Nasza Klasa launches NKtalk in cooperation with Erlang Solutions

Nasza Klasa (NK), Poland's biggest social networking site, with over 13 million active Users,  launches its new web-based IM service, called NKtalk with the help of Erlang Solutions Ltd.

When creating the NKtalk messenger service,  Nasza Klasa decided to use Erlang – the programming language increasingly used when creating  high-performance , distributed,  fault-tolerant systems such as those used in Instant Messaging. NK chose Erlang Solutions Ltd. as its development partner due to  their profound understanding of the Erlang language and their ability to solve complex technical issues.

Experts from Erlang Solutions provided Nasza Klasa's IT Team with professional training in the use of the Erlang language as well as the Erlang Open Telecom Platform (OTP) and Jabber/XMPP technologies. Erlang Solutions also implemented a large part of the system along with the integration of NKtalk with the portal and to scale the new system. Thanks to the Erlang technology NKtalk is now able to handle the huge traffic volume generated by users and their communication.

"Thanks to the cooperation with our partner, over the past few months NK developers were intensively trained in the Erlang programming language. Cooperation with the company that has all the needed know-how in our field of interest has proved to be very fruitful. The results of our cooperation will soon be visible on the NK website"- says Tomasz Bia?obrzeg, CTO of Nasza Klasa.

"The NKtalk project posed many technical challenges as well as very tight deadlines because of the marketing plan behind the launch. Our two companies rose to the challenge and proved that with the right team, technical choices and clear vision, it is possible to deliver robust high-performance solutions" -  adds Marcus Taylor, CEO of Erlang Solutions Ltd.
The first and the most important  phase of work on NKtalk has been completed. Currently the messenger is being tested by approximately 500,000 users. When the beta test has been completed, the official premiere of NKtalk will take place.
