Case Study: David Suzuki Foundation

The David Suzuki Foundation had a tight deadline.
Gossamer met it.

David Suzuki Foundation


When the David Suzuki Foundation designed their new website, they had difficulty securing a host that could provide the services and performance that they required for their new platform, all within a limited budget.


Feeling strongly about supporting the organization's agenda, Gossamer started by providing discounted services to the David Suzuki Foundation. Part of this solution included dedicated hosting, which eliminated the speed issues experienced by the original site. Additionally, Gossamer developed a tie-in between their blogging software Moveable Type and Solr, an open source search technology. This provided much more relevant results in near instant response, and included new functionality (i.e. highlighted search terms).


By consulting with the Foundation, Gossamer was able to make functional improvements to various aspects of the site, improving overall user experience. Meanwhile, a fully managed, dedicated hosting solution gave the organization the reliability and stability it needed in order to ensure that visitors could properly access the blog without the long wait times they had previously been experiencing.
