Isuzu Commercial Truck of America Selects Rackspace for Managed Hosting Services; Previous Customer Service Experience Sends Isuzu Looking for Fanatical Support(TM).

SAN ANTONIO -- Rackspace Managed Hosting, a leading global provider of managed hosting services, today announced the signing of a hosting agreement with Isuzu Commercial Truck of America, one of the world's largest distributors of medium-duty trucks. Rackspace now provides managed hosting for Isuzu Commercial Truck's customer-facing Web site as well as complete data backup, storage and retrieval services for data, utilizing a powerful suite of technologies paired with Rackspace's Fanatical Support(TM).

Isuzu Commercial Truck of America, Inc. relocated its configuration from a previous hosting provider to improve customer service and responsiveness, and Rackspace's Fanatical Support(TM) was a key consideration. Rackspace offered Isuzu Linux expertise and competitive pricing, but the most important factor was Rackspace's Fanatical Support(TM), including 24x7x365 live support, a Zero-Downtime Network(TM), one-hour hardware replacement, instant emergency ticket response and multiple tier-one bandwidth providers.

"We initiated our search to find a responsive hosting provider that we could reach on the phone live at any time. Direct contact became important after our experience without it," said John Mohler, manager, marketing communications at Isuzu Commercial Truck of America. "Rackspace was recommended to us as both a reliable hosting provider and a reputable business partner that would work closely with us -- like an extension of our own IT department. We now experience the same level of customer service at 2 a.m. as we do at 2 p.m."

Isuzu Commercial Truck's Web site serves as a public-facing marketing and communications tool as well as a support tool for customers and dealers. The company's "Get a Quote" software application provides customers with a customized quote from local Isuzu Commercial Vehicles dealers to find the suitable truck for their business needs.

"As a leader in the commercial vehicle industry, Isuzu Commercial Truck relies heavily on a Web infrastructure that is secure, reliable and scalable," said Glenn Reinus, senior vice president of sales, Rackspace Managed Hosting. "We have invested heavily in building a business to deliver exactly these capabilities. Rackspace's multiple monitoring systems keep tabs on Isuzu's Web configuration, while our 24x7 dedicated support teams ensure 100 percent uptime and the flexibility to scale according to their business needs."

Rackspace provides Isuzu Commercial Truck of America with a fully managed hosting solution running Red Hat Enterprise Linux, advanced monitoring services, managed backup and MySQL database services.
