Cheezburger is a Seattle-based company founded in 2007 that is home to multiple weblog sites, such as I Can Has Cheezburger, FAIL Blog, Know Your Meme and Memebase. Since they have millions of users each day the web engineers at Cheezburger must make sure that each user experience is fast and reliable. After evaluating other dedicated service providers, Jeff Brown, Cheezburger’s CTO decided that Wowrack was the best option for his team, hence they utilized Wowrack’s Seattle (Tukwila) facility as their primary “home” data center which resulted in increased scalability for Cheezburger’s rapidly changing hosting needs, Cost savings of dedicated hosting services versus operating an in-house data center, an extension of their own IT team, available to service their needs 24/7/365 and ability to have a customized solution with outstanding connectivity for their high-traffic needs. “Wowrack is a great partner!
