CUSTOMER’S BUSINESS:

Cottage Rental.

CHALLENGES:

With 70% of business online it was vital to have a totally reliable hosting partner offering scalable cloud servers that could adapt to demand and switch off during quiet periods to save money.

RACKSPACE SOLUTION:

Managed Cloud Hosting, RackConnect

BUSINESS OUTCOME:

Hosting that copes with the highs and lows of holiday traffic.

A great deal of our success has been our ability to cope with very large peaks of traffic at key times without the damaging downtime or online queues of frustrated customers, something that would have been commercially impossible without Rackspace Cloud technology.

Andrew Jenkins, Lead Developer, Holiday Cottages 

The real advantage of using the Rackspace cloud has been the fact that we can add in limitless server capacity to meet the high volume of bookings we experience during January, February and March, but equally we can shut down that additional capacity when customer demand is not so high
