Chicago Start-Up Company Moves to The Cloud Ahead of Television Debut

Chicago, IL - June 8, 2015

A new start-up company debuting on The Steve Harvey Show on June 9th decided to move to the AWS cloud after getting the IT help of West Hartford, CT based IT consulting firm, VIAcode Consulting LLC.

Alexis Reiff, Founder, CEO, and recipient of the 2014 Product of the Year award for her innovative Heel Swaps product knew that her upcoming television debut on the wildly popular Steve Harvey show would take her website traffic to a whole new level. She consulted an IT consulting firm, VIAcode, based out of West Hartford, CT to get the services she needed.

"The Steve Harvey Show contacted me one week before the airing and I knew my current hosting provider wasn’t up to the task of handling the projected website traffic especially with a television show that has over 3 million viewers per episode." explained Reiff. "I knew VIAcode was the right choice after speaking with their technical team. VIAcode’s success stories with clients like Microsoft, Cisco, Deloitte, and TyMetrix was the added assurance I needed to make the decision."

"They advised that based on my current website platform and the projected traffic that AWS (Amazon Web Services) with a load balancer would be the appropriate choice. VIAcode got on the task immediately and got it done."

"The team at VIAcode is the real deal. They held my hand during a very stressful time and made the transition to AWS a seamless process. I recommend VIAcode’s IT consulting services to any start-up or business for that matter that’s looking to transition into the cloud."

"We are pleased to form a relationship with Heel Swaps. We see the potential of the company and we’re excited to bring them to the cloud and beyond," stated Dmitriy Nikonov, Vice President, Technology and Operations.

Heel Swaps will be airing on The Steve Harvey Show, 6/9/2015 on NBC.
