It’s that time of year when ecommerce businesses are battening down the digital hatches for the holiday season rush.
But considering the critical importance of your website, maximizing its effectiveness shouldn’t be a once-a-year event. You should be constantly asking yourself: is my site performant and secure? Will it hold up under a major traffic spike — expected or unexpected? If the answer is no, you need to consider replatforming or upgrading sooner rather than later — or risk major losses both in terms of sales and brand perception.
For businesses running on Magento, it’s important to understand that optimizing your website’s performance and uptime goes deeper than the application layer. You need access to specialists who also know how to optimize the underlying infrastructure technologies — whether you deploy Magento in your on-premises data center or with a cloud service provider.
Rackspace can help. We have extensive expertise across the world’s leading clouds; as such, we can help you identify which ones can best support Magento depending on your unique requirements. And whichever platforms you choose, we have the expertise to help you get the most out of your investments.

We also provide a wide range of security services to help protect your customers’ sensitive data and safeguard your brand’s reputation. In a world where prominent breaches are in the news every day, and the average cost of a breach is $3.62 million, cybersecurity specialists are incredibly hard to come by. Gaining cost-effective access to the tools and expertise you need to minimize business risk can be a major differentiator.
The 2017 holiday shopping season will be here before we know it. Given the importance of your ecommerce site — and the backend applications and infrastructure that supports it — it’s never too late to look ahead to next year.
