Customer Stories: Science Warehouse

Science Warehouse

Our Customer

Based in Leeds, Science Warehouse provides spend management solutions to both public and private organisations across the UK, Ireland and Australia. Its technology drives efficient procurement processes within businesses, benefitting both buyers and suppliers. 

The Obstacles They Faced

Science Warehouse wanted to drive innovation in its product line, but its previous infrastructure could not provide the flexibility and growth that the team endeavoured to attain. While the team had experience of using AWS, they hadn’t used it to build products suitable for deploying at scale in production. 

What We Achieved Together

Using Rackspace Fanatical Support® for AWS in conjunction with a physically managed VMware environment, meant Science Warehouse navigated a smooth transition to hybrid cloud. With Rackspace expertise, Science Warehouse has innovated its existing product portfolio, ensuring a strong relationship with buyers and suppliers. The hybrid cloud model, allowed Science Warehouse to accelerate the rate of development and deliver three major product releases in the first half of the year, giving it confidence to deliver further innovation in future.
