Rackspace Managed Hosting, the fastest-growing managed hosting provider, today announced that it has signed a hosting agreement with Miller Brewing Company.
Rackspace provides the managed web hosting infrastructure, security and Fanatical SupportÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢ for all of Miller Brewing’ s consumer-facing web sites, including domains offering consumer product information, online promotions and interactive entertainment.
Miller Brewing runs its enterprise hosting platform on both Linux and Windows to leverage the individual strengths of each operating system. The Windows servers within the company’ s configuration perform superior database functions, while the Linux servers are relied upon for their advanced web traffic and tracking capabilities. The separate operating systems work in tandem seamlessly to deliver on the complex needs of Miller Brewing’ s family of branded web sites which are essential to the company’ s marketing efforts.
“We found Rackspace’ s deep expertise with both Windows and Linux and strong partnerships with Microsoft and Red Hat very attractive,” said Debbie Zenner, associate relationship marketing manager, Miller Brewing Company. “We knew that Rackspace could help us deploy a multi-OS environment optimized to support our most critical consumer-facing sites.”
Miller Brewing elected to migrate its web infrastructure from another service provider to Rackspace’ s Zero-Downtime Network to increase reliability and gain efficiencies. Rackspace also offered Miller Brewing flexible pricing on a scalable platform that will grow with their needs over time.
“Rackspace’ s proactive service and ability to deliver a zero downtime guarantee gives us better performance at a lower cost,” added Zenner.
“Miller Brewing recognized the need for a proactive and responsive hosting partner to be the foundation for their online presence,” said Glenn Reinus, senior vice president, worldwide sales, Rackspace Managed Web Site Hosting. “Our solid financial history and company stability gives our customers peace-of-mind that we will be able to grow with them for a long time to come.”
Rackspace provides Miller Brewing with a fully managed hosting solution built upon Dell PowerEdge servers running both Microsoft Windows and Red Hat Enterprise Linux, complete with multiple firewalls and load balancers.
