New York-based digital music provider boinc will use Internap’s AgileCLOUD for its global expansion.

It is expected the market for streaming music will grow to an approximate US$46bn by 2018, according to ABI Research.

boinc said provides its users unlimited, on-demand access to millions of songs without subscription fees, download charges or advertising.

It will give its users access to music on Android and iOS smartphones and soon tablets claiming users can still use it offline.

The service was originally launched in Venezula last year through a partnership with mobile operator and subsidiary of Telefonica Movistar.

The service claims to have thousands of active users and plans to expand through Latin America and other global markets.

It said it will use Internap’s virtual and bare-metal servers, colocation and hosting services to meet its full range of application and workload requirements, from digital music service management and delivery to disaster recovery.

boinc said it will also use Internap’s route-optimized Performance IP connectivity and content delivery network (CDN) to ensure the seamless, high-quality delivery of digital music to users as it expands globally.

boinc’s director of infrastructure Karl Zander said: “given our goal to reach five million users across multiple regions in the next year, it is imperative that the infrastructure for storing our music library and delivering it to mobile devices all over the world is agile, scalable and provides a flawless experience for our users.”
