During peak season, Air & Water, Inc, one of the Internet’s largest independent appliance retailers, can generate thousands of dollars per hour. Site downtime means the loss of revenue. After running a web server on-premises and dealing with connectivity issues taking them offline for hours at a time and needing more hardware to meet increasing demand, Adam Hart, IT Manager, Air & Water, Inc, chose Rackspace. They haven’t had a moment of unscheduled downtime since.

Why Rackspace? “We wanted to go with an established company. With Rackspace, we knew we had a hosting provider that will be around for the long term.” Adam Hart, IT Manager, Air & Water, Inc.
