SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/30/14 -- The popular website discovery company, Flipora, announces today that it has crossed the 25 million user mark and is rapidly approaching 30 million international users. Flipora is a Web based recommendation engine that suggests websites to users personalized to their interests. The recommendation engine uses machine learning to intelligently infer a user's interests based on their Web browsing history and Facebook activity. The Web is the world's largest knowledge base and Flipora's goal is to categorize the world's knowledge and recommend it to users based on their interests.
"This has been an exciting, record breaking year for us, and user-growth is only part of it," says Jonathan Siddharth, Flipora's Co-CEO. "Flipora's user base has been almost doubling every year. We have also recorded an all-time high in new user registrations, with over 100,000 new registrations in a single day. This is a huge milestone. This is also the year we made the Top 10 list of social media sites for sharing, alongside Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn."
Flipora's personalization and recommendation engine analyzes 100 million websites each day, roughly 25 times the size of Wikipedia. The service monetizes through the inclusion of ads, and has been profitable since late last year with revenues growing at a rapid pace. Flipora's Co-CEO, Vijay Krishnan, says, "We take a long-term view to building our company and product, which translates to a focus on having a scalable business model alongside a great product and user experience. We expect to end the year with over 50 million users and to continue scaling our rapidly growing revenues. It's exciting times ahead."
Over the last year, Flipora has seen an astounding increase in its mobile user base. Today, about 25% of worldwide and 50% of US new users sign in through their mobile devices. To satisfy the need of this growing population, the company projects to release its mobile app for iOS later this year. Given Flipora's strong international growth, translations in 11 new languages have been accomplished; German, Spanish, French, Hungarian, Indonesian, Italian, Portuguese, Vietnamese, Chinese, Japanese, and Korean. This will help Flipora gain a significant foothold in many new markets.
One of the unique aspects of Flipora's recommendation engine is its ability to do intelligent personalization automatically. The service uses state-of-the-art machine learning algorithms to automatically infer a user's topic preference, based on their web browsing history and Facebook data. Additionally, users can choose to follow not only topics, but other users as well. This personalization module, called FlipCat, can analyze a user's data and categorize it to build each user's customized profile of their interests. This helps the recommendation engine to suggest interesting websites on topics that users will love. An API for FlipCat that developers can request access to has launched and is now avaliable at http://ai.flipora.com. Significant updates to Flipora's core recommendation engine are also planned for in the coming months. Flipora continues to expand and prosper on its mission to categorize the world's knowledge and recommend the best of the Web to users based on their interests.

With so much going on in this space you could be forgiven for thinking you were always working with yesterday’s technologies. So much change, so quickly. What do you do if you have to build a solution from the ground up that is expected to live in the field for at least 5-10 years? This is the challenge we faced when we looked to refresh our existing 10-year-old custom hardware stack to measure the fullness of trash cans and compactors.

Fact: storage performance problems have only gotten more complicated, as applications not only have become largely virtualized, but also have moved to cloud-based infrastructures. Storage performance in virtualized environments isn’t just about IOPS anymore. Instead, you need to guarantee performance for individual VMs, helping applications maintain performance as the number of VMs continues to go up in real time. In his session at Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, Product and Marketing at Tintri, wil...
