Carbon60 Hosts RogersCup.com on Enterprise Cloud May 20, 2013 Carbon60 Networks (carbon60.com) is proud to announce its continued technical partnership with Tennis Canada to host rogerscup.com: the official website of Canada’s most prestigious tennis tournaments. This August 2nd to 11th many of the world’s top men’s and women’s tennis players will gather to compete at Rexall Centre in Toronto and Uniprix Stadium in Montreal. Among the best run tournaments on the Tour, planning for these premier ATP World Tour and WTA events happens year-round and are a major source of funding for Tennis Canada’s development programs. Hosting rogerscup.com is challenging because traffic to the site spikes exponentially higher than normal just before and during tournament times. In the past, Carbon60 prepared for this anticipated spike in traffic by manually adding (and later removing) physical servers to Tennis Canada’s dedicated server farm. This was time consuming and costly. This year, rogerscup.com will be hosted on Carbon60’s dynamic cloud hosting platform. This enterprise-class web hosting platform uses advanced technology and automated workflows to scale high performance network, compute, and storage resources seamlessly in response to changing workloads. This new capability could not have come at a better time. As Carbon60’s C.E.O., Kelly Beardmore, notes, “Given that Canada’s Milos Raonic is a favorite to be Canada’s first winner of the men’s single title since 1958, we need to be prepared for an unprecedented surge in web traffic to rogerscup.com. Thankfully, our cloud hosting platform was engineered for precisely this scenario. Our cloud platform not only delivers exceptional reliability but works on-demand to meet large expected and unexpected surges in traffic. It is a very bad day when a website falls over because the marketing team hits it out of the park and generates large amounts web traffic. With our large pools of cloud computing resources and integrated global edge delivery network Carbon60 handles these kinds of spikes seamlessly.” In support of Tennis Canada, Carbon60’s staff will also be donating their time at the two venues to provide technical support during the tournaments. We hope to see you there!
