MAXIHOST BARE METAL SERVERS PROVIDES POWER AND AGILITY TO GET BETTER PRODUCTS TO MARKET FASTER

Right now, Algolia is seeing greater demand for its services, which requires new environments to be able to deliver new features for those markets. This surge in interest means that Algolia must deliver new features faster in each country, and for each environment.

Maxihost Bare Metal Cloud assists Algolia not only to improve its experience with customers in South America, but also with keeping excellent backend performance with high end CPU and SSD powered servers.

The result: significant improvements in both efficiency and time. Maxihost’s Bare Metal offering has enabled Algolia to spin up environments much faster than before, slashing response times from 134ms to 26ms in Brazil.

Customer Business

High performance hosted search API that powers results in miliseconds, giving users the fastest access to what they're looking for.

Challenges

The nature of Algolia's search API demands a distributed infrastructure in order to provide low response times to millions of users located throughout the globe. To meet booming customer demand in Brazil, Algolia needed to assume greater control, scale and speed via dedicated solutions.
