Working in hosting for more than a decade, we waited (and tried to capitalize) on a roundup of “Cyber Monday downtime” stories where online retailers suffered crushing loads and massive revenue loss.
2014 is the year every CTO, site administrator, front end dev and data center manager involved in building/planning online retail sites deserve a slow clap!
Search ‘Cyber Monday Downtime’ and note page 1 consists of hosting content titled similarly to “Preparing for the Holiday Crush”.
On the surface, this means the maturity of cloud and hybrid hosting eco-system, along side a deeper understanding of efficient front end development and database management, has finally caught up to the demand of modern web traffic.
So KUDOS to you internet warriors.. you unsung uptime heroes!
