Every two years, one of the biggest events in the UK fundraising calendar is Comic Relief's Red Nose Day. Their facing challenges were create a virtual web infrastructure to handle traffic peaks, maintain 100 percent uptime and reduce the amount of hardware running year round. They chose Riverbed to overcome these challenges. They deployed Riverbed Stingray Traffic Manager virtual appliance software, running on a VMware virtual infrastructure. The benefits of deploying Riverbed's solution are real-time site performance measuring, 100 percent uptime during peak periods, reporting and statistical information supports strategic decision making.
