I have personally known Kraig and Kristen Kaipers, founders of Pangea, for a while – as customers of Rackspace. Wherever there is a natural disaster, you can bet that the Pangea team is there involved in helping non-profits react quickly to help in the affected areas.
These guys are unbelievable in their dedication to their customers. They are the unsung heroes behind the relief efforts for these natural disasters. If it was not for them, non profits helping in these natural disasters would be getting help much slower. What made it very personal to me here in Central Texas, is knowing that Pangea used Mosso to help in Hurricanes Ike and Gustav. Hurricane Ike had battered the Texas coast, and many of the homes of Rackspace and Mosso employees, including mine, filled up with relatives and friends escaping the fierce weather on the Texas coast.
Mosso was able to help Pangea scale its software-as-a service solution seamlessly, and handle the huge traffic spikes that resulted from all the non-profits using Pangea’s great solution. Pangea’s services have a time critical component to the local communities and the non-profits who serve them.
Our systems are designed to instantly scale whenever our customers, like Pangea Foundation, most need it to scale. It was very satisfying to also see our vision for Cloud scalability providing real value to Pangea, and the victims of these Hurricanes.
