When LoveBook, an online retailer of personalized gift books, experienced server crashes due to a spike in web traffic after a national television appearance, they turned to Rackspace Managed Cloud service. Using Managed Cloud combined with Cloud Files, Cloud Load Balancers, Rackspace Email, and Rackspace Hosted SharePoint helps them achieve cost-effective scaling, manage user-generated content, and maintain availability during traffic spikes.
“It’s exactly the blend of support we were looking for. When I call our support team at Rackspace, I feel as if they are working with me, not just for me. They take their support very personally. There is no question in my mind that they love what they do.”
-John Baranowski, Co-founder, LoveBook Online
