Hylete is a direct-to-consumer brand that creates premium performance athletic apparel – built for the modern athlete and priced for everyday use. What started with one training short in 2012 has grown into an extensive line of men’s and women’s apparel, backpacks, and the first Hylete cross-training shoe.
Hylete was looking for a solid, scalable cloud delivery solution that would ensure 100% uptime and blazing-fast performance for their online storefront (hylete.com), while providing visibility into their infrastructure, server performance, errors, code issues, etc. and greater levels of control. Their previous hosting solution was a “black box” in this regard. Hylete was also looking for an extension to their technology team, one with proven ecommerce and infrastructure expertise.
