VR is hot hot hot! As the technology is becoming widely available, we see more and more customers picking it up. For example, LeaseWeb recently teamed up with Hardwell – the world’s #1 DJ – and technology partners Littlstar and VBR to pull off the first 360-degree, VR live stream of an EDM performance.
Using our private cloud, CDN, and datacenters in Europe, the U.S. and Asia, the world’s #1 DJ was able to broadcast his show to thousands of viewers in more than 25 countries. LeaseWeb served over 20 Terabytes of total traffic and accommodated 12 gigabit bandwidth spikes.
So we sent a camera team was on-site at the Miami Beach stop of Hardwell’s Revealed tour. Check out the video below to see how it all came together! And afterwards, check our 360-degree tour of one of our data centers!

Algolia is a distributed Search-as-a-Service API that processes more than 4 billions user-generated queries per month. Algolia’s DNA is performance, the service is optimized to reply in milliseconds from any location worldwide while maintaining high availability. Today, Algolia’s co-founder and CTO Julien Lemoine provides details on their architecture, showing how they designed their fault tolerant service and how they use LeaseWeb.
Under the hood
Building a highly available API distributed over 12 regions isn’t an easy process – especially since our users can select the set of regions they want to use. Under the hood, we automatically replicate their data and synchronize any change on all their regions. This approach is really different from a CDN that just keeps a cache of recently accessed data, we guarantee our users that any of the regions they have selected have all of the data locally and can serve their search requests. In other words, all write operations of our users are applied on all their regions, even for a very high load of write operations per second.
