AutoTrader UK Revs Up Its Website Performance with Limelight Network’s Content Delivery Network


Leading digital automotive marketplace gets 97 percent cache-hit efficiency

TEMPE, Ariz.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- When AutoTrader UK, the U.K. and Ireland’s largest digital automotive marketplace, wanted to speed up and improve website experiences, the company turned to Limelight Networks (NASDAQ: LLNW), a global leader in digital content delivery.

“We wanted a content delivery partner with innovative features, competitive pricing, and great support,” said Russell Warman, Head of Infrastructure at AutoTrader. “We get all of that with Limelight. They treat us as a valued customer, and they’ve helped us enhance our website’s responsiveness and our brand.”

AutoTrader UK has more than 247 million views of its advertisements each month and a fast-changing inventory of over 450,000 vehicles listed by both private and retail customers. Each advertisement can have up to 100 high-resolution images to bring every aspect of a car to life and must be available 24/7 from any Internet connected device. To deliver high-quality website experiences with this volume of constantly changing information, AutoTrader UK needed a content delivery network (CDN) that was fast, secure, scalable and supports consistent and engaging customer experiences.

“Limelight’s network allows AutoTrader UK to bypass the public Internet so that customers get the fast load times they expect every time on all connected devices,” said Jonathan Smith, Group Vice-President and Managing Director at Limelight Networks. “We’ve increased their cache-hit rate to an industry-leading 97 percent to help them deliver the best possible customer experiences.”

A complete case study is available here with additional details.
