Rackspace has announced that Ugam has successfully deployed its Managed Cloud Portfolio for its business. Ugam opted for Rackspace Cloud Servers in order to hav better control and management of business challenges created by complex workloads and seasonal workload spikes while managing costs. The five-year relationship with Rackspace has enabled Ugam to effortlessly balance seasonal workload spikes, increase productivity by 20 percent and cut costs by 40 percent.
Speaking about the association, Ajit Melarkode, Managing Director for Rackspace Asia Pacific, said, “Primarily, Ugam faced the classic IT dilemma of how to avoid investing in and implementing a sufficiently large infrastructure capable of handling the demand peaks, even though it may sit idle for significant periods of time. So evaluating and accounting for this situation, we suggested our Managed Cloud portfolio and the intelligence of our Cloud Servers to help meet this challenge”.
On the other hand, Sridhar Sharma, Chief Technology Officer for Ugam, said, “Ideally, we wanted a solution that allowed us to pay for service and support only when we needed it, enabling us to save on budget and management resources when things slowed down. Rackspace has proactively helped us maintain our uptime with its Fanatical Support. The company continually goes above and beyond what we expect and keeps us apprised of server space threshold levels, eliminating any negative performance issues that could impact our customers.”
Rackspace has helped Ugam to smoothly handle complex computations and huge transactional volumes and the speed to quickly deliver market intelligence needed to support mission-critical business decisions. It also enables Ugam to easily accommodate seasonal spikes in workload, without compromising performance.
