Rackspace supports Eagle Eye move to Google Cloud
Rackspace reports that Eagle Eye’s migration to Google Cloud has enabled the digital marketing platform to scale its loyalty and reward interactions for retailers and brands by 556% in FY18.
Eagle Eye says that it is now able to process up to 3,000 API requests per second. The migration also enables improved performance, enhanced resilience and additional layers of security, it adds. This supported 403.7 million redemptions and interactions on Eagle Eye’s AIR platform globally during the period for brands including Tesco, Heineken, Pizza Express, Greggs, M&S and Loblaw.
“From their continuous support to their excellent culture, Rackspace has been an ideal partner to guide us on this journey,” says Steve Rothwell, Founder and CTO, Eagle Eye.
“By consolidating our technology estate across the globe, we’ve been able to create scale on-demand, rather than working with the continuous expense of ‘always-on’ datacentres. What we’ve done here is achieve real efficiency, establishing a single set of build scripts, code releases and deployment methods for all our Google Cloud Platforms, even earning the project recognition at Google Next 2019, seeing Rackspace named as Google Cloud Migration Partner of the Year.”
