ABC’s Shark Tank is an intense way for budding startups to achieve funding, and preparation for an appearance on the show goes far beyond just the pitch and presentation.
I’m not going to lie: standing in front of Mark Cuban and the other sharks on ABC’s Shark Tank is intimidating. And standing in front of them – and up to 8 million viewers – in ugly Christmas sweaters is enough to make you, well, sweat.
When it feels like the whole world is watching, you need a web site that can handle a massive traffic spike. For Villy Custom, a Rackspace Cloud Sites customer and Rackspace Startup Program member, that spike was roughly 3.2 million hits in a span of just about 25 minutes.
