MIAMI, March 13, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EXLEY Media Inc., a subsidiary of QUINT Media Inc. (OTCQB:QUNI), today announced that it has increased the server capacity for its lifestyle and celebrity news channel, EXLEY. The upgrade was required because of a surge in user demand, which at times exceeded the site's capacity to handle thousands of simultaneous visitors. With the upgrade, EXLEY is now able to welcome more than 10,000 users per second.
"We are very pleased with our growth rates but never expected spikes as dramatic as those we've seen this week," said Tino Dietrich, CEO of EXLEY Media. "Our viral content and strategic social marketing are rapidly accelerating the adoption of EXLEY as a community."
The EXLEY hardware upgrade comes on the heels of a planned software update, with version 2.0 intended to improve the user experience and transform the way consumers engage with online content. Among the new features, EXLEY plans to provide content creators with unfiltered global reach and offer consumers the unrestricted ability to respond and engage with the site's content.
"Stories can ignite like wildfire across the web, but there is no secret formula to making content viral. It's just mass appeal coupled with a great publishing platform that gives users the ability to share," added Tino Dietrich. "It is exciting that EXLEY has achieved such a significant boost in traffic in its early days. We are pleased to have added capacity to handle increased volume in the future so that we can continue working to drive passionate, repeat-user activity and significantly heighten consumer engagement."
The EXLEY application is available via the iTunes App Store and Google Play. EXLEY is also available through any mobile browser on smartphones and tablets, and via desktop and laptops at www.GetExley.com.
