With AppBeat DC, the company has reduced web server spending and bandwidth requirements while accelerating application performance.

“Kariyer.net has been the leading online HR site in Turkey since our inception in 1999. Today, we handle over 250,000 unique visitors daily and this number continues to grow. Providing reliable service to our growing user population is essential,” said Dr. Askin Karakas, CTO of Kariyer.net. “Crescendo Networks helps us protect our site’s stability and performance without increasing our server infrastructure.

Kariyer.net plans to use of the global server load balancing capabilities of AppBeat DC to distribute traffic to different data centers.
