UKFast has announced a five-year partnership with LateRooms.com to support the development of the online booking site’s technology infrastructure.

The significant deal will see Manchester-based LateRooms.com migrate its web hosting arrangements from a colocation solution with ATOS to a bespoke-built, cloud-based solution, developed in partnership with UKFast.

The recently launched cloud solution now regularly processes 6.4 million events an hour. Laterooms.com currently serves 100 million page requests a month.

Stuart Taylor, head of IO at LateRooms.com, said: “The new platform gives us improved stability, higher availability and the ability to scale up while remaining cost effective. In short we can do a lot more, with less.

“Throughout the migration process there have been learnings on both sides. UKFast has been thoughtful and responsive to the challenges we faced during a migration that was constrained within tight timescales. Together we have created an amazing platform that is a true business enabler.”

A four-month migration process saw project teams from both sides working to move LateRooms.com across to their new solution with zero downtime.

UKFast CEO Lawrence Jones said: “LateRooms.com is a brilliant online brand that we're incredibly proud to host. We won the deal up against some very good rivals but they chose us for a number of reasons.

“Growing a business is about the challenges you can overcome and the kind of partnerships you build along the way. They trust our brand and they know we care 100% about every element of the service and the experience we give them.”
