With the Cutting-Edge Technology Support of Huawei Cloud In Flagship Product, TOGL Manages Peak Traffic Effortlessly

As one of the fastest-growing internet companies in Malaysia, TOGL offers a range of popular apps, including Yippi, a messaging and social app, TopzMall, an e-commerce platform, and TogaGo, an e-travel platform. Adhering to the mission of “establishing a leading new internet economy system in Southeast Asia and developing a platform for individuals and small and medium-sized enterprises”, TOGL brings convenience and various life-enhancing services to users across different countries, while also offering numerous business opportunities for local small and medium-sized enterprises.

Meanwhile, TOGL’s most popular flagship product, Yippi, offers users a wide range of services and has established the Yippi electronic reward ecosystem, using Yipps Points to make the entire Yippi world work. Additionally, Yippi also enables live streaming of major concerts, award ceremonies, and product launches.

Yippi, with 6 million users in Southeast Asia and China, has consistently received robust technical support from Huawei Cloud. To meet the needs of a more flexible architecture, TOGL opted for Huawei Cloud Container Engine (CCE) Turbo and Relational Database Service (RDS). Rearchitected with containers, their systems can easily survive traffic spikes with up to 3,000 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 has integrated video-on-demand (VOD) into multiple services, ensuring users enjoy high-quality video playback for a more seamless viewing experience.

Yippi’s rapid growth in recent years has propelled TOGL towards its vision of becoming “the foremost provider of social communication services in Southeast Asia”. Aligned with this vision, TOGL has devised a comprehensive plan to expand into Southeast Asia and is fully dedicated to pursuing this objective.

The visit greatly enhanced the TOGL team’s understanding of Huawei’s cutting-edge technology and world-leading engineering capabilities, instilling them with unwavering confidence. This holds immense significance in deepening the collaborative relationship between TOGL and Huawei, while driving the progress of both parties. Mr. Roy expressed deep gratitude for Huawei’s invitation and warm hospitality, describing it as an unforgettable experience. He eagerly anticipates future opportunities for diversified cooperation with Huawei, with the shared goal of creating a more brilliant future together.
