Today in Boston, companies from across the globe are gathering to take a closer look at e-retailer products and services for the 2009 Internet Retailer Conference and Expo. In fact, several Rackers as well as some friends from our partner Magento, a leading Open Source eCommerce platform, have made the trip to Beantown to showcase what we can do.
Rackspace joined forces with Magento last year to bring secure and scalable hosting to Magento’s enterprise customers. Magento’s CEO Roy Rubin knows what his customers are looking for:
“Magento backed by Rackspace Fanatical Support is a great option for any online business. The most important aspects of an ecommerce company’s hosting environment are security, scalability, support and uptime. Rackspace is the leading option in the market with proven success hosting the world’s largest brands, and can meet the high demands of the Magento Enterprise customers with a professional, world-class environment. Magento customers can trust that their business is secure, online and ready for business growth.”
Internet retailers are serious about their hosting providers – their livelihood often depends on it – so it’s no surprise that scalability, security and uptime are major drivers when choosing a solution. This is why the Magento and Rackspace partnership has proven successful for many of our customers over the last year.
We recently spoke with Allen N., Vice President at Westside Wholesale, a joint customer of Magento and Rackspace, who had this to say:
“Our eCommerce concerns center around availability, security, compliance and scalability. Magento’s feature-rich and scalable eCommerce platform combined with the 24x7x365 Fanatical Support® and Zero-Downtime Network™ from Rackspace® Hosting allow us to eliminate those worries when it comes to the platform and infrastructure behind our site.”
