In the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region, companies are hungry for speed and reliability. We frequently hear it from our customers: improved speed and reliability set their businesses apart from their competitors. Swift application performance equips companies to win.
Performance issues are at the heart of why many apps don’t meet user expectations and die a slow death. While the user might see a single application, on the backend there are many moving parts that must align in order to deliver a consistent experience.
Underperforming servers and failure in the cloud can lead to overly complicated architectures, server sprawl and operational nightmares. When that happens, your architects end up spending precious development time compensating for cloud deficiency rather than building the next killer app.
Since releasing Performance Cloud Servers late last year, we’ve been thrilled by the response from customers. We knew that enhancing speed, throughput, reliability and scalability would be embraced, but it’s still heartening to hear about the measurable impact directly from customers. Fanatical Support as a high-performing type of service was also a common theme in these customer stories.
TrueAbility, a member of the Rackspace Startup Program, is a technical assessment platform that allows tech professionals to prove themselves in a live environment. The startup leverages the Rackspace Cloud to spin up servers, then apply and break technologies on them, and deliver questions to the end user, which they are required to solve by performing real work. The TrueAbility system grades the tech pros’ work and delivers results.
