CHICAGO, March 13 — Hostway Corporation, a leading provider of cloud, managed and hybrid cloud services, today announced that it will provide free cloud hosting for two months to any school in the NCAA Division I men's college basketball tournament in order to accommodate their growing infrastructure needs during the event.
Reaching the tournament can bring unprecedented exposure to a smaller school, and an upset victory can increase that exposure exponentially. The related traffic spikes can wreak havoc on university web hosts. Cloud hosting is perfect for this situation, as it allows websites to quickly react to the changes in traffic and avoid costly downtime.
It's not just colleges that face fluctuations due to the tournament. City websites, ticket vendors and hotels can experience a significant increase in traffic as the event comes to their town. As people begin to make travel arrangements and visit e-commerce sites to purchase promotional items, unprepared websites could crash and lose potential income.
