Quixey Case Study

Background

Quixey is a mobile technology company that provides solutions for better access and engagement with content and functionalities within apps. The company's mission is to help people discover apps through deep linking, a functionality that connects pages within and between apps. It helps people connect to apps and apps to people.

Challenges

Quixey’s mobile app search services are tailored to the unique needs of individual users. The deep linking search technology leverages social media websites, blogs and reviews from forums to provide accurate search results. In order to perform these searches to full capacity, Quixey needed a large amount of reliable servers with high availability for crawling and indexing services.

Quixey required a cloud based mobile app solution to provide uninterrupted services to its mobile search users. The service entailed massive crawling to provide accurate results. The back-end for such a mobile app requires high powered scalable servers which is best served in a cloud environment.

Quixey also needed an elastic infrastructure to scale up its requirements when customer search activity peaked. At the same time, it wanted the flexibility to release the resources when search activities slowed down to save on operational expenditure.

Why Alibaba Cloud?

Alibaba Cloud's expertise in mobile support were a major factor behind Quixey's decision to entrust Alibaba Cloud with their cloud infrastructure. Quixey has built and deployed its mobile application using services such as ECS, Server Load Balancer and Object Storage Service (OSS) to create a highly available and elastic cloud-based mobile solution.

Quixey is able to deliver a smooth user experience by allowing mobile application users to easily search and have quick and streamlined access to apps, people and content. This was made possible by the built-in scalability of Alibaba Cloud infrastructure support at the backend. Alibaba Cloud services can be customized programmatically via APIs allowing immense flexibility in the way services are deployed. Quixey was able to design and integrate crawling and indexing services on Alibaba Cloud resources because of root level access to its services.

The built-in flexibility in Alibaba Cloud services with API-level access also allows users to programmatically launch service and customize deployment. This has enabled Quixey to design crawling and indexing services in alignment with its business objectives.
