Along with the announcement of the groundbreaking Virgin Galactic SpaceShipTwo roll out is the associated stellar new website. With the eyes of the world watching the news of the first commercial space flights, the website is being used as a key tool to communicate with the hundreds of thousands of people keen to discover more. DediPower Managed Hosting has been selected to provide the stable platform the site will rely upon for the high traffic the site will receive.
To cope with the high bandwidth demand, DediPower has put several custom – built solutions in place, including dedicated servers and a gigabit connectivity to accommodate the high traffic volume. In addition, a 24/7 managed service will be provided to relieve Virgin Galactic of uptime concerns. Ned RocknRoll, Astronaut Experience, Cosmic Brand and Marketing at Virgin Galactic, said, “As a company, Virgin has a pioneering spirit and strong brand values, and it was essential that we worked with a team that understands this. DediPower has stepped up to the challenge, guaranteeing that our primary means of communication with our customers is constantly available. Our customers are very important to us. DediPower understands this and ensures our site will be reliable. I feel completely safe and at ease in DediPower’s very capable hands.”
Craig Martin, CEO at DediPower Managed Hosting, added, “We are delighted to be working with Virgin Galactic and incredibly excited to be a part of this revolutionary space programme. An event of this magnitude sees an inordinate amount of people accessing the website. Our scalable solution is meeting traffic demands, enabling Virgin Galactic to rest assured that its site is being managed with the highest service levels possible.”
In addition to working with the Virgin Galactic team, DediPower has also been working with Virgin over the last year.
