Wine.com chooses Strangeloop

Wine.com logoWe are very pleased to announce another great customer: Wine.com, the #1 online wine retailer. 

Wine.com's CTO, Geoffrey Smalling, explains why our Site Optimizer works so well for huge e-commerce sites:

"When we researched front-end optimization vendors, Strangeloop was by far the leading contender. Their Site Optimizer is the only product that can handle enterprise scale via appliance or cloud, and they are the only company with experience in accelerating global sites and an aggressive plan for further product development to keep sites like Wine.com at the front edge of acceleration. And on a day-to-day basis, Strangeloop’s customer service has been superb throughout the entire implementation process. Strangeloop has even developed optimizations based on our unique, regulated business."

Wine.com recently received a lot of positive attention from publications like Tech Crunch and Internet Retailer when it launched its feature-rich mobile website. As our Mobile Site Optimizer moves out of beta early in 2012, we're looking forward to accelerating Wine.com for mobile users, as well.

  • Thanks for your question, Jake. At any time, many of our customers -- including Wine.com -- run split tests, where they segment their traffic into two groups: accelerated and unaccelerated. The purpose of doing this is to gather ongoing side-by-side data re: cart size, bounce rate, conversions, etc., which validates how we add value.

    The unaccelerated sample is generally fairly small, for obvious reasons, but this means there's always a small chance that a visitor, like you, will be served unoptimized pages or that WebPagetest will test an unoptimized page.

  • wine.com is still very slow with tons of requests. What gives?
