Infrastructure is no laughing matter. But humor is huge online, and two growing online comedy franchises have expanded their delivery infrastructure this week:
- National Lampoon (NLN) said today that it will run its National Lampoon Humor Network and ad services on managed servers from Internap Network Services (INAP). "We are aggressively expanding our online presence and properties as the top humor destinations on the Web and Internap is helping us evolve with their combined expertise in Content Delivery Networks (CDN), IP, colocation, managed services and professional services," said Zach Posner, vice president of corporate development for National Lampoon.
- BitGravity said it will provide high-definition object and video delivery for the CollegeHumor.com website. "CollegeHumor has a rapidly growing fan base and BitGravity's highly scalable platform is exactly what we needed to deliver the highest quality video and user experience," said Kunal Shah, VP of Technology at CollegeHumor.
