The introduction of new and innovative multimedia applications drives the continued success of Mail.Ru by keeping its advertisers and its audience coming back for more.
Pavel Zavyalov, Deputy CTO, Mail.Ru
Mail.Ru is one of the largest Internet companies in the Russian-speaking market, and its portal had reached a monthly audience of 31.9 million users by September 2012, while its social network reached 21.8 million users per month.
To continuously evolve its data center design with the latest technologies that can support a double digit growth trajectory, Mail.Ru needed a new network infrastructure that was highly available, reliable, easy to operate, and cost-effective.
After a thorough evaluation of products from three leading vendors, Mail.Ru deployed a new Juniper-based network.
The Juniper network is handling traffic peaks with 100% uptime to date. The access layer has been simplified using EX Series Switches Virtual Chassis technology, and consolidation is reducing the data center footprint.
