Datapipe’s Stratosphere® High Performance Cloud Provides a Scalable and Secure IT Environment for Breeders’ Cup Fantasy ‘Capping Game

Jersey City, NJ, July 30, 2013 –Datapipe, a global provider of managed services and infrastructure for outsourced IT and cloud computing, today announced that the Breeders’ Cup Limited has selected the company’s Stratosphere® cloud platform to deliver the Breeders’ Cup Fantasy ‘Capping (www.fantasycapping.com) online game. Stratosphere® enables the free fantasy horse racing game to scale quickly from virtually zero traffic during the off season to over 10,000 hits per day during the 14 weeks prior to the Breeders’ Cup. For more information, download the complete Breeders’ Cup case study.
The Breeders’ Cup World Championships is horse racing’s Super Bowl – an event that marks the end of the Thoroughbred-racing season. Billed as a two-day, $27 million extravaganza, the Breeders’ Cup is the ultimate horse racing and lifestyle experience for fans who come to see the world’s best horses, trainers and owners.

In 2012, the Breeders’ Cup began work with a California-based gaming developer to design Breeders’ Cup Fantasy ‘Capping, an online game much like fantasy football, to attract a larger base of younger racing fans to the sport. In order to provide a cost-effective solution with the security and reliability to handle traffic spikes and cyber attacks, the Breeders’ Cup turned to Datapipe.
“No other vendor could match the level of flexibility and scalability that Datapipe offered us,” said Justin McDonald, Vice President, Marketing/Digital Media, Breeders’ Cup. “Datapipe’s solution is the perfect fit for Breeders’ Cup Fantasy Capping because we pay for only the processing power we consume at any given time.”

Datapipe provisioned the organization’s online gaming service within the Stratosphere public cloud. Daily communication with the Breeders’ Cup team ensured that the fantasy game environment would support thousands of fantasy racing teams in a secure, optimized environment.
