Architecting An Ecommerce Site: An Insider’s Look

Filed in Cloud Industry Insights by Joseph Palumbo | July 25, 2013 3:00 pm

Many of our ecommerce customers wonder how they can take advantage of cloud computing while remaining PCI compliant. With the hybrid cloud[1], they can take advantage of the scalability of our Cloud Servers[2] while using a database on a dedicated server to process payment transactions. The best part is that if you have questions on how to make this happen, our Cloud Launch Team is going to be there to help you out.

We want to give you a behind the scenes peek into what goes on after a customer calls with a question on how to architect a solution. At Rackspace, not only do you get solid hosting to support your application, you also get a team of experts who can help you architect your ecommerce solution[3]. If you are an ecommerce business looking to leverage the hybrid cloud, I invite you to watch this video[4] in which my Cloud Launch Team takes you through a real life example of how they would architect the solution.

If you have any more questions, or would like to speak to one of the members on my team, give us a call here at Rackspace and ask to speak to a Launch Manager.

For an intro to the Cloud Launch Process[5] and the Cloud Launch Team, be sure to check out Joseph’s previous post and video.
