BUSINESS OUTCOME:

Our sites get about a million hits a day, so load balancing is vital to keeping our business up and running. With Rackspace Cloud Load Balancers, we know we have a reliable platform, and it’s a big cost savings, too. The load balancers are definitely handling a lot—we’ve had no problems, and they’re scaling beyond what we can imagine.
