Aron Bergström, Systems Architect ITCM:


Why do you use ShimmerCat?

We use ShimmerCat to serve optimized and customized images based on our client's demands through our e-commerce solution and CMS, which has 50,000 unique visitors daily and a turnover of approximately SEK 600.000, which places some demands on security and scalability. ShimmerCat's CDN facilitates the amount of technology we need to learn and maintain and gives us strategically placed nodes close to the website visitors.

What are you most happy with?

We are most pleased with the stability. We have never experienced interruptions or disruptions. If questions arise, we have quick contact with technicians through slack, which suits us perfectly. We also optimize the cost of data traffic by moving traffic from AWS CloudFront. We managed to implement the connection to ShimmerCat in under 2 hours as we already had a public S3 bucket and a "rewrite" to CloudFront

Are there features that you are missing?

To cover all forms of optimized media, we would like GIF images to be converted to optimized video formats instead such as mp4 and webm suggested by for example web vitals from google.
