Some 150 million heartfelt cards will go out today, making Valentine’s Day the second most popular card-sending day after Christmas. Many will come from Funky Pigeon, a UK online retailer. With so much revenue on the line, the company takes no chances: it teams up with Neustar to protect website performance.

“As one of Europe’s largest sellers of personalized printed cards and gifts, we are 100% dependent on online revenues,” said John Symonds, IT Services Manager, “particularly over the crucial annual peaks in trade: Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day and Father’s Day. There’s no room for slow page loads or site outages in this market.”
