The web hosting business at Go Daddy faces increasing computing demands as it strives to meet the needs of existing customers and tries to attract new customers. The company selected A10 to improve the consolidation ratio by eightfold per High Availability (HA) pair over the existing Cisco implementation, while simultaneously delivering resiliency, extremely fast failover and security protection.

Tim Parker, director of networking at Go Daddy, said, “Small business customer success online is largely influenced by the technology and support employed. Using A10, we are able to provide the same, top-level service our nearly 11 million customers have come to expect while improving reliability and keeping costs down.”
