GoCompare (part of GoCo Group a data-led FinTech, listed on the London Stock Exchange), allows consumers to identify the best financial deals. Founded in 2006 as the UK’s first price comparison website to focus on product features as well as price, has more than five million website visits a month and more than 300 commercial partners.
The Obstacles They Faced
To keep ahead of the competition and continue offering customers a great way to save time and money, GoCompare has been developing new services which require a solid infrastructure foundation. At the same time, it needed to be able to manage unexpected spikes in traffic without impacting the user experience.
What We Achieved Together
Working with Rackspace Professional Services and Microsoft Azure experts, GoCompare has begun migrating its infrastructure to Microsoft Azure in a phased approach. This allows the business to trial different workloads in the Azure environment without clashing with other internal initiatives. Following the first phase of the migration, the site’s sustainability, response times and availability have improved. This is laying the groundwork to support ambitious future plans to broaden the GoCompare offering.
