Wirz

Wirz is a full service agency, highly regarded for delivering compelling, insight driven and strategic advertising and marketing campaigns that stand out from the crowd.

CUSTOMER’S BUSINESS:

Wirz’s service range covers the entire communications mix of corporate and marketing communications.

CHALLENGES:

Hosting a wide range of solutions from microsites and online gaming to social media and complex corporate websites, Wirz had to continually push the boundaries to deliver media rich and interactive solutions. This required an infrastructure that was both agile and resilient.

RACKSPACE SOLUTION:

Rackspace Hybrid Cloud

BUSINESS OUTCOME:

This best of both worlds approach ensured Wirz could exploit fully the high levels of performance and security offered by a dedicated infrastructure plus harness the limitless scalability, flexibility and elasticity of the cloud to deliver innovative and responsive digital campaigns.

With such high profile clients and campaigns any blip in uptime or poor customer experience would not only look bad for us but also for our clients.  We decided to move into the cloud to achieve the scalability, global reach and flexibility for growth we required, and furthermore decided that Rackspace was the best partner to help us do this.

The Hybrid solution architected by Rackspace could not be better.  We have the robust backbone we need without sacrificing on agility.  The hybrid cloud allows us to spin capacity up and down to cope with demand whilst the dedicated hardware provides a resilient backbone.  What is more it has given us a big economic advantage.  Flexible billing has meant that we only pay for what we use and can remain competitive whilst never compromising on innovation and imagination.
