(The Hosting News) – PageTiger, the fastest growing online publishing platform in the UK, has credited the server hosting provided by RapidSwitch for helping it win a clutch of new contracts at the start of 2013.
Surrey-based PageTiger’s customer base is growing by over 25% every month, with organisations including the military charity Help For Heroes and car manufacturer Jaguar selecting it to deliver their publications as interactive online magazines.
RapidSwitch is a leading European supplier of self-managed dedicated server solutions and part of UK cloud computing company iomart Group plc which was recently voted the No 1 Managed Service Provider in EMEA by MSPmentor.
At its data centre in Maidenhead, RapidSwitch provides a streamlined IaaS solution which has facilitated the growth of PageTiger’s platform. RapidSwitch provides high end dedicated servers and firewalls as well as backup, utilising diverse fibre connections to the off-site NAS space in iomart Group’s city of London data centre for disaster recovery purposes.
Henry Weston, Commercial Director of PageTiger, says, “From a traditional contract publishing business with less than 50 clients, we’ve now grown to the point where we now have over 2000 registered users. RapidSwitch has given us the reliable support we’ve needed to expand our business. Our hosting partnership has been a fantastic foundation on which to grow.”
Neil Christie, Commercial Director of RapidSwitch, says, “RapidSwitch has staff on-premise to provide first to third-line technical support for dedicated servers at our Maidenhead data centre. As PageTiger has found, we work hard to understand and accommodate the very different needs of all our clients and we’re delighted to be part of its success story.”
PageTiger won the award for Best Business for Innovation and Technology in 2011 which was presented to the company by Business Secretary Vince Cable.
