Very spiky traffic due to national media attention and seasonality; storing and serving up large amounts of user-generated content

Cloud Servers with a managed service level, Cloud Files, Cloud Load Balancers, Rackspace Hosted SharePoint

BUSINESS OUTCOME:

Handled big traffic with ease; served lots of content; streamlined product development powered by the Rackspace Cloud; enjoyed great support when they needed it most

Rackspace Cloud Files allowed us to create an environment where our user-generated content could be stored ‘on the fly’, allowing each web head to share that content.

Your Managed Cloud team has been great for us. They take their support very personally. There is no question in my mind that they love what they do.
