Celebrating 5 Years of Revive Adserver Hosted edition

This month, we celebrate both the 10 year anniversary of what is now called the Revive Adserver Download edition, and the 5 year anniversary of the Revive Adserver Hosted edition.

Let’s take a moment to reflect on the first 5 years of Revive Adserver Hosted edition, from its inception to its current strengths, and look forward to its bright future.

What inspired Revive Adserver Hosted edition?

In 2013, the Revive Adserver open source project was celebrating its 5th anniversary. At the time, we clearly noticed that a lot of people were eager to use our software, but did not have the time, the skills, or the resources to create their own self-hosted installation. Therefore, we decided to make the Revive Adserver software accessible to a lot more users by launching the Hosted Edition. This turned out to be a game-changer, by making our ad serving system accessible to a broader audience, from small website owners to large enterprises.

The five key strenghts of Revive Adserver Hosted edition

Accessibility and Ease of Use

One of the key achievements of Revive Adserver Hosted Edition is its commitment to accessibility for non-technical users. People and businesses no longer need extensive technical knowledge or server management skills to harness the power of ad serving. With a user-friendly interface and cloud-based infrastructure, users can focus on their ad campaigns and content without the hassle of server maintenance. Just subscribe, receive your username, set your password, and get started. It’s that simple!

Scalability and Reliability

Scalability is vital in the digital advertising landscape, and Revive Adserver Hosted Edition has excelled in this regard. Whether you’re a small blog looking to monetize your content or a large corporation managing extensive ad campaigns, the platform can adapt to your needs. Its cloud-based architecture ensures reliability and high availability, even during traffic spikes. Our infrastructure serves the entire user base of very small accounts, very large accounts, and everything in between. As such it is capable of handling increases and decreases in traffic of individual accounts with ease and grace. It makes the ad serving experience for all users extremely reliable.

Compliance and Security

In an era of heightened data privacy concerns, Revive Adserver Hosted Edition was designed with compliance for privacy regulations and data security as the default. We support GDPR and other data protection regulations by design, providing peace of mind to publishers. And since Revive Adserver Hosted edition is built with the exact same software that anyone can also download, everyone can inspect and research our code to the very last line, to ensure that it is as secure as it needs to be.

Ever Growing User Base

The success of Revive Adserver Hosted Edition is not solely attributed to its features but also to the vibrant user base that has grown out of it. The technical learnings from running what is essentially an enormous shared installation of the Revive Adserver software has given our developers a lot of insight into what it takes to be scalable, reliable, and fast. These learnings and findings have been incorporated into new releases of the software, benefitting both the users of the Download edition and the Hosted edition.

Cost Effectiveness

The steady growth of the user base of Revive Adserver Hosted edition has also resulted in significant economies of scale, enabling us to maintain very affordable rates for our subscribers despite the dramatic inflation that the world has been experiencing in the past couple of years. This is reflected in the ever increasing number of subscribers from countries and regions that are not as prosperous as those that the traditional big tech companies have been focussing on. We take pride in being able to offer a cloud-based service that provides enterprise grade features at rates that almost everyone can afford.

Looking Ahead

As we celebrate the 5-year anniversary of Revive Adserver Hosted Edition, it’s clear that the platform has made significant strides in democratizing ad serving. Its commitment to accessibility, scalability, compliance, security, and affordability has paved the way for our users to thrive in an ever-evolving digital landscape.

Looking ahead, we can only anticipate more exciting developments from Revive Adserver Hosted Edition. With a user-centric approach and a dedication for accessibility and affordability, our platform is poised to continue supporting the world of online advertising for years to come.

Cheers to five years of achievement and to a future filled with success.
