In its most recent case study, NetHosting looks into Spotify, the popular music streaming service.
Orem, UT NetHosting, a leading provider of cloud hosting, dedicated hosting, and virtual hosting, has chosen the famous music streaming service, Spotify, as the topic of its most recent case study.
In the newly released case study, NetHosting reports that Spotify was founded in 2006 in Stockholm, Sweden. It slowly became the favorite streaming website for many European countries, starting with England. After heavy negotiations, various evolutions of its service, and securing sufficient funds, Spotify became available to Americans in 2011. Since then Spotify boasts of owning over 10 million tracks from headlining artists and top-of-the-charts songs.
NetHosting goes into more detail in the original case study about the streaming website’s beginnings as well as its clever use of hybrid server architecture to support its database, services, and users. Two infographics are also included in the case study; the first pinpoints key events in Spotify’s history and the second provides the projected system requirements of operating the booming music service.
In a statement, CEO of NetHosting Lane Livingston explains, “It’s not uncommon to log onto Facebook and see what other friends or acquaintances have listened to that day on Spotify. Spotify shows the trending move of the music industry towards streaming and we thought it was time we took a closer look.”
NetHosting has reported on other new and explosive web services such as Etsy, Pinterest, and Evernote.
