Mage Mojo was founded in 2009 by Eric Hileman and Martin Pachol in response to the performance issues they saw clients having with Magento online stores.
Eric and Martin knew that many of these issues stemmed, not only from a lack of Magento-specific support but from the way that hosting companies were provisioning their servers.
Magento is a demanding, highly flexible application that requires considerable support and investment in additional hardware. The current infrastructure of traditional hosting companies just cannot securely and cost-effectively meet the high-performance demands required to manage and support Magento servers. Fortunately, Eric and Martin's extensive background in hardware and software positioned them to provide optimized hosting, using the latest technologies like solid-state hard drives and paravirtualization-to correctly run Magento.
Till this day, no other hosting provider can do what Mage Mojo does: run Magento better than anyone else.
