Up Your Game With The Open Cloud

Filed in Cloud Industry Insights by Garrett Heath | May 17, 2013 9:00 am

If your mobile app[1] ever gets a featured spot in an app store, Oprah endorses your product or you make an appearance on ABC’s Shark Tank[2], you are going to experience mind-blowing traffic to your site. Rackspace knows how to keep your app or site online when experiencing a high traffic event[3]. Our customer gdgt knows this first hand as their site has been one of the few to remain accessible while live blogging important Apple announcements amid crushing traffic[4].

We also offer insight into how to take advantage of horizontal scaling in the cloud. By integrating your app with the open cloud API, it can now control the hosting infrastructure to spin up and down servers as needed. And since our cloud is open[5], you never have to worry about your app getting locked in.

Up your game with Rackspace – we got your back.
