Challenges

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.
