Pixlr.com Selects Netfirms Enterprise For Large Scale Hosting
Netfirms, a leader in cloud computing web hosting powers traffic heavy online image editing solution.

Toronto, ON (PRWEB) November 20, 2008 -- Netfirms Inc. (http://www.netfirms.com) a leader in webhosting, domain names and Web 2.0 technology, announced today that Pixlr.com, an online image editor, has selected the Netfirms Enterprise cloud computing hosting platform to run their high volume traffic website.

Pixlr.com is the leading pioneer in fast and easy online image editing that gives the user the ability to create or edit an image from a hard drive or URL. This free flash based application loads in seconds and does not slow down when editing multiple images - even with thousands of users online at any one time.

"With Netfirms Enterprise's ability to handle the thousands of visitors Pixlr.com receives in a day," remarked Ola Sevandersson, CEO of Pixlr.com, "we are able to take advantage of Netfirms cloud computing hosting platform and launch Pixlr to its full potential."

Available in over ten languages, Pixlr's international appeal will only increase its traffic load. Netfirms Enterprise cloud hosting will be there to support all global visitors at any time. In just over three months Pixlr has received over 1 million visitors and, with hundreds of Netfirms servers working for Pixlr.com, the application will run smoothly regardless of high volumes of traffic or traffic spikes.

Launched in August 2008, Pixlr.com started receiving instant publicity from online blogs and forums. Their prior single server setup was slow, unpredictable and not designed to handle high volumes of traffic or spikes. Once the performance of the application had been affected, a new hosting solution was sought after and Netfirms was selected for its Enterprise cloud hosting expertise (http://www.netfirms.com/enterprise-hosting/).

"Netfirms is excited to continue fueling Pixlr.com's remarkable growth. With Pixlr's popularity growing day-by-day, they will be able to depend on our cloud hosting technology to support their growth in numbers," said Thomas Savundra, President, Netfirms, Inc.

"With the Netfirms grid hosting platform, our customers can free themselves from in-house servers, expensive software installations and other localized devices," says Savundra.
