Malaysian Internet technology company TOGL has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Huawei Cloud to partner in metaverse, virtual experience, livestreaming, big data, and AI.
The agreement was signed at Huawei Cloud’s recent Spark Discovery event in Shenzhen where top Internet from the Asia Pacific were invited to visit Huawei’s headquarters and meet experts from Huawei and leading peers in China.
One of the fastest growing Internet companies in Malaysia, TOGL has a number of popular applications including Yippi for social networking, TopzMall for e-commerce, and TogaGo for travel services, a portal of convenience for local people and a platform of opportunities for local small and medium-sized businesses.
Yippi is the star product of TOGL and the best example of how TOGL is technically powered by Huawei Cloud. Yippi provides a wide range of services, from social networking, payment, e-commerce, travel, entertainment, video calls, to healthcare. It also supports live events such as concerts, award ceremonies, and product launches.
Needing a more flexible architecture, TOGL has chosen the Huawei Cloud Container Engine (CCE) Turbo and Relational Database Service (RDS). Rearchitected with containers, TOGL systems can now easily deal with traffic spikes with up to 3000 pods added in just one minute. RDS allows reads and writes of stored user information, comments, recommendations, and rewards in just seconds. These cloud services make the app stable and smooth.
Yippi also integrates video on demand (VOD) into multiple services to ensure user acquisition and retention with quality video playback.
Huawei Cloud VOD provides an OBS + CDN pseudo origin server solution to reduce the origin pull latency by 60% and improve QoS performance such as the first frame latency, stream pull rate, and frame freezing, compared with the previous IDC origin servers. Viewers enjoy smooth playback and TOGL enjoys a 50% reduction in public network bandwidth costs.
Yippi is also making its presence felt in virtual exhibits, retail metaverse, and other fields.
