Maxthon Announces Expanded Partnership with Yandex, Russia's Leading Search and Web Services Provider

-- Localized Yandex Services to be Pre-loaded onto Maxthon's Seamless Cloud Browser

BARCELONA, Spain, Feb. 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Maxthon, a global software company that develops state-of-the-art web browsers, today announced it is expanding its partnership with Yandex, Russia's dominant search and web services provider. In a new agreement, Maxthon and Yandex will work together to offer Maxthon web browsers to Russian desktop and mobile users pre-loaded with several of Yandex's top web services.

The collaboration builds on Maxthon's already-strong growth in Russia in both mobile and desktop browser activations and is in line with Maxthon's 'global/local' strategy of offering high performance web browsers optimized with local services and content, all linked through Maxthon's seamless 'Cloud Browser.'

"We're excited to be offering these services to Maxthon customers in Russia," said Jeff Chen, CEO and founder of Maxthon. "Our original partnership with Yandex offered our customers Russia's superior search experience. Adding Yandex services threaded through Maxthon's multi-platform browsing doubles down on that already-strong value."

Maxthon will be pre-loading access to a number of Yandex services including:

  • Yandex.Safe Browsing: The most comprehensive and current safe site database covering the Russian internet.
  • Yandex.Mail: One of Russia's most popular webmail services offering its users unlimited mail storage, anti-virus protection, advanced spam filtering and much more.
  • Yandex.Market: Russia's leading online comparison shopping system, with more than 53,000,000 product offers in more than 14,000 online stores available to customers in Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Kazakhstan and Turkey.
  • Yandex.Maps: Online mapping service providing high-quality, detailed maps of more than 1,300 cities and towns in Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan and Belarus, together with satellite images and hybrid maps, panoramic street views and driving directions, for desktop and mobile users.
  • Yandex.Taxi: A safe, reliable and affordable taxi ordering service with traffic-based routing, available on desktop and mobile devices in Russia's largest cities.

"Russia is a tremendously dynamic internet market that is a key part of our global growth strategy," said Karl Mattson, VP of Maxthon's International Division. "In particular, there's a split between urban and provincial internet penetration and internet activity. Adding Yandex services complements both."

Enterprises have been using both Big Data and virtualization for years. Until recently, however, most enterprises have not combined the two. Big Data's demands for higher levels of performance, the ability to control quality-of-service (QoS), and the ability to adhere to SLAs have kept it on bare metal, apart from the modern data center cloud. With recent technology innovations, we've seen the advantages of bare metal erode to such a degree that the enhanced flexibility and reduced costs that ...
DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT.
