The challenge.

We found that maintaining in-house hardware or even renting rack space were resource-consuming and too expensive when it came to ensuring high server availability and fault-tolerance.
We were planning to launch operations in the Baltics region and our goal was to find a dedicated servers provider, which would suit our needs. We have customers from all over the world, therefore powerful hardware and bandwidth, high availability, LAN support, KVM, reliable service level, reasonable pricing and 24/7 support were our main criteria for choosing a new partner.

If we haven’t found a trustworthy server provider, we would have been compelled to employ an engineering team to enable 24/7 support and we would have experienced more significant downtimes related to hardware/networking outages. Back then our engineers were fully involved in maintenance instead of being focused on product development.

The solution.

We found Cherry Servers to be a good fit, as they fully met our expectations. We were particularly surprised by the bandwidth and internet infrastructure quality all over the region. We are happy to have a professional 24x7 support here at Cherry Servers and experience no "hardware/networking" issues. The management team is great, as the people there are very sensitive towards our customer experience.
