He said that at peak the company's servers handle 7,000 requests per second or 10 billion requests a month. 
 
The company has also developed its own content distribution network. Combined with over 30 servers distributed at five locations around the world, it can process requests faster for global clients.
 
The company has been profitable from day one, said Chopra, adding it has not raised any external funding to fund operations.

"We have recently shifted our sights to expand aggressively internationally, launch new products and on [the] engineering front," Chopra said.
