Michigan, U.S. Thursday, March 24, 2016, for immediate release
Today, Platform.sh announces the adoption by Perfectly Posh of our Platform as a Service (PaaS) for their online sales operations. Founded in 2011, Perfectly Posh sells naturally based, pampering products across the USA through over 45,000 Independent Consultants. Perfectly Posh has selected Platform.sh Enterprise for their online e-commerce application, migrating to a custom offering designed to fit the high growth demands of a company on the move.
The main reasons for selecting Platform.sh were:
A hosting stack tuned for high performance e-commerce;
Seamless scaling of Web and Database servers during peak periods with no application downtime;
Ability to customize this infrastructure around their specific needs;
Reliability guaranteed with a 99.99% uptime SLA; and
Significant productivity improvements, enabling a change to the development regime that eliminates infrastructure management overheads, and accelerates code though to production via better CI (Continuous Integration) enablement and 100% consistency between environments.
This combination of capabilities allows the business to reduce overall development costs and manage risk when deploying changes into the production environment, reducing the potential for revenue loss, and enabling revenue optimization changes into live during peak traffic periods, providing enormous competitive advantage.
“As we evaluated our hosting options we met with many different companies; most of them said ‘You are exactly the type of customer we want to work with’, but none of them could fit us into the standard offering they wanted to sell us. When we met Platform.sh we were excited, because we found a company that not only had an amazing service, but who were willing to engage with us as a true partner, and were committed to our success. They architected a custom hardware stack that fit our e-commerce application perfectly. We’re excited to grow together.” -Dallas Despain, Director of Engineering, Perfectly Posh
“We are extremely pleased that Perfectly Posh has chosen us to be the foundation upon which they continue their amazing growth. This customer manages one of the largest Drupal Commerce implementations in the world, and to be chosen to help support this mission-critical application is an affirmation of our next generation PaaS and deep knowledge of the e-commerce Use Case.” -Kieron Sambrook-Smith, Chief Commercial Officer, Platform.sh
