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 servers linked to cloud servers via 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.
