Message Systems Renews Relationship With Facebook

The Intelligent, Highly Scalable Momentum Platform From Message Systems Helps Facebook Support Ultra-Fast Message Interactions and High-Volume Loads While Minimizing Footprint in the Data Center

COLUMBIA, MD--(Marketwired - Jun 4, 2013) - Message Systems today announced it has renewed its relationship with Facebook, which will continue to use the Momentum platform to support its messaging products. The Momentum platform helps the social media pioneer provide innovative, high-quality messaging experiences to its global user base. Message Systems solutions provide unmatched high-volume sending and receiving capabilities, with high availability, scalability, anti-spam/abuse and industry-leading efficiency.

"We're delighted to renew our relationship with Facebook, and take pride that Message Systems technology has helped support Facebook's global growth over the last five years," said George Schlossnagle, president and CEO of Message Systems. "The Momentum platform has proven that it can scale to handle Facebook's high message volumes, and also provide the kind of flexibility Facebook requires to meet evolving technical challenges. We look forward to working together with Facebook in the years ahead to continue to help them meet their messaging challenges."

"At our scale, we need solutions that are highly extensible and highly reliable," said Najam Ahmad, director of network engineering at Facebook. "The Momentum platform has been able to grow with our rapidly evolving infrastructure and support our need for very high throughput, and we're pleased to continue to work with the Message Systems team."

Facebook's initial Momentum implementation helped the company drive down data center costs associated with hardware management, even while membership and message loads grew exponentially. Momentum's extensible architecture and data capture features provide Facebook with the flexibility to optimize core messaging processes, while improved visibility into and control over messaging operations help the company deliver a consistently problem-free messaging experience for its users. Facebook has also benefitted from Momentum's high availability architecture and low latency design, which speeds message delivery to provide unmatched immediacy.
