“ We scheduled three weeks to develop this new feature, but with Cloudant it took only three days. ”
David Wood, CTO, SpaceCraft
Founded in 2010, SpaceCraft is a web-based publishing platform based in Austin, Texas. Thousands of small businesses and individuals use the company’s web-based software and live support to design, manage and promote websites that work across computers, tablets, and mobile devices.
Web-based publishing platform SpaceCraft found that as its client base grew, it was spending an increasing amount of time managing its databases, distracting its focus from product innovation.
SpaceCraft chose to adopt IBM® Cloudant®, a highly flexible and scalable fully managed database-as-a-service platform built for the cloud, to store and manage its growing volumes of data.
Cloudant frees SpaceCraft from data administration and streamlines product development. High availability and consistent performance help keep its clients’ websites open for business.
