NaviSite’s Managed Hosting and CDN Services Handle Huge Demand Spike for Women’s Organization

October 28, 2009 by · Comments Off on NaviSite’s Managed Hosting and CDN Services Handle Huge Demand Spike for Women’s Organization 

NaviSiteHosting Tools –  ANDOVER, MA – NaviSite, Inc. (NASDAQ: NAVI), a leading provider of cloud-enabled enterprise-hosting and application-management services, today announced the successful deployment of content delivery network (CDN) services for Women for Women International, a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping women overcome the devastating effects of war and poverty. With close to two decades of operation, Women for Women International has raised and distributed millions of dollars, and in recent years has leveraged the Internet as a significant part of its overall fundraising strategy. Its website ( describes the Women for Women International programs that support its overall mission, while also serving as a donation mechanism, which is managed by a certified financial institution.

Women for Women International knew from previous experience that its upcoming appearance on a popular, nationally syndicated talk show could generate performance-degrading traffic spikes. The organization’s larger concern was that it was impossible to predict, with any degree of accuracy, the amount of traffic the television exposure would generate. Women for Women International would receive only a few days’ notice of its appearance, and did not know how much airtime it would receive. Overbuilding to meet nonexistent demand would consume a lot of already tight resources, but failing to meet demand would be even more devastating.

With a very tight deadline and uncertainty about its requirements, Women for Women International turned to NaviSite, its trusted Managed Web Hosting provider. NaviSite quickly deployed a CDN — in just a few days — ensuring that everything was up and running by the morning of the television broadcast. Read more
