Launched in the UK in 2012, gohenry is a prepaid Visa debit card and mobile app with unique parental controls designed exclusively for 6-18 year-olds to help them learn good money habits in an increasingly cashless society.
The Obstacles They Faced
With ambitious growth plans, gohenry decided to explore the potential of public cloud and turned to Rackspace Technology for help. Alongside this, the multicloud experts at Rackspace Technology continue to provide private cloud support, through a custom hybrid environment development for their payments application.
What We Achieved Together
Rackspace Technology supported gohenry throughout the migration to ensure a smooth journey from the private cloud environment to public cloud. gohenry now has an infrastructure with the flexibility to scale with its growing customer base and support future growth plans in the US. Since migrating 99% of its services to Google Cloud, gohenry, the prepaid Visa debit card and app designed exclusively for 6-18-year-olds, doubled its customer base between 2018 and 2020, reaching one million customers.
