eBaum Nation Snags Exclusive Video of LeBron James Getting Dunked on by Jordan Crawford, Scoops TMZ and Streams on BitGravity

July 22, 2009

ROCHESTER, N.Y. and BURLINGAME, Calif., July 22 /PRNewswire/ – Anticipating a traffic spike, eBaum Nation, the site for all entertainment needs, selected BitGravity, Inc., a global leader in online delivery, as its content delivery provider and then posted exclusive video of LeBron James getting dunked on by Xavier star Jordan Crawford. eBaum Nation’s traffic immediately spiked after hitting the front page of Yahoo Sports, and Sports Illustrated, ESPN and Diggnation.

“Our exclusive video of LeBron ‘getting dunked’ is 100 times better than the cell phone video posted on TMZ and we knew we needed a more robust network to handle the traffic spike. We got the video at 3:00 PM today and quickly decided to partner with BitGravity. They got us up in less than an hour, and I know for a fact that no other CDN provider could have done that. BitGravity’s support team and network are absolutely incredible,” said Eric Bauman, CEO of eBaum Nation. “It’s all about timing in our business and we aim to be the site that gets the video scoop. We realized we needed a partner like BitGravity with a phenomenal support team and network that could flawlessly handle huge traffic spikes. We would have missed this opportunity without BitGravity.

“One video can hit millions of viewers on the Internet in a matter of hours and companies without CDNs are ill-prepared. BitGravity’s network was architected to be fast, scalable and to provision quickly, which enables us to better support our customers’ viral videos. Time can mean money to user-generated video companies. Our goal is to enable customers to quickly take advantage of great opportunities and we’re here to completely handle their content delivery so they can stay one step ahead of their competition,” said Perry Wu, co-founder and CEO of BitGravity.
