Media Storehouse creates e-commerce websites based around photography. The company offers two distinct photographic services: it creates online image libraries for sports clubs and media outlets, enabling the general public to select and buy prints via the internet; and photographers can upload images from their digital cameras for Media Storehouse to print and send directly to their homes.
Media Storehouse also offers a wide range of photographic enhancement services such as redeye correction, airbrushing and adding text to images.
As a small business, it was soon realised as impossible for the company to host its technology in-house. In order to meet the demand of global brands such as Media Storehouse’s first customer, Manchester United, the company would have to offer 24/7 cover. After all, people from around the world would be purchasing images at any time of the day or night, seven days a week. Reliable, robust technology was critical to the business’ success.
