Hosting is Critical
Of course, when it comes to delivering websites to mobile devices throughout the world, the hosting platform is a critical element.
Lars Hartkopf – Head of Marketing at Netbiscuits, explained, “At Netbiscuits we had been using Rackspace® Hosting for some time on a relatively small scale, but the rapid expansion of our global business required an expandable hosting platform to match, and it was Rackspace that offered the ideal upgrade path that was both simple and safe. This allows us the freedom of exponential growth to meet the rapidly rising demand for our mobile web services.”
Easy Choice of Partner
The fact that Rackspace offers hosting on a worldwide scale and matches its product offering with a level of support unsurpassed in the industry, makes the choice of hosting partner very easy. Rackspace handles all the technical details of the server side, while the Netbiscuits team concentrates on what they do best – bringing Mobile Internet to the masses.
