Platform

Since 1976, Skate One has manufactured and distributed high-performance skateboard decks, wheels, bearings, trucks, hardware, clothing, and accessories. They serve both amateur skaters and world-class professionals.

Challenges

Skate One’s website was hosted in a bare metal database server, with virtual web servers and a load balancer. The infrastructure didn’t auto-scale, so they had to manually scale the site when extra capacity was needed, and that meant raising a support ticket. Their team was spinning up delivery environments just to make sure their site could handle the load, thus spending on unused capacity.
