We at Rackspace are always excited to see our partners’ successes, and we get even more excited when we see that success recognized. Our partners put considerable time and effort into creating impactful sites and campaigns, and we are proud to play a part by providing cloud and managed hosting to help ensure the website stays up and running so all can enjoy!
