“In Eastern Europe, approximately 70% of all online courses are sold on our platform. More than 9 000 authors conduct their classes here, they have uploaded approximately 700 Tb of videos and images to the platform in total, - comments Sergey Mikhailov, co-owner and managing partner of GetCourse. - Every day, 3 million visitors come to the websites of schools running on our servers, and this audience can be located all over the world. We were faced with the challenge to quickly and efficiently deliver video to everyone where he is".

The management of GetCourse decided to solve the problem with the help of CDN. The first experience showed that local providers cope satisfactorily with the delivery of content in Eastern Europe and the CIS, but they are not able to provide users from other places — for example, from Japan, Australia, Europe or America — with an acceptable video viewing speed. There was also a problem with international solutions.

"We took probably the most famous CDN in the world — Akamai — and tried to connect it. Everything was fine, but there was one problem: given the petabytes of traffic that we transmit monthly, the price for the services of the world leader turned out to be high, - explains Sergey Mikhailov. — Then a happy event happened for us: we started working with G-Core Labs, which offered us one of its services — CDN".

The test of the content delivery network was implemented in record time: GetCourse programmers and G-Core Labs technical support specialists set up and fully prepared the CDN for operation in two days. The speed and quality of content delivery was first checked for 10% of the traffic, and soon began to use CDN for 100% — the quality of the service was at the level of world companies. "The main advantage for us is that the price is significantly lower than the Akamai’s. All this allowed us to make an unambiguous choice in favor of G-Core Labs", - adds Sergey Mikhailov.
