If your website, web service, or web application is successful, it might have to operate under a great load- many simulations users. While it can be a nice problem to have, if your website or application doesn't scale up to meet its load demands, users will get angry and possibly abandon your site, product, or service. Avoid this by realistically planning for a particular load, implementing the scaling strategy, and testing it for that load before it goes live.
Our engineers at Planet Telex have actual experience dealing with applications and websites that have supported literally millions of users and thousands of unique visitors daily. When it comes to planning for loads and implementing solutions that work, experience is everything. Not every software engineer is given the opportunity to design software for many simultaneous users and we are thankful and proud of the fact that we have personnel on hand who have.
Not every solution will scale the same way, and some scaling solutions will be more cost effective than others. You need a knowledgeable professional who has been there to present options. This begins with an analysis- Planet Telex uses a wide variety of code analysis and testing tools, which includes testing software to simulate load. Scaling solutions can be hardware based, software based, or a combination of the two. This includes cloud based hosting providers and content delivery networks (CDN). A CDN can often be instrumental to achieving good performance at high loads, and we have expertise in integrating with CDN to provide your website resources.
