet services and NGINX’s unmatched speed and scalability ensures greater web infrastructure efficiency at affordable cost. Based on the success of the partnership and the state-of-the-art hosting solutions within a first-class worldwide network, NGINX has now chosen LeaseWeb as its preferred infrastructure partner.

"NGINX was our first choice as a performance caching solution for our CDN. We now work closely together on the optimization of this cutting-edge service," said Robert van der Meulen, LeaseWeb. "We are very proud to be named Preferred Infrastructure Partner based on our collaboration.”
