Given its rapid growth, Smule needed to locate a datacenter provider that offered all of that, plus the ability to move as fast as their business. If a special event or promotion was going to make usage soar, the company needed to be able to say, I need to have five more racks up right away and have confidence it would be so.
The Internet promised users three things—instant access, 24/7 availability, and that nothing will ever go away. Turns out, these promises are breathtakingly hard to keep. Having Digital Realty as our data center provider gets us as close as possible to that goal.
