Website speed directly impacts the user experience and the overall success of digital-native businesses like MOpress. The on-demand content marketplace faced a host of challenges to accelerate page load time and optimize website performance. These challenges include:
• Unstable Network and High Latency: In today's era of 5G, one of the primary requirements is the need for a stable, fast, and low latency network. MOpress faced unstable connections with its existing network and service providers. Therefore, it wanted a partner that could ensure a highly available network connection around the clock, with higher network reliability and lower latency.
• Slow Load Time for Images: Content creators on MOpress generate a substantial volume of content, including images and media. MOpress encountered website performance issues while users accessed the website since images stored in its storage server often load very slowly, dragging down its site speed. The company was looking for a cloud storage solution to store and manage images and media efficiently, securely, and cost-effectively.
• Acute Need for a Scalable, Agile, and Secure Storage: MOpress produces massive amounts of data every day, including large volumes of media and images. For ensuring seamless operations, the MOpress needed a scalable and reliable storage solution that can store any amount of data while effortlessly supporting multiple use cases, including content distribution, website optimization, and secure backup.03

MOpress implemented Alibaba Cloud Content Delivery Network for accelerated distribution of its content, resolving the delivery latency problem caused by bandwidth and server performance issues. Alibaba Cloud CDN's intelligent connection selection, smart compression, and a backbone network with 10-GE NICs and SSD storage ensure web page optimization and smooth content delivery. Furthermore, MOpress also deployed Alibaba Cloud Virtual Private Cloud service to build an isolated cloud network to operate resources in a secure environment.
MOpress also took advantage of Alibaba Cloud's Object Storage Service (OSS) to store, manage, and access the massive amount of content it has, including high-resolution images and heavy media files. OSS also helped MOpress quickly process images with a built-in media processing feature that allows resizing images or changing formats for optimizing web page load time. Additionally, MOpress implemented Anti-DDoS to intelligently defend its platform against vulnerable attacks. Alibaba Cloud Anti-DDoS service employs global scrubbing centers to create a secure network with over 10 Tbps total mitigation capacity.05
