Rode Microphones established in 1967 have gone from strength to strength, with their products gaining worldwide acclaim. A key element to Rode's business is their website, which allows customers to view products, gain technical support and contact authorized dealers. As the website was a key element to sales, it had to have fantastic up time 365 days a year, 24 hours a day.

The servers were originally hosted by Rode as a self managed solution. However, Head of Marketing at Rode, Scott Emerton stated: "It just wasn't as scalable as we liked, we had issues of power and redundancy. We also had to rethink our approach to server management, which was key to the business.”

Rode then implemented a state of art virtual server in Macquarie Telecoms Intelli centre 1 data centre. Macquarie was able to take care of all the hosting components, so all Rode had to take care of was managing their website.

Emerton noted, "The guys look after us. We know that if we need something we can just get on the phone."

The Macquarie data centre offers high quality security, managed firewalls, intrusion protection and 24x7 monitoring.

Rode now have peace of mind knowing that customers can access their website, day or night. That's because our strict service level guarantees ensure we provide the highest level of availability for their business critical marketing platform. Emerton confirmed "Availability is excellent; I feel we’re getting a great level of reliability.”
