You’re in Good Company
Rackspace (RAX) is a NYSE publicly traded company with solid financials and a proven track record. Your site is hosted in the same building as some serious heavy hitters: American Express, Verizon, Walt Disney, Marvel, Atari and Microsoft to name just a few.
All RPMWare websites are built for and deployed on the Microsoft platform.
.NET Framework 3.5 – aka ASP.NET
ASP.NET is a scalable, fast and robust web application framework. In laymen’s terms it’s what we use to program your website. It’s the same framework that powers sites like microsoft.com and MySpace. Proven. Reliable. Fast.
SQL Server 2008 x64
Not to brag, but out database is huge. It is bulging with a massive product catalog and all the other records required to run your successful online business. We rely on the proven performance and reliability of Microsoft SQL Server. 64-bit means we can take full advantage of all the power our DELL servers offer.
Windows Server 2008 x64
None of this would work without a great operating system. Microsoft Windows Server 2008 x64 is the latest and greatest from (you guessed it) Microsoft. Constantly monitored and patched by Rackspace you’ll never worry about IT headaches again.
Amazon Web Services
All files uploaded to RPMWare are securely stored on Amazon S3, a scalable storage system that provides the storage for Amazon.com, the other Amazon websites and thousands of independent sites using Amazon Web Services. Think of S3 as a huge, redundant, fully backed up file server cluster with a huge pipe connecting it to the net.
CloudFront is a content delivery network (CDN) built and supported by Amazon.com. It’s similar to Amazon S3 with a very important advantage. Everything you look at on the Internet needs to be downloaded from a server somewhere. If those servers happen to be closer to you physically you’re content will load faster. A CDN maintains servers around the country (and the globe) and uses specialized algorithms to load content from the servers closest physically to your users.
The end result is another speed boost for your website as images are loaded from servers physically closer to your users. Wherever they happen to be.
