Project objectives: Provision for reliable operation of a highly-attended website using CROC's Virtual Data Center computing capacities.
CROC hosted allforbear.com interactive website for 'Click for help' online charity project aimed at saving white bears. Any visitor to allforbear.com can make an online donation. CROC's Virtual Data Center ensures reliable website operation under load of up to 10,000 people per hour.

Customer quote: Viktor Nikiforov, "Bear Patrol" Project Manager in Russia: "The Arctic sea ice reached its critical minimum last autumn and according to experts the number of white bears in the world will fall by two-thirds from the current 20-25,000 by 2050. Allforbear.com website visitors can participate in addressing the problem by making an online donation: buy and settle a bear cub or adult bear on the ice floe. In addition, thanks to social network integration, visitors can make their friends aware of the project on Facebook, Vkontakte and Twitter and thus draw the attention of thousands of people."
