Marubeni to Resell InfoLibria Streaming in Japan

InfoLibria has announced a reseller agreement with Marubeni Solutions Corp. of Japan to re-sell InfoLibria's content distribution and management products, including the DynaCache Web cache, MediaMall streaming media device, and Content Commander management system.

The agreement, along with the company's concomitant reseller agreement with Tokyo Electron marks InfoLibria's entrance into the Asian market.

"Japan suffers from tremendous bandwidth constraints, which are placing increasing economic strains on Internet service providers," said Masabumi Doi, deputy general manager at Marubeni Solutions.

"Marubeni considered several solutions to solve Internet service providers' bandwidth problems. After looking at all of the options, we decided that InfoLibria offered the best products for Japan. We are especially impressed with DynaCache's ability to operate in a transparent mode and its optional integration with streaming media."

"Japan has the second largest Internet market in the world after the United States, but bandwidth can cost up to 10 times as much," said Shyam Jha, vice president of marketing at InfoLibria, Inc.

"Asian Internet service providers are quickly turning to content management to improve efficiency of their networks and the experience of their users. Marubeni's expertise and reach within Japan position the company well to serve Internet service providers and large corporate customers looking for intelligent solutions to their bandwidth problems."
