When you’re an up-and-coming free blog service like Posterous, with some big name users on your books, then you need to ensure your web hosting is up to scratch.
To that end, Posterous has chosen The Rackspace Cloud to handle its hosting requirements.
The move means that the multimedia files users send to the Posterous service, for publication and dissemination via a number of other online services, will be stored on Rackspace’s Cloud Files.
Also being handled is company email and a range of application servers.
Posterous co-founder Sachin Agrawal said that the new deal means that the company can add new servers on the fly to cope with spikes in demand.
