"Our Cloud Servers handle traffic peaks with great ease."
Robert Costerus, Q8
From physical servers to a Private Cloud
Q8 and Combell have been collaborating over the years to host websites and complex online applications. First with shared or dedicated servers. But Q8 recently transferred its entire IT infrastructure to the Cloud. "The Cloud provides us with the flexibility we need to cope with the fluctuating number of visitors", says IT Business Consultant and Network Manager Robert Costerus.
"A single mailing can sometimes attract tens of thousands of extra visitors on our websites. So, you need to have an infrastructure that can cope with this. Such as our Private Cloud. "
Marketing requires room for manoeuvre
Robert Costerus: "Our marketing teams and advertising partners are very creative people. Every time, they imagine successful campaigns and ideas. Having these actions obstructed due to limitations of IT equipment is the last thing you would want. But, in the past, there was sometimes no choice. Our own servers were not able to cope with this increase in capacity. And, online, Q8 could thus never grow faster than our hardware. That is, of course, totally unacceptable!"
Q8's Private Cloud makes it possible to have new actions 'up and running' within one working day. And that is exactly what the Q8 marketing teams need.
Combell guided the transition
During the transition process, Combell was a real partner of Q8. Robert Costerus: "It was Combell who suggested to migrate to the Cloud. They also prepared all the necessary steps and thought along with us the whole time. And today, they are always available when we have a question or a problem. Through a single contact person who knows our case very well. It could not be any simpler."
