Skype goes under the magnifying glass in NetHosting’s newest case study, revealing interesting facts about the widely successful online communication provider.
Originally founded by Scandinavians Niklas Zennström and Janus Friis in 2003, Skype is a service that allows people to communicate with anyone around the world from their own personal computers. Since its beginnings, Skype has implemented a video conferencing and instant message feature, released an app on the Apple and Android market, and is continuing to dominate the long distance communication market.
Skype, like Google, has become a household term meaning to talk to someone via the web. There are over 700 million registered users world-wide and over 300 million minutes of video calls are made every day.
“Skype is revolutionizing the way we communicate online,” stated NetHosting CEO Lane Livingston. “Its use of cloud computing technology is an ingenious method of achieving optimum scalability. It perfectly demonstrates the advantages to efficiency and profitability that this type of hosting solution provides.”
NetHosting has released case studies on other popular online services and websites, including case studies on Google, Pinterest, and Flickr.
