Skinit is the industry leader in personalized and branded products for electronic devices. The company creates high quality cases and skins to protect smartphones, gaming devices, tablets, laptops, audio devices, and more, and serves brands including the NFL, MLB, NBA, Marvel, and Hello Kitty.
Skinit has 3 – 5 million SKUs in its existing ecommerce catalog, spanning thousands of categories. The company also manages 10 – 15 storefronts for its Fortune 500 customers. Skinit.com required a cloud delivery infrastructure that could rapidly scale to cater to huge traffic spikes caused by marketing email blasts or other kinds of promotional activities, especially during the Holiday Season. They didn’t want to settle for anything less than 100% uptime.
