“Though our previous server was (mostly) solid,” explains Timothy Laurent co-founder of FortuneKookie.com, “we were fearful of explosive growth and our ability to upscale our architecture with that growth. The last thing we want is a digg-effect situation where 10,000’s of potential users are bouncing off of an error page thrown up by our server. A downed server means lost revenue. The Rackspace Cloud’s Cloud Sites offering has given us the opportunity to add the next five million users without a second thought to the capacity of our servers,” says Laurent. “And, any questions or concerns that have come up, have been quickly answered by The Rackspace Cloud’s fantastic customer service folks.”

While these little slips of paper may not be the type of fortune to pull you out of the economic recession, they do stand a chance to make you smile. How often have you been to a Chinese restaurant and gotten a cool fortune that you wanted to save? There aren’t many sensible options for keeping those little slips of paper – you can stash them in your wallet or purse, but we all know that they will eventually disappear.

FortuneKookie.com solves this problem for fortune collectors everywhere. FortuneKookie is a website that makes storing and viewing fortunes simple and fun. FortuneKookie.com allows users to save and share their fortune cookie fortunes in a personalized account.

Since FortuneKookie is optimized for mobile browsing, people can also store their fortunes directly from their table at the restaurant. Or, if they want to wait until they get home, they can visit FortuneKookie.com. On this fully-featured site, fortune fanatics can extend beyond their own destiny by also reading the fortunes of their friends.

There’s even a FortuneKookie Facebook app that allows users to store their fortunes without ever leaving their Facebook page – and, if their friend has the app in their box, they can check out each other’s fortunes. The Facebook app box leads the user to an interactive Flash fortune cookie. Fortune finders can break open these cookies to see their own fortunes, their friend’s fortunes, or seek out new fortunes altogether.

Additionally, FortuneKookie.com continues to ramp-up its marketing efforts, including: printing FortuneKookie.com on the back of fortune cookie messages, expanding its ability to message its 17,000 followers on Twitter, and having articles published on MakeUseOf.com.

Since Facebook, mobile phones, and other miscellaneous marketing efforts can be the bearers of excessive traffic, FortuneKookie.com was wise to plan ahead. “Though our previous server was (mostly) solid,” explains Timothy Laurent co-founder of FortuneKookie.com, “we were fearful of explosive growth and our ability to upscale our architecture with that growth. The last thing we want is a digg-effect situation where 10,000’s of potential users are bouncing off of an error page thrown up by our server. A downed server means lost revenue. The Rackspace Cloud’s Cloud Sites offering has given us the opportunity to add the next five million users without a second thought to the capacity of our servers,” says Laurent. “And, any questions or concerns that have come up, have been quickly answered by The Rackspace Cloud’s fantastic customer service folks.”

Whatever you do, just be sure to swing by and get your fortune first – who knows what words of wisdom that little slip of digital paper holds for you…
