yomiDr. was launched five years ago, and the system that was created for it at the time was now old, and our page views fell to 2,300,000 a month. We didn’t have mobile capability or prevention against data loss, so we thought about renewing the site. For our next CMS, we placed importance on the ease of updating multiple articles. Eventually, we received proposals from three companies, and we considered their skills, achievements in WordPress for enterprises, maintenance availability and cost. We entrusted our site to Prime Strategy. By using KUSANAGI for Microsoft Azure, our site performance has greatly improved and we now have 300,000,000 page views a month. Also, time spent operating the site is 1/6th what it was, and costs have been reduced by 50%. On top of that, if a disaster strikes eastern Japan, we can restore the site from a backup in western Japan in less than an hour.
Comment from Noriaki Ikemiya
We originally ran the site on our own server. As the site’s page views grew, we made the move to AWS and entrusted our server to another company. We expected more stable performance, but whenever we had heavy traffic the site became unstable. We decided to discuss things with Fastly, and they recommended Prime Strategy’s KUSANAGI Fully Managed Service. Prime Strategy’s proposal was sound and was supported by technological strengths that showed in the performance numbers. And we gained a peace of mind from their commitment to problem-solving. With the attraction of 24/7 site support and the ability to speak to technology experts directly, we ordered the service only a month after proposal.
