RatedPeople.com is the UK’s largest online trade recommendation service. It was founded in 2005 with the mission of connecting homeowners with the best local tradesmen. The infrastructure that RatedPeople.com had in place was stored in several locations, and was limiting business growth because it was becoming old, and difficult and expensive to maintain. RatedPeople.com wanted to migrate to Amazon Web Services in order to leverage the increased stability, high availability and enhanced deployment capability that it offers. They also hoped to increase the resilience of their infrastructure and develop a more sophisticated disaster recovery strategy.
