The Rack House - driven by technology
We own and admin our own Sun servers, located in professional data centres both in the UK and the USA. Now we've designed and built our own facility which provides a complete backup to all our services at a separate location. This went live in Nov 2012.
We underload our servers - masses of headroom and spare RAM contribute to a very snappy end-user experience. People notice and comment on this frequently.
Our USA kit mirrors digital media and other large files so that response times are fast - worldwide. Most of our clients are "creatives" and we aim to give them an edge...
So our systems are redundant. We operate clusters. We spread our servers around multiple data centres. We use hardware with extensive hot swap capabilities. We back up our backups!
We'll do a Windows server for you if you insist, but all our core systems run Solaris or Debian Linux - designed from the outset for 100% uptime and continuous deployment. Enterprise grade kit and an attention to detail are what set The Rack House apart. Sure, you'll find cheaper competitors, but we're also not fanatics (with prices to match). We believe we've set the price/performance bar at the right height, and our growing client list supports this claim!
