We are like a Google Drive, but specialized in Image Hosting
With Microsoft’s OneDrive, Dropbox and Apple’s iCloud you can store and share photos. We are like that, but we specialize in image hosting for eCommerce.
What our customers are saying
Speed optimizations tailored for image hosting, absent from traditional cloud drives
Lossless optimization reduces the file size of images with 21% on average
Lossless optimization removes invisible image header data and image meta data, the actual image data is not touched. Cameras typically embed a whole bunch of attributes as meta data into a photo file. This is data that is not needed to display the photo on the web. The craziest we’ve seen is the Lens Serial Number. This stuff is cleaned in real-time when delivering the images.
NEW JAN 2024: Lossy optimization reduces the file size of images with 48% on average
Besides lossless optimization, we also apply lossy optimization. We optimize and compress the image data of the image. Visually the human eye will not notice a difference, yet the file size of the jpg will be smaller, meaning it will load faster.
Images are delivered in the 34% smaller WEPB format if supported by the browser
For each image request, we check if WEBP is supported by the browser and calculate if serving the WEBP format could be faster. WEBP is on average 34% smaller than JPGs, so the image loads faster. There is no visual difference that our eyes can see, your image quality is assured. The check, calculation, conversion and caching happens in a split second.
We’re serious about caching your images closer to your buyers, unmatched by traditional cloud drives and server space hosts
Hundreds of data centers across the world cache your images – for quick access
Our delivery network has hundreds of data centers across the world. In the United States alone we have 97 data centers. Popular images are cached everywhere in the world, meaning the distance to travel to the viewer for the image is greatly reduced. The result is faster image loading.
NEW DEC 2023: We also cache unpopular images in our data center caches. Unique.
Standard content delivery networks cache only popular images. They have aggressive cache eviction rules to save costs and space. If you’re a small player, you’re in bad luck. We at Img.vision do it differently, we cache even unpopular images if they’re bigger than 50Kb for at least 30 days in data center caches close to your viewers.
We use 2 market leader CDNs for our image delivery. Unique.
Because one is just not good enough. We rely on the two market leaders in content delivery networks (CDNs) for ensuring the speed of your images is top notch.
Security and reliability
We prevent outages with our AI firewall system that detects and neutralizes cyberattacks
Our AI firewall is enterprise grade software and hardware designed to detect DDOS attacks, neutralize them, and prevent your images from going offline.
We can handle a huge amount of image traffic
We rely on large cloud infrastructure providers to offer our services. We even use 2 content delivery networks (CDNs). We are equipped to handle a large influx of traffic like eCommerce seasonal peaks to keep your images online.
