Interview
Changhoon Lee, Director, MAKEULIKE
Please introduce your company.
MAKEULIKE is a digital advertising agency that was established in 2012.
MAKEULIKE creates TVC video advertisements and online and mobile advertisements for large scale increase of awareness and the performance as well as out-of-home (OOH) advertisements that can expose detailed information according to the target's path of movement. MAKEULIKE is a total game marketing specialist with game marketing know-how and experience on around 150 games that have been newly released or are running well. Recently, MAKEULIKE is also expanding the business in creating online platforms, such as Moon 1st, Gwanghwamoon 1st, the BMW marketing site, the Pyeongchang Olympics, and many other government institution websites.
When did you first discover NAVER Cloud Platform and how did you decide to use it?
The decision to use NAVER Cloud Platform was because of the user-friendliness of the console and user guide.
We found out about NAVER Cloud Platform around December of 2017. We had already experienced many Korean and international cloud services, and wanted to try out NAVER Cloud Platform. When we tried out the product, we noticed straight away how user-friendly the user guide was compared to other cloud services. The usability of the console was also terrific and we had no difficulty in creating instances or using additional services. We decided to use NAVER Cloud Platform after just three days of testing the service.
What are the distinctive features or advantages of NAVER Cloud Platform?
We received fast customer support and stable service. Whenever we start a new project, we create new instances on NAVER Cloud Platform.
When we were using other cloud services, we did not receive prompt customer service. Also, we were dissatisfied that the problems with the cloud service were not shared transparently with us and we were not given much information about how the services will be improved in the future to avoid this kind of an issue. Even in my previous job, I experienced a service failure during an event period while using an overseas cloud service. I found out that the cloud service was under maintenance that day and the failure occurred because we were not properly notified with detailed information. Even when I was using a domestic cloud service, I experienced a failure due to a limit on the bandwidth of the service load balancer that resulted in losses of millions of Won. Trying to handle the failure related procedures were also very time consuming and inefficient. Because of these experiences, I knew what was important for a cloud service, and I recognized the advantages of the NAVER Cloud Platform. The fast and proactive customer support and stable service is a foundation of my trust toward the services of NAVER Cloud Platform. I now build all the new instances on NAVER Cloud Platform for new projects.
Which NAVER Cloud Platform product are you using and how are you using it?
At MAKEULIKE, we are utilizing the WMS product to enter the URL of a webpage and check that it is operating correctly.
The Web Service Monitoring Service (WMS) is one of the products that we always use whenever we carry out a project because we can quickly check for webpage problems just by entering the service URL. WMS is very helpful for us to prevent even the smallest errors on the webpage of our client. NAVER Cloud Platform is a one-stop solution for us unlike other cloud services that require us to use other third-party solutions as well.
How has the service of MAKEULIKE improved after joining NAVER Cloud Platform?
We have enhanced security. We are also always using the security diagnosis service whenever we carry out the government institution projects or open up a website on country information.
The biggest improvement after joining the NAVER Cloud Platform is security. It provides a great product lineup on security perhaps because the NAVER Cloud Platform is a company which has not had any privacy breach, not even while operating the largest domestic portal site, Naver. We are also always using the security diagnosis service whenever we carry out the government institution projects such as 'National Constitution' or 'Talk on the College Entrance System,' or open up a website on country information. NAVER Cloud Platform is in charge of our security and we have full confidence in the services they provide.
Do you have anything to say to the people considering cloud adoption?
The competitiveness of NAVER Cloud Platform is in its strong security and effective monitoring service.
The limitations of the physical infrastructures can be mainly resolved well just by adopting cloud. That's because you can build a high capacity service by investing few resources within a short period of time and also reduce costs by turning off the server when there is little traffic or usage. This is an advantage that you can also encounter in other cloud services. But the competitiveness of NAVER Cloud Platform is that it provides strong security and effective monitoring service on top of this advantage. Another advantage is that it provides various API products as well. GeoLocation for example, is the sole product in Korea that provides location information based on user IP. We plan to use this product for marketing in the near future.
