The two companies continueto work together to help DDP YOGAmeet the growing demand for Diamond Dallas Page’s popular fitness program.
“When the Shark Tank contacted us to be on the show, we knew that the increased visibility would be great for business but would be a major body blow to our website,”said Diamond Dallas Page, former WCW heavyweight champion and founder of DDP YOGA. “ScaleArc and Rackspace came through for us when it counted, enabling us to accommodate a massive amount of traffic. In the end, webrought in revenues that were 5x what we would have received from the investors on the show.”
Within 24 hours, ScaleArc and Rackspace architected and deployed a solution for DDP YOGA that would address the anticipated increase in website traffic. Rackspace developed a high-performance web architecture to address the capacity issues,while ScaleArc provided its database traffic management software to ensure the company’s MySQL database environment could handle the increased traffic flow. The ScaleArc software inserts transparently between the databases and web applications creating an abstraction layer that manages SQL traffic flows as needed to ensure the continuous availability of DDP YOGA’s website.
Immediately following the Shark Tankairing, DDP YOGA saw its site traffic balloon to as much as 3,000 percent. Keeping DDP YOGA up and available literally meant hundreds of thousands of dollars for the company.

With ScaleArc, they know that they will have the high availability and performance they need – no matter what the customer demand.”
