Video acceleration company, Swarmify, announces they have optimized 500 million streams since launching their platform two years ago. CEO and Co-Founder, Nathan Barnett, says his team developed the product to help solve for some of the toughest issues in video streaming: buffer and stream quality. According to him, they have been able to deliver an 8X reduction in buffering problems using their proprietary video acceleration.
Barnett says that 73 percent of all internet traffic each day is video consumption and that the idea to fill a multi-billion dollar void in the marketplace is not just his idea alone.
“My two-year-old daughter had been quietly watching Dora the Explorer on Netflix when the video playback stopped and started buffering,” Barnett said. “Nothing could stop the waterworks and I didn’t have a solution. So, I decided to launch Swarmify to solve for it.”
Barnett says that maintaining the competitive edge on the market is critical to his team. This is why when Limelight Networks announced a 10 percent re-buffer rate guarantee this past spring, he countered an 80 percent reduction guarantee. The team also partnered with top WordPress plugin, W3 Total Cache, to bring video acceleration to their millions of users.
Today, Barnett’s Florida-based company claims it provides an advantage over the largest content delivery networks. The team secured customers from major brands like NBC and GM earlier this year. He says their unique approach to streaming makes Swarmify one of a few companies offering to make high-quality video delivery affordable to companies of all sizes .
"It is milestones like this that make our work rewarding,” Barnett said following the announcement of hitting the 500 million stream mark. “We’re honored that user satisfaction ratings are high and that industries we never expected are actively engaging us in their next generation video developments.”
