Cloud Servers and Cloud Files allow eCommerce retailers to upgrade their online capacity in minutes.
Handle peak sales periods with cost effective scaling.
With Rackspace Cloud Servers and Cloud Files, ecommerce companies can handle spikes in website traffic with ease, secure in the knowledge that capacity can be added or removed on demand, via the customer portal, or automatically via API. Whether your business has a busy hour, day, week or month, the on-demand model means you only have to pay for the capacity you need. This means that you can reduce your costs by scaling down your online infrastructure during quiet periods – since when you scale back your infrastructure, you also scale back your costs. Then when demand picks up, you can scale your cloud ecommerce solution – and grow your business.
Rackspace Cloud Files also allows you to speed up delivery of images and media content (videos, documents, files etc) from your website, using the world-class Akamai Content Delivery Network (CDN)
