Internet Advertising Company

They sell and display ads on other websites, such as greeting card sites, which auction off ad space. They were spending far too much money on colocated servers to meet peak ad sales demand. They could not use Amazon because of their large number of open connections. They did not have the technical resources to deploy to the Cloud or provide a service that was ready to respond to successful ad auctions 24x7.
