Customer Stories: YouCaring


Our Customer

YouCaring is a free crowdfunding platform that empowers people to help others overcome hardships and enjoy happier, healthier lives.

The Obstacles They Faced

YouCaring needed a robust, managed platform that could handle a massive load of concurrent users, with up to 20,000 donations per minute.

What We Achieved Together

The Rackspace Database Services team was there to help make sure YouCaring’s platform could withstand the crushing traffic to its site.
