Acquia Hosting Scales 10X for Major Music Festival
by Jim Salem
One of our newest hosting customers had a great success last week after moving their site to Acquia Hosting. They produce a major music festival being held in over 30 cities this summer.
They migrated their beautiful, Drupal-powered site to Acquia Hosting last week. One day later, tickets went on sale. Their traffic peaked at well over ten times what they'd led us to expect! Our monitoring alerts started going off about an hour before the tickets went on sale but well before the end users saw an impact.
Using our scalable, elastic architecture we were able to quickly upgrade their servers with no downtime and well before tickets went on sale. Their site was fast and responsive throughout the day despite the crush of traffic.
I love working at a place where we go the extra mile, ensuring our customer's success.
