“When Caribbean Airlines Limited was formed, its aim was to be a lean, focused and profitable organization that leveraged outsourced internal systems to achieve this goal. With more than 1,000 mail users, we needed a stable, robust and experienced business relationship who was able to handle this sort of business-critical function for us in a short time frame,” Derek De Gannes, vice president of Information Services, Caribbean Airlines. “Rackspace came highly recommended and assisted us with the transition from internally managed email to Managed Microsoft Exchange from Rackspace seamlessly. I would recommend Rackspace to any organization that wants to focus its attention on the core business by leaving email management to a specialist.”
“Email is a mission-critical business function that requires a solid infrastructure and highly-skilled staff in order to perform reliably,” said Emil Sayegh, director, Product Marketing, Rackspace Managed Hosting. “Rackspace’s mail portfolio was created in response to customer demand for email services that are backed by the same Fanatical Support that we provide for our hosting services. Our suite of messaging services has received great reception from the market and we have recently surpassed the milestone of delivering reliable, flexible email solutions to more than 100,000 users.”
