For LunarWeb Founder & CEO, Tim Martoccio, providing his high-profile clients with a secure, reliable and boutique web hosting service is essential for them to stay in the public eye at all times - 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, anywhere in the world. They can’t accept unscheduled downtime - and neither can he. Website 404 messages, for example during the Superbowl or Olympics, would be a complete disaster.
When an existing partner closed their Chicago data center on Tim with two month’s notice, they were “put in a bind”. Thankfully, they had just recently migrated 12-14 customers to Sunlight for testing and not only did it “just work”, they were experiencing great results - it was faster, better and smoother than any solution they’d used before. So Tim asked Sunlight to help do what he thought would be the impossible - migrate all of their clients into their Phoenix data center with their existing hardware. The LunarWeb and Sunlight teams set about making the impossible possible - Sunlight even wrote a dedicated driver to make it all work. And when it did, they knew that they’d found a partner they could trust and rely on. Other providers would have forced them to invest in more hardware, instead of using what they already had.
