How Linode Helps FireServiceRota Keep Communities Safer

Presented by

Co-Founder/CTO of FireServiceRota, Ruben Stranders

About this talk

With a background in search and rescue work, Ruben Stranders wasn’t satisfied with the antiquated emergency alert systems for fire brigades in the Netherlands and other parts of Europe. Along with his FireServiceRota co-founder and lifelong friend, Cor Klaasse Bos, the Dutchmen knew there had to be a better way. Since its start in 2006, the company has evolved into an all-encompassing, state-of-the-art scheduling, deployment, and alerting tool with plans to expand to fire stations throughout Europe and North America. By streamlining highly time-sensitive and mission-critical scheduling and alerting services, FireServiceRota delivers greater freedom for firefighters while assuring that fire equipment gets adequately crewed. In a world where performance, backups, and automatic failover are essential, FireServiceRota cannot go down. “Linode’s clear pricing, simplicity, strong performance, and excellent service ensure the up-time and redundancy that is critical to what we do,” said Ruben. “It’s literally a matter of life or death.” To learn more about Linode's simple, affordable, and accessible cloud computing solutions, visit:
