The move to AWS Cloud is part of driving an innovative culture in a heavily regulated sector. Rackspace provide a real understanding of how you run operations and provide Fanatical Support for AWS. Rackspace has a huge history of supporting production environments for thousands of companies worldwide so it was a natural choice for us. My long-term plan is to focus on what we’re really good at doing, which is developing our product - and work with our partners to support our cloud move and post-migration operations.
