Twelve Years of Fanatical Support®

Twelve years ago Rackspace launched with the promise of offering something unprecedented – a global hosting provider whose support was unparalleled in enthusiasm and knowledge. Today, we offer a growing selection of hosting products with that same level of Fanatical Support® that launched us on day one.

Thank you to all our employees, partners and customers who have helped us to become one of the worldwide leaders in hosting. We look forward to many more years and thousands more success stories.

Rackspace in Action:

LivingSocial enables people to share reviews of their favorite movies, books, games, music, restaurants and more. In a few short years, LivingSocial has grown to more than 90 million users, and is among the more popular Facebook applications. With this explosive growth came the need to properly scale servers and other infrastructure to address the mounting demands of traffic.

Originally with another hosting company, CTO and Co-Founder, Aaron Batalion realized the need for a hosting provider that could effectively serve as an extension of his team. He turned to Rackspace and formalized the relationship after a brief courtship.

Batalion recounts the daily support he receives from Rackspace, “Rackspace provided us with three different firewalls in three days when our growth was exploding. It took only hours to stop the bottleneck caused by users flooding to our site because I can call Rackspace and say ‘here’s the problem, here’s what we need, how do we solve this.’ Rackspace’s Fanatical Support® is real.”
