British Heart Foundation modernises IT

British Heart Foundation modernises IT
Friday September 27 2019

The British Heart Foundation (BHF) is modernising its IT to support a more robust website and enhance its online retail store

It has used Rackspace to help its migration to Microsoft Azure and transform the role technology plays within the organisation.


The move to Microsoft Azure accelerates the charity’s goal to create a world free from the fear of heart and circulatory diseases by 2030 with infrastructure that provides a foundation for growth and supports increased fundraising efforts. 


BHF’s website has become increasingly important for driving this mission by housing fundraising campaigns, the online retail business and acting as a source of information for all stakeholders.


Working with Rackspace, the migration to Microsoft Azure, has given the charity a scalable platform that is reliable and has an uptime of 99.9% to capture digital donations from across the globe.


Zero downtime


Rackspace Professional Services worked collaboratively with the charity, from designing the solution through to technical implementation. 


The migration took six months without a minute of downtime. 


One of The British Heart Foundation website’s recent campaign’s drove a significant traffic spike without encountering any of the issues the website faced in the past.


Mary O’Callaghan, director of technology engagement at the British Heart Foundation said: 

“A true partnership has been formed with the Rackspace Professional Services team who have supported us at every step of the process with unbiased expertise, deep platform knowledge, and a strong understanding of our operating environment.”
