									Corporate Case Study


“Datagram doesn’t make us feel like just another client. Their team
takes a personal interest in our social networking business which is
why they continue to earn our hosting services.”

–Anthony Lopez
Director of Site Operations
CafeMom

The Opportunity
CafeMom, (www.CafeMom.com) the premier social networking website for Mothers,
hosts millions of mom and mom-to-be profiles from around the world, as well as
photos, polls, group chats, journals and more. “With our bandwidth-intensive online
needs,” stated Anthony Lopez, Director of Site Operations for CafeMom, “CafeMom
required a managed Internet service provider, with expertise in social networking, to
help us build a reliable and scalable platform to host our website and handle our
growth.” CafeMom was ranked as the 8th fastest growing website in 2007 by
Compete (www.compete.com)

The Solution
After CafeMom’s due diligence, Datagram was chosen as the company’s hosting
provider. As a result, Datagram successfully implemented a managed Internet
network solution to support CafeMom’s global social networking site. This included
various managed network service components including routers, firewalls, switches
and load balancers as well as colocation and Internet access in one of Datagram’s
high availability datacenter facilities in New York City. Datagram also provided
managed private data lines and Internet access services to CafeMom’s headquarters.
“The rollout of services was fast, reliable and professional,” continued Mr. Lopez.

The Results
Initially, CafeMom chose Datagram as its service provider for its expertise in high
availability, managed network implementations. “After a short time working with
Datagram’s professionals, we discovered their true differentiator was their
responsiveness.” Datagram provided unique service solutions to CafeMom, including
introductions to relevant providers and the development of network design systems
that fulfill CafeMom’s challenging requirements.    “Datagram doesn’t make us feel
like just another client. Their team takes a personal interest in our social networking
business, which is why they continue to earn our hosting services. There is no doubt
as CafeMom continues to grow, Datagram will be our provider of choice.”
