iomart Hosting, the cloud computing and managed hosting provider, has taken Skyscanner, a European travel search website, into the cloud to support its objective of becoming the number one flight search engine in the world.
Founded in 2003 by IT professionals, Gareth Williams, Barry Smith and Bonamy Grimes, Skyscanner is based in Edinburgh with a second office in Singapore. Visits to the Skyscanner website have increased year on year to the point where over 14 million people use it every month (2011 figures). To cope with this huge and ever-growing demand for its service, Skyscanner needed cloud hosting backed by the most powerful servers. It turned to iomart Hosting.
