Rackspace Wins Online Game Publisher
San Antonio-based Rackspace revealed today that online game publisher Uforia Inc. has deployed Rackspace's Email service across its enterprise. The financial impact of the customer win was not disclosed. Founded in 2008, Uforia specializes in massively multiplayer online role-playing games. Rackspace quoted Uforia's marketing manager, Chris Keswani, as saying his company has been able to reallocate more than 400 hours of IT resources toward core projects by outsourcing Rackspace's hosted e-mail-in-the-cloud services. Founded in 1998 and headquartered in San Antonio, Rackspace operates nine data centers, including two in the United Kingdom and one in Hong Kong.
