MocoSpace and Yottaa to Co-Present 'Using CDN and Front-End Optimization to Deliver a Good Mobile Experience' at CDN Summit

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - May 14, 2012) - Yottaa, Inc., the website optimization company, announced today the launch and first customer of the Yottaa Solution for Mobile Acceleration. The solution will help ensure a great user experience for MocoSpace's free-to-play mobile apps and HTML5 games. Executives from both companies will deliver a joint presentation, 'Using CDN and Front-End Optimization to Deliver a Good Mobile Experience,' today at the Content Deliver Network (CDN) Summit, New York Hilton, New York.

The Yottaa Solution for Mobile Acceleration allows MocoSpace and other mobile-savvy companies to deliver a great user experience centered on fast mobile access. With the largest catalog of HTML5 games online, MocoSpace has over 25 million registered users spending 60 million minutes every day playing games, making friends, and simply staying connected, making it the biggest entertainment destination on the mobile Internet today.

Yottaa's new mobile solution is designed to help companies prepare their sites for the rapidly growing segment of visitors coming from portable, hand-held devices. The availability of more capable devices, networks and applications is driving the acceleration of mobile web adoption, but many Websites are having difficulty keeping up with the unique limitations and needs of mobile customers. With today's on-the-go consumers and business users' dependence on mobile web access, it's becoming increasingly clear that the bottlenecks for performance lie in the delivery and execution of the code that drives mobile applications. The Yottaa Solution for Mobile Acceleration combines Yottaa's patented front-end optimization service with a global content delivery network (CDN), solving these challenges in an automated fashion.

"Experience matters. At MocoSpace, we are proud of the fast, reliable and seamless user experience we deliver to our user community," said Jamie Hall, CTO and co-founder of MocoSpace. "Implementing the Yottaa Solution for Mobile Acceleration has allowed us to dramatically cut down the number of round trips, reduce payload and leverage client side processing, resulting in improved user experience and business metrics such as engagements and conversions."

"Mobile social gaming is one of the hottest industries today. With more and more users playing games and socializing via their smart phones, the mobile web is fast becoming the high-growth market opportunity," said Robert Buffone, co-founder and CTO at Yottaa. "MocoSpace is one of the hottest companies and the category leader for social gaming. At Yottaa, we're thrilled to leverage our front-end optimization and global CDN services to deliver a great mobile experience to the MocoSpace community.

"Combining and automating front-end optimization and a content delivery network is the key to success on the mobile web. Together with Jamie, we look forward to sharing what we learned and our experiences with the community at the CDN Summit," added Buffone.

Attendees of the CDN Summit's MocoSpace/Yottaa co-presentation -- 'Using CDN and Front-End Optimization to Deliver a Good Mobile Experience' -- taking place today at 12:30PM ET, will learn how MocoSpace combined Front-End optimization with a CDN to deliver a great user experience for mobile apps and HTML5 games. Additionally, attendees will hear some of the unique challenges of the mobile web including the differences between the desktop and mobile web, how last-mile latency is the primary opportunity, and how and why front-end optimization is a key ingredient for innovation and continued growth on the mobile Web.
