Founded by brothers Ashley and Thomas Gullen, Construct is a gaming startup that allows the creation of computer games without the need for programming knowledge.
To launch a new version of its software in Construct 3, Construct needed a new website to cope with increasing demands. Rackspace was there to build the Azure infrastructure, managing the cloud deployment and setting up processes to deal with any issues.
Previously when something went wrong with its hosting environment, Construct would have to deal with the problem. Now Rackspace is there to pick up any problems, giving Construct developers the time to focus on doing what they love.
